Computer won't boot after plugging in 2x2.

My comp won't boot after plugging in my 2x2 plug to the mobo. I press the power button fans start spinning and LEDs come on but only for literally 1 second. Without the 2x2 plug in everything runs, but obviously that doesn't help me since the 2x2 powers the CPU. I've already reseated everything within the PC and even had my CPU replaced under warranty thinking that my have been the problem. Any ideas what may be going wrong?

    Already read it. Didn't help me =/
  2. Reading the checklist won't help you. Did you actually perform each step in the checklist? What are the complete system specs? Is this a new build, or an existing build? We need a lot more information in order to help you.

    Didn't work =/ thanks though.
  6. Remove the mobo from the case, and try again.

    If not, swap in a new psu and try again.

    Once again we ask, post spec including psu and age.
