Antec Three Hundred case.
Core2 Duo E4600.
CM Hyper TX2 cpu cooler.
Mushkin 2x2GB memory.
EVGA 8600 GT.
Enermax Liberty 500 watt psu, less than 1 year old.
This is my first time building a new pc.
I installed the above parts being as careful as I could be.
Had difficulty with the cpu cooler due to the push pins. Won't buy another cooler with that mounting system.
I went to boot up the pc and all it will do is turn on and then turn off again quickly.
Does not stay running for more than a second. The beep codes don't even sound.
The mobo has load lights on it and they all go on and then off with everything else.
The fans go on too. And of course they too go off.
I checked all the connections for any that might be loose but with no luck.
Also checked the switch connections. They were ok from what I could tell.
I removed the psu and hooked it up to my old pc again so that I could get online. So the psu is ok.
I hope somebody will be able to help with this.
