Power Supplies usually don't get faulty. Sometimes my BIOS would get stuck & I plug the Lithium Battery (Coin Cell) out and plug it back in & Everything works fine. For example this problem is like having a USB storage stuck at copying/deleting something and you have to PULL IT OUT and PLUG IT IN to make it work again. Sometimes this type of problem may occur with SATA Cables, the one who connect motherboard with harddisk. Sometimes the ram would get faulty. Process remains the same. In 10 Years of my computing history I don't remember facing any problems with Power Supply Unit.

Hope this is revelant.

When I attempt to turn on my computer after playing with the switch front and back it will start sometimes and run for a few minutes and then shut down. When I remove the four pin connector to the mother...


I've seen this before but the 4 pin connector was burnt pretty bad and not making a good connection. I'd see if you could gently scrape the pins a little bit with a small knife(motherboard) See if the connector from the power supply looks ok and doesn't look like it's gotten hot. The holes in the center of the 4 wire connector can be a little bit larger than the pins themselves also. You might try plugging in the connector and then holding some side pressure on the connector while you try to start the computer. Also unplug the hard drive and cdrom while you try booting. The power supply may not be putting out enough amperage and unplugging drives may give it a little more power. That would mean you might need another power supply if it works.
