It's most likely an ATX power supply and depending on the BIOS settings, 
it might require you to hold the power button for at least 4 seconds, 
just hold it down till it powers off. If you can not get it to even 
post, it could be a cpu and/or memory issue or it might be as simple as 
a video card slightly out of it's socket. Open it up and make sure all 
cards and memory are seated properly and try it again.
