When i try to start my PC the LEDs in the PSU turn on for about one second and then fails to turn on. The fans, heatsink, and disk drive all start up for a split second, barely long enough to even notice, and then fails. Intel Core 2 Duo processor has had overheating issues in the past. The only variable since the successful boot was different RAM sticks. It did work about five minutes before this happened.

If specs are needed I will reply with them.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks, Fakebird.

EDIT: PC that is having difficulty is running on XP SP2, not Win7 Beta.

We definitely need the specs. Include the power supply brand name and wattage in these specs.

Unfortunately i lost my receipt and box the PSU came in. I will take it out and look it up for the specs. My case is a real hassle to work with, seems that someone thought putting power supply RIGHT next to the pump for the cooling system was a good idea. Either way i will get back to you with that ASAP. Thanks for the help,

If you simply take the side of the case off, the brand name and watts are right there on the side...should not have to remove anything.

Actually both sides of the case are off, the tubes from the pump and the wires coming off of it are blocking my view of the front. the side of it that's visible has no stickers or anything of the sort on it. The PC is not brand name and the frame of the case blocks the view of the only sides i can remember it having a logo or model number on while i was putting it in.

the whole thing is a power hungry machine. the PSU it self has at least 2 LED fans in it. theres 3 large fans through out the rest of the PC and then it has to run the liquid cooling.

Is heat-sink on CPU dusted???
If it is, blow dust with compressed air...
remove heat-sink, remove old thermal paste from both CPU and heat-sink with alcohol and apply new thermal paste... Arctic Silver 5 would be the best choice for me...

Also, sort cables inside the case so air can flow in circle, not to be disrupted by cables...

Well there is a bit of another problem with the processer. The pump in the cooling system died out at somepoint in time, but when i dont know. i could have been running it without any form of heatsink working for up to 3 or 4 months. one day it finnaly shutdown due to over heating. i took out the heat sink to see what was up and the processer was VERY hot, hot enough to burn someone.
