PC powers on/off during boot, wont complete boot

It's a friends pc. I replaced the power supply but that did not fix it. It's not a virus cause it did allow me to install linux. So the cd rom worked through the install. The computer has a lot of dust in it. I was going to blow it out tomorrow. Could it just be dust? Any other ideas.

I just finished cleaning and it is still power on off. I pulled the ram and it beeps. I un hooked everything from the mother board, pulled it out and cleaned it. I am beginning to think the hard drive is bad.
