Help! Been battling with this new build all day!!

Hi All,
Hope help is available. Just built new PC with GA-7VT600 M/b and AMD 2.8+XP. It boots up and then cuts off after about a minute saying "Power Saving enabled. PC will shut down in a few seconds" and then it goes. I can't get beyong this point. Change PSU to 550w but still get same prob. The power led does not light up no matter which way I switch the front panel connectors. Any ideas appreciated. Tearing my hair out. H/D,CDRW, 512 ddr all detected at start up. URGENT!

BTW, the memory is 512 ddr 3200.

Have you been in the BIOS and switched power save off, if you have got a OS on then go Control Panel under Power put never for all items

woodchip, thanks for responding. It does not allow me enough time to get into Bios to change the Power settings. What do you think?

  rickf 17:24 09 May 2004

Its a new H/D and I have not installed OS yet. I can't get beyond the first minute before it turns off.

Try new memory, just use one stick in slot 0 or 1 which ever comes first

Can you not get into Bios at all?

  woodchip 17:32 09 May 2004

It may be a faulty Mobo

What graphics card do you have?

Can get into Bios very briefly before it shuts down. I have just reset the cpu and spread more artic silver on it. It seems to be constant now but I can't get the CDRW to work so U can install drivers for the M/b. Help!! Graphics is FX5200 128mb Ultra. It seems ok from that end.

Remove all hardware and just leave CPU and fan one stick memory and graphics card see if it will boot to BIOS
