Hi all,

I am trying to build my new pc - it is my first time so I'm not entirely sure what i'm doing. Having connected all the hardware I powered on for the first time - after about ten seconds of loading up the PC shut down and will now not power on at all. I know this is probably very little information for you guys but do you have any thoughts? If you have questions I'll be happy to answer.

I've just found that the power supply is buggered, so mystery solved!
