well, i'm back again. i am still working on building my computer and here are the specs again:

https://www.techsupportforum.com/f15/...up-410537.html

i was installing xp (i thought maybe my vista cd got corrupted, luckily still kept my xp cd) and had formatted my hd for it. after 2 hours of formatting, the computer shuts down again. now my problem is that whenever i start the computer, the cpu and case fan kicks on for a few seconds and nothing loads on the monitor and then the computer turns off . i don't think it is the memory because i tried 1 stick, no sticks, and a stick from another computer and same results. the only thing i noticed is that on the motherboard display, i see a c1 and then it kicks off.

i googled the c1 error and i've seen people say replace motherboard, replace cpu, replace hard drive and replace power supply. but in the examples i read, they were computers used for years and mine hasn't been used a week. any suggestions on what to check and how?

My System


Probably either the motherboard or the power supply. Do what simpswr said and try a bench test.
