Thread Starter 
You know how when you turn a computer on for the first time? and it kinda starts then shots off then restarts again? well my computers doing that but its not posting after that i think i can rule out the power supply ive tried two power supplies but it sometimes works on the old power supply but sometimes it also does the same thing any ideas? thanks!

Try re-seating the processor and applying a fresh coat of thermal paste.

Clear CMOS and set defaults, see if it still has a problem. If it *sometimes* works on your old one, and not at all on the "new" one, I'd try another known good one.

Also, if still no-go try stripping down to GPU, CPU, RAM only and see if it posts.

I've experienced similar issues, but every time my rig wouldn't POST, it would give me beep codes to tell me why it wasn't POSTing. It helped to reseat the CPU and swap RAM sticks around, so I would give that a try.

I had this same problem, and it turned out to be a bad secondary CMOS chip, the one that holds the default info and loads it onto the primary when an OC fails.

No POST beep codes is a serious problem, because whether it's the RAM, video card, or CPU, the mobo should be telling you what's wrong. No beeps at all means there's either power being interrupted (bad PSU), or the CMOS isn't communicating. If you can, try a different PSU.

Re-seat everything. Or just try to boot using the bare minimum you can, only 1 stick memory, no dvd drives, no USB devices, onboard video if you have it, etc.

Or he simply doesn't have a speaker hooked up. I don't because I don't need one.

If the above advice doesn't cover it, check to see if your MOBO is grounding out. Have had that happen with a few PC's where occasionally everything boots fine, and will be alright for a while, and then suddenly, grounding causes it to brick.
