Im in the process of building a computer with the following specs:

Linkworld 2222 Case with 500W PSU
Asus P5B-VM BIOS 2107 or something like that
Intel Core 2 Duo E6300
2-GIGS of V-DATA PC2-5400 DDR2 RAM (2-sticks)
WD Raptor 74GB SATA
Pioneer DVR-111 DVD-RW
Floppy Drive
2-80MM Vantec Stealth Case Fans

When I press the power button it starts the processor and case fans for about 1/2 sec... then shutdowns... then 1-2 sec later it boots normally.

I tried unplugging all the power to my optical drives and HDD but still the same thing.

I have the 24PIN and 4PIN connector connected to the MOB.

Any ideas what this is?

Are you running overclocked?

The P5B's do this for some reason when OC'd.

No not overclocked this is stock initial build.

I fix the problem. The PSU needs to have power in it (connected to power outlet and PSU switch is on) for a couple of seconds before booting up. If you just plug in the computer and turn it on you will get that delay.

After its on I can turn on/off with no problems.

Thanks everyone,
