Short somewhere. Any new hardware you've installed?

I've even had instances where a screw was causing the short, even though that same screw was in the case for over a year. Putting the computer back together I'd try power cycling after every little piece of hardware was added, and that one screw was the cause of my headaches. I left it off the mobo and it ran fine until I dismantled the build altogether.

Check cables closely that goes to power switch. If any of the cables looks too twisted or "naked" there is your problem, but still if there is no clear indication of damage cable still can be issue. If it isnt too much of the problem try with any other case to eliminate possible hardware failure
