I am installing a new A7V8X motherboard. I am using Transcend DDR 333 memory CAS 2.5, Athlon XP 188+

The PC boots up, and I can enter the BIOS setttings. But after maybe 10 seconds, with or without making any changes, the PC switches itself off. I have tried many times, even booting without going into the BIOS, and each time the PC switches itself off after 10-15 seconds.

Any suggestions?

Can you post some more of you computer stats?

Power supply too weak maybe? Check the seating of your ram and all your cards.

Soon enough, Intel will make the i845s...imagine dual channel Sdram...*shudder*

I have managed to sort out the problem. Was due to the processor fan not properly seated on the CPU
