the power light keeps blinking fast

Specs: xp home, 2 mhgz / 1gig
I'm having the same problem with an emachine T2042; the power supply failed and even after I replaced the power supply with a truepower 2.0 ATX12V the power light keeps blinking fast and the machine does not commence the boot sequence. Unless the power supply I bought is somehow incompatible I'm starting to think that it's a motherboard problem. Does this make sense?

It makes sense to me...lotta stories out there of psu failures cooking the motherboard at the same time.

An off-the-shelf psu may not fit the case, but it should power the system OK.

Sounds like the motherboard to me.
