Hiya, 1st post, having some trouble with some components i bought off e-bay, advertised as new,but from private seller-so no support.

asrock wolfdale1333 glan r2 m/b
3.00ghz intel pent d cpu
2xpluss i gig mem
128mb pci-e video

old case-350 watt atx.

I was going to replace my old system core components and installed the new ones, (ive built many systems over the years, but not for a couple of years)so i sort of know what im doing. powered the pc up and fan starts- no post beeps. the system stays on for about 1-2 mins and shuts off- leading me to think its cpu related.

ive tryed taking out and swapping the mem, still the same-if i take out the mem completely i get post beeps, im scratching my head on this one and need to know what component-(if any) is at fault to return the goods.

any help will be appreciated.

You're underpowered.

That psu has no chance of powering that machine.
What Model is the Video card?

For todays computers - No lower than a 550W ( Thats for a Medium range ). High end computers need around and over 750W

Good makes

Thermaltake toughpower
Antec trio
Coolermaster real power pro
PC power and cooling
Corsair TX and HX

No problem, Just remember you cant overpower your computer so spend a few $$$ now and you'll save yourself having to upgrade in the future !

Let Us know how it goes. :grin:
Got new psu and no different. turned out to be faulty stick of ram. remember now why i stopped this pc malarky. cheers anyway dood.
I thought you tried swapping the RAM? Ahwell, Glad it's sorted. But Remember You didn't blow cash on that new PSU - Its The Main component in the System so make sure its top notch :grin:
