So I decided to build my own.. Heres what I got:
Couple sticks Crucial Ram etc.
Built it the first time... would power up for 2 seconds & shut down.
Thought it was the power supply... bought a tester... no problem when I bypass the mobo, everything lights up and runs except the cpu fan which is hooked up to the mobo.
Figured it was a short in the mobo... sent it back... got the new one... did it all again.... same thing.
Any ideas?... could it be a bad cpu? Any way to test it? This stuff isn't that complicated and I've double checked all the connections....
I really don't want to bring this into Comp Usa & have them laugh at me
Any help would be most appreciated.
just trying to put a little distance......
..... between causes and effects
