Not the power supply

Since it's one of the handy kinds with a light and a fan, I just jumped ground and power-on, and it spun up nicely.

Since the same behavior was present when the power button was unplugged I think that the motherboard has to take the blame here. It could be that the CPU fan reporting mechanism is broken, but they don't really give good diagnostics in those situations.

Since this was "reasonable" equipment in 2004, looks like I need a new motherboard, CPU, and RAM; as all of those have changed dramatically since then.
