8rda3+pro wont boot up

Athlon XP 2400
512 MB pc2100 DDR
450W PSU
GeForce 128 MB Video Card

This Board has been giving me problems and i am out of ideas. At first i had my old 40G hard drive installed and it would boot up but would turn off after about 30 sec. I tried another power supply and the same thing happened. I have purchased a new hard drive and now it wont even stay on long enough for the BIOS screen to appear. I have all of the jumpers set up just as the book said and i have reset the CMOS many times. I am not an expert at this and Epox has not responded to my emails. I would appreciate anyone who may have an idea of what the problem is. Plz Help!

  1. what is your CPU temperature? If your CPU gets to hot it will shut down your system
  2. the highest i have seen it get up to is 100 degrees. It used to run at about 135 in my other system. The problem now is that i cant even get the screen to come up before it shuts down. Do you know of anything else or can it get hot that fast.
  3. is that C or f? Cuz if its c then i think there's a deff problem with your heatsink or cpu
  4. its farenheit. And I know that the processor is ok because have it back in my other system and running Motherboard Monitor its still about 120 to 135.
