I suspected as much. The PSU was literally the only thing that came with the case (which is also a Blueberry). I just had no idea what could be the problem when it looks like it works fine (as in no noise, the fan is spinning normally etc). I guess I'll replace the PSU then, I hope that resolves the problem. But yeah, I should replace it either way.

You have not been able to purchase a PC case that also shipped with a good quality PSU for many years, last ones that I can recall were from Antec, simple reason being is that a good quality PSU costs more than a junk PSU meaning that fitting a good PSU in even a mediocre case would make it look expensive.

When replacing the PSU, don`t go cheap or you will end up back in the same predicament, ask your yourself whether or not you want to go for an add on video card in the future then make an allowance for the extra power that you would need and finally use the dimensions of the present PSU to make sure any replacement will fit, the present PSU dims are below;

Dimensions
15cm x 8.6cm x 14cm ( W x H x L )

I just had no idea what could be the problem when it looks like it works fine (as in no noise, the fan is spinning normally etc).

As a PSU puts out various voltages +3.3V, +5V and +12V it may appear that the PSU is working correctly but it is not, any significant drop of any output can prevent the system from booting up, the other scenario is a significant increase in the output which can be worse as it can fry one or more major components such as the MB, CPU, RAM, add on video card etc.

Long shot I know but is there anyone that you could borrow an appropriate PSU from to swap in for testing purposes, any decent 300W or above unit that has the required cables will do.

You are welcome btw :)
