I just bought some new pieces to build a new computer. Hadn't done so in a while. My problem though is that the computer is shutting down after POST every single time. This happens whether I am trying to install the OS or just load an existing OS. It will spend about 5 - 10 seconds then simply shut down. There are no flashes of BSOD, beeps, or warnings, just off.
I have unplugged everything but the hard drive (Tested this in another machine and its fine), 1 stick of RAM, video card, and CPU.
I'm not sure if this is a result of bad CPU or Motherboard. I tested the PSU on another working machine and it passed the test. I don't think the RAM is the problem since I don't get any hiccups or error messages. I unfortunately do not have another Intel compatible motherboard to try the CPU on.
I can sit in the BIOS all day long. CPU temp never exceeds 30c.
Any thoughts as to which piece might be the culprit here?
