Thread Starter 
I found out that it was my PSU so i got a new one. I plugged it all together. Now after 5 sec it turns off again. Do i have it plugged in wrong or what? Thanks

Do you have your cpu fan plugged in?
sounds like you might be overheating and your motherboard is shutting itself off to protect your components.

I built my first computer today, but I wasn't successful. I push the power-up button and the computer turns on for about ten seconds, the fans start whirring including the CPU fan, and then the computer turns off. I'm not sure what could be wrong. Does anyone have any ideas?

Also mine beeps once so i know POST is working



Some guy posted that and that is exactly what is happening to mine.

Did you fubar an overclocking configuration? Try doing a CMOS reset if you touched anything in the BIOS that might screw up your machine.

Also, make sure your CPU isn't overheating. If your heatsink is loose on it then that's your problem.

Alex, when I come over today, I'll double-check the connections first and then I'll try resetting the CMOS. I suppose I can bring along some AS5 and reseat the heatsink if we need to, but I don't think you have touched it since I built it for you last time time, so I doubt that is the problem.

I would also suggest the near certainty that this problem is either a BIOS screw up (have you OCed a E6420 to 5ghz?) or a heat sink problem. More likely it is the latter.

What processor and HSF are you using? (It would be helpful if you post your system specs)

You maybe be getting a short somewhere on the mobo. Take all components out of the case and only plug in bare minimum to boot. Which means have your mobo, cpu, gfx card, ram, PSU and monitor plugged in. Note: All components should be out of the case when you do this.
