Still more computer hell

Will it never end? I drive out to Best Buy and plunk down $80 for a new power supply unit, install it in Paul's computer, turn on the switch, and ...

the system behaves exactly as it did with the origional power supply unit. It powers up for half a second and shuts down.

The remaining two most likely possibilities are:
1. bad motherboard
2. bad CPU.
Of course, it could be both of the above. Replacing the motherboard is a bit cheaper, so I am trying that first. However, I had to order the board and must now wait for delivery. Blah.
