PC Restarting and Stopping

  goll_y 18:46 30 Dec 2005

I'm putting together a PC with parts that friends have donated (along with things that I have lying around).

Anyway, I think everything is connected properly but in an attempt to format the hard drive by loading on Fedora 4, the computer will either restart or just shut down, no hanging or no blue screen but just restart/shut down.

I reckon there may be any number of things causing the problem but would appreciate suggestions! I've not got any operating system loaded on the HD so am starting from scratch.
