i have had to put a new motherboard in one of friends pc's, but the only thinkg is that when i go to power up i get a short burst of power and then within 1 seconds it cuts out, this will happen everytime i press the power button, but i cant get it too power up fully. is there anything i can do?

Sounds like the psu isn't powerful enough. Have you tried booting with only the bare minimum installed?

Q Tecs tend not to have the best reputation. What else is in the system?

Have you got the front panel connectors correctly wired up to the motherboard?

Try switching the ram around or using just one stick in different slots. Also make sure everything is connected and seated correctly.
