New motherboard giving me a really hard time.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Installed a new motherboard.

Computer boots up and then shuts back down immediately within 3-5 seconds when using power button.

The only way to get it to boot up completely is holding the Clear CMOS button.

Once it does boot, it tells me that the overclock has failed and I should reconfigure the settings. I've set it to default quite a few times already.

If I save and restart once I'm done in the BIOS, it powers down completely. If I power it up again, it powers down right away.

I was able to reformat Windows by getting into BIOS and using the boot menu with a CD. I was also able to get into Windows through boot menu by booting into the main HD, but the Windows Update fails to work. The Internet browsers are working fine. Nothing else works.

Again, rebooting the computer just powers it down completely and permanently until I hold the Clear CMOS button.

What does this sound like?

I'm confused! lol!

So you installed a new motherboard in an existing system? Or a brand new system? Same motherboard you had, or a different one?

WHAT motherboard?

Did you wipe your boot drive and reinstall windows? Or is this the old install of windows for the old motherboard?

WHAT windows?

More information, please!

Reminds me of an old Shuttle I had that had a proprietary PSU that was only 250W I had an nvidia 9600gt that ran fine until I OC'd it and broke it. So i got a 9800gt which needed 300W PSU minimum. When I powered up for the first time it would shut off right away I essentialy had to prime the power button like a lawn mower to get it to turn on. It was like that every time i had to turn it on. I know its not the same but seems vaguely similar. What are all of the specs on your rig?
