    Yes, it sure is possible, It supplies power to many components and different connections and with different voltages come from several voltage regulators in the PSU, so it's possible that it gives some signs of life but with abnormal or no voltages to other parts and cause complete shutdown or inability to start whole machine.

    If you are running a desktop PC, then remember that your monitor has it's own power supply and that could be faulty!

    Check the connection between PC and monitor (cable).
