Did it work?

Question

I went to turn my computer on in the morning and the fans came on, the lights on the tower flicker; but my monitor, keyboard, and mouse are not lighting up. I pulled the tower open and checked the different color wires coming out of the power supply and I'm getting power to all of them. When I turn it off and back on the cd-rom and the hardrive spin but then shut back down. I have had the puter for 13 months with a 12 month warranty.......go figure. I don't know whether I should replace the power supply or the mother board or just throw it out of the window :)

Maybe you need to replace the power supply because obviously there is not enougj power going to everything.
