I just built a new system, it has about 3-4 hours of total run time. I was running great last night. I put the computer into hibernation overnight. Went to turn it on this morning and it booted up all the way to windows then the whole system turned off. I tried to power it on, with no luck, no lights no fans. So i pulled the power cord and held the power button to clear the capacitors, and then after doing this tried to power it back up and the LEDs and fans get power for about a second. I cant figure out why, it was running great last night...now it does not even get to POST :( 

Hardware
MoBo- MSI 880GM-E43 AM3 AMD 880G -Open Box discount from new egg
RAM- WINTEC AMPX 4GB (2 x 2GB) -Open Box discount from new egg
CPU- AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz
PSU- CORSAIR Builder Series CMPSU-600CX 600W
GPU- PCIe ATI HD 4650(Power Color)
x2 HDDs SATA
x2 DVD drives IDE



One thing i haven't tried is pulling the CMOS battery, ill have to try that when i get home... please let me know if you have better ideas.

I didn't have time to check out much more on the system, please let me know of any ideas you think would help, thanks.

I already figured out the problem, its a DOA MOBO, PSU functions fine on other MOBOs. Thanks for the reference though.
