    Do you have a way to test the power supply? Test the power supply and see if it is putting out the full power. Is there a light on your motherboard to let you know that it has power. What is,
    SMPS is OK. I have no idea what that it. Do any of the fans turn on? How do you know if the motherboard is working?

I turn on my PC than half second turn off itself

It could be a motherboard problem, but, this may sound silly, but it could also be a stuck up power or reset button. I had this experience with a desktop pc where the power button got stuck in its "press" position. Try removing the connection of these switches from the mboard and use a metal screw driver to act as the switch by momentarily shorting the power switch connection on the board.

--you can also check the cmos battery of the pc. These newer boards would refuse to even power up if the cmos battery are drained.

IBM NetVista unable to bootup

This happens when the reset button inside is stuck. If the system is under warranty. Opening the case will void warranty. If it is out of warranty.... Open the cabinet and you can find a chunk of wires crowded in to a point on the motherboard. If you care fully inspect you will find a pair of pin (jumper pin) marked "RESET". If there is some obstacle that is shorting the contact, remove it and offcourse clean the dust particles or other material that could cause trouble. This should solve the problem
