So I took each component out bit by bit and it still didnt work until I was left with Motherboard, CPU and RAM left in, then when i switched it on it jsut kept going, well stayed turned on and the fan kept running. So I presume it isn't an overheating problem.
So I reattached the SATA HDD (Power and Data Cable) and it kept working. So tried putting in the grpahics card and then were back to the usual problem. Now taking it all out again and it still doesn't work.
I know it's going to happen because when i turn it on at the wall it will automatically start the computer (no swich on back) then kill it after about 5 second. Other times it waited until I hit the ON button and then it kept gonig all the time.
This is my first time at this so I'm not really sure what to try now.
System Hardware is:
AMD Athlon 64 939 CPU
Asus A8N5X Motherboard
2 x Corsair 512MB DDR400 ValueRAM
Inno3d GeForce 7600 GS Graphics card
Western Digital 250GB SATA HDD
Think thats all.
Any help appreciated. Thanks
Current Status[01:34 GMT]: Runs with no power connectors connected apart from the main 2 to the motherboard. No HDD/CD Drive or Expeansion cards. Doesn't cut out.
