System Specs
i5 2500k
MSI P67A-GD65
8GB Corsair Vengeance
650W XFX P1-650S-NLB9
1GB MSI GTX 460 Hawk talon attack

I have a little experience with computers but this is my first build for about 5 years

thanks in advance,

Call an exorcist?

Not sure, might be overheating?

Did you overclock?

It turns off and then powers up but nothing appears on the screen before turning off again in a loop sometimes.

Sorry you're having trouble, bud! That's the worst -- I was devastated when I put my computer together and it didn't work. All part of the process I guess.

I'd wonder if it's overheating too, even without an overclock. My computer did that for a while b/c I hadn't seated the fan on the CPU correctly. I don't know what the technical name for them is, but only two of the four clips on the fan had snapped properly into the motherboard, and the connection wasn't enough to cool the processor.

have you monitored your temps and i am not sure i remember that my stock cpu cooler had abit on two sides and did no cover the entire cpu. i have a idle of 31c to 33c on all cores so you should be somewhere around that.
