sounds like a problem i had a while ago, turns out i forgot to plug the CPU fan in. however, mine would just keep on going... good to know that my old air cooler would run fine in all office tasks with no fan......
First off, the amount of help I got on this so quickly is amazing. I am extremely appreciative to all of you guys. Thank You!
Secondly, as of right now the computer is lying in wait for a new heatsink. After seeing the posts I turned it back on, and noticed something. It took a good 5 seconds after the beeps to power itself off. I actually saw some text appear on the screen, but it shut down before I could start to read it.
Then I turned it on again immediately and it powered down immediately after the beeps. Same on the 3rd start.
So I'm guessing it's a heat issue. The heatsink is a tight fit, so I'm assuming it's just not seated properly (the fan cablle was attached btw). Guess it's just to big for this mobo/case combination. Going to get a smaller one next week and give it another go.
