When I turn my computer on it powers up for a few seconds the shuts off for a few seconds the turns back on and works fine. I have never seen this before. Is there a problem with my power supply or could it be something else?

Here is my system:

CASE: COOLERMASTER CM 690 II ADVANCED
MOTHERBOARD: EVGA P55 SLI
CPU: INTEL I5 750 W/ STOCK FAN
MEMORY: 4GB OF G SKILL DDR3 1600MHZ
HARD DRIVE: 1TB SAMSUNG SPINPOINT F3
GPU: EVGA GEFORCE GTS 450 SUPERCLOCKED
PSU: COOLERMASTER SILENT PRO 600W
CD/DVD: SAMSUNG CD/DVD BURNER

Any idea?

Thanks

Hmmm, did you do any changes to the PC before this? Try a diffrent plug in the room, also check that all the cables are attached correctly.

I just built the system and have had it plugged in to several plugs. I check all the connections and reseated all of the components. when the pc turns on i get a beep code of beep pause beep beep pause beep pause beep. This is after the on off on sequence. The computer works fine once it posts.

Does the mobo manual include specific error sequences that will tell you the problem? A 600W PSU shouldn't sweat under the likes of even a superclocked 450.

I figured out the beep code. It has to do with the system recognizing the usb devices connected to the computer. I disconnected them and the beep cone changed to just two beeps. one for the front panel usb and one for the media card reader. I also noticed that it powers off when the led poster is on 03 which is for post bios.

From what i have found, the double boot when you turn the computer on is a normal function of the evga p55 motherboards. It has something to do with system check and overclocking.

Thanks for the help
