i set it all up, turned the computer on, and then got this message, "H/W MONITOR STATUS ABNORMAL enter setup to check voltage, fan speed and temp stats. i've done this multiple times, then someone told me on another forum that it was probably because of my power supply being bad. which i think is impossible because it is a brand new 500v power supply.

i have an asus m2n-e motherboard, a AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000 cpu, and some rather old nvidia gforce card. i've tried three different power supplies, all have the same problem.

vcore voltage - 2.10v
3.3v - 3.43v
5v - 5.13
12v - 12.43
m/b temp - 33celcius
cpu fan speed - 3000rpm

i can't seem to figure out how to fix this. any help would be great. thanks

edit: i forgot to mention that the computer restarts after about 3 minutes
