It sure is odd.
What do you mean with "I can hear the Processor working" ? me it looks like the computer hasn't been turned on'll get a short power burst until the ATX power supply notice the computer is turned off and cuts the power.
So I still stand by my first assumption: a defective/malfunctioning power switch.
Or can you actually open the DVD drive after the fans have stopped ?

On a different note : You shouldn't pull the plug off the mainboard just by the cable strands. there is a little "lock thingy" on the plug you should press to release the cable.

When the fans stop spinning... i can hear the processor working. as in i still can hear the computer on when the fans stop spinning. No, i do not get a video display. I did connect the DVD drive to the power and was able to open/close the tray.

i ordered a 20 pin to 24 pin PSU connector from ebay. i have three power supplys at home that can be swapped out and used to see if it's the actual PSU that is defective... either way. Why does the computer power on when plugging in the power chord... and wont turn off...

This may be a silly question ... is the monitor securely plugged in? On my XP, the monitor has a way of losing it's connection if I move it, even slightly.

The monitor is plugged in, when the machine powers on. the monitor does also however no video output is shown. To verify that the monitor was correctly working... while the computer was "on" I disconnected the monitor from the back of the computer and "video source is not founf" on the monitor appears so yes. the monitor is plugged in. No such thing as a silly question ...

It's time to come up with a solution. when i get the converter that i orderes for the PSU... to test the spare ones i have lying around. Whats the next thing i should be looking at? ... this is really frustrating.

Did you check the settings on the monitor as the tint or contrast turned all the way?
