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.
