Hi i just was putting together my first pc im bulding and i power it on and the cpu fan starts to spin for a minute and it just shuts off a few seconds later? i cant figure out what the problem is


The MOBO is - http://www.asrock.co...39Dual-VSTA.htm

and i have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core cpu

this is the first time i am putting everything together so i dont really have any experience thanks


Edit: I think i have found my problem, would http://www.performan...pinext12_01.jpg that being broken make it do that?

When that is unplugged, or plugged in it keeps starting up and turning off

Random re-starts normally happen due to insufficient power supply, I dont know the full spec of your machine, but when building a good quality system I use a 500W True Power.
Some may say 500W but they are not, you need to be paying around £40-£50 for a decent 500W PSU.

ensure all power connectors are properly in place. What power supply are you using, and with what hardware?

Finally, make sure the motherboard is properly set inside that case on top of the standoffs. If you think that's correct and it's still having problems, shut the psu off completely, carefully take the motherboard out of the case and onto the foam or whatever it came packaged in, and see if it works yet.
