Ok i just got my new mobo to work and i was installing files and it was getting slow. So I restarted, but now my computer wont reboot. I press the power on, and for a few seconds it will be alive and then it will turn itself off.

Sounds like you may not have your heatsink installed on the processor properly, Tipped up and not sitting flat.

Make sure the heatsink fan is connected to the proper header on the motherboard.

Try unplugging all unecessary components...just leave bare components necessary for pc to work...and try booting up...and like speedo said, check and recheck your heatsink...is your power supply working properly or is it getting overloaded ?

HTH... :winkgrin:

i unplugged everything (and i mean everything). The only thing that is plugged in is of course the mother and the cpu fan. It still shuts off.

Lets try the old out of the case routine..

Disconnect everything off of the motherboard except the CPU, Heatsink and Fan.

Take the motherboard out of the case and lay it on a phone book or something non conductive.

Hook up the following items only.

Hook up the wire that comes from the power button on the front of the case to the correct header, See manual.

Hook up the the power supply to the motherboard.

Insert one stick of ram.

Insert the video card all the way.

Hook up the monitor.

Hook up power to computer.

Turn on the monitor.

Turn on computer.

You should have video on the monitor.

This sounds like a lot of work but it narrows down the devices to a few.

Try this and post back with the results, Relax and take your time...
