Hi, Ihave just completed building my pc. When I push the power on button the pc starts for a few seconds then powers off again. I have made sure all connections are seated ok. Any sugestions where to start looking?
Start off by only having the absolute essentials connected up - PSU, motherboard (and its peripheral bits like case speaker and switches) and monitor. See what you get with that. If it's OK and one more item (HDD). It that's OK add another and so on. Take note of the beeps you get.
Thanks for the replies. I have a H00b aopen case, AMD 2800+ XP,GA 7AXP A ULTRA MB, 512KB 184DIMM PC3200 RAM, RADEON 9000PRO ALL IN WONDER, DIMONDMAX PLUS9 120GB SATA150 HDD, MIS CDRW.IIYAMA 17" Flat Screen. Thats all that's connected so far. cheers Ian.
Is your psu powerful enough to supply the various bits? On a system such as yours I would expect it to be at least 350. 450 would be even better. As indicated it could also be overheating and yes you need to detach the protective sheeting from the H/sink.
