Hi guys, im stumped, i need help before i start throwing things

Put my P4C800-E board in my new system, and everything booted fine, Posted, did the ram check, shows the correct cpu, picks up my serial ata hard drive, then goes to the checking raid drives, doesnt find anything then the whole system powers off

does it everytime

have changed video card, ram, unplugged all devices and cards and ran nothing but the video, ram, and cpu, took the board out of the case to rule out grounding problem, still does it.

cant boot off floppy to flash bios, wont go INTO bios.

Im lost, need help if anyone can.

well, dont know why this is, but i had one bad ram chip the next day, it wouldnt boot whatsoever, so i eliminated that, and it went far enough where i could get into the bios and shut off the raid....this helped, once, but started doing it again. I had a friend tell me he had something similar to this happen to him, and he pulled the power connector off the motherboard while there was power hooked up, and it helped him, so we tried this, and it went even farther, he did it again and it started booting, that plus the ram chip that was going out was causing the problem...and now it works perfectly......


thanks for all the suggestions though everyone
