Computer won't boot up...need help please

During the last week, I've only gotten my computer to boot up twice after many tries. It'll start up normally for a split second, then everything (fans, drives, etc) suddenly shuts off, but the power light stays on. Like many other people, I usually leave my computer on for days at a time and haven't had any big problems until now. Could it be the power supply, motherboard, or something else? I don't have a spare power supply to test with, so I'd really appreciate some advice before I go spending money.

Here are some specs:
Amd xp 2800+
DFI nforce2 400-al motherboard
1gb pc3200 ddr ram
420w power supply

If any other info. is needed, I'd be glad to oblige.
