Ok, my friend got a new case video card etc. basicly a new computer.

When he turns his computer on, its on for about 7 or so seconds and then shuts off. no Dos or anything.
:whistling: we do not know the problem, but im hoping you guys do.


Thanks

Have you checked the wiring to the fans as it is probably going straight to the temperature which makes it shut down
