When I power on the computer it begins for about 4 sec and automatically shuts down - the fans start and everything - but then it just stops - If i unplug and wait a while it will do it again - I have replaced the power supply same things happens - what now? :tazz:

Is this a new build?
What is the name brand, model name and model number?
or list sys specs

Check that the cpu fan spins
Make sure the cpu fan is pluged in and also into the correct header on the mobo
Check that the heat sink (hsf) is not loose in any way.

Check and answer these then post back
