What could be a power supply problem

Question

The computer started to randomly shut off and reboot. After doing this two or three times in a row it finally does not come on at all. It turns the power on and the fans start running but the computer does not do anything. When it first started it would go throught the boot sequence but now it does nothing. There is also a red light that comes on in the front of the case.

I have tried dissconnecting the drives and it still does nothing. I also checked to see that the video card was seated good, The monitor says check signal cable.
