[Asus P6T] Starts up and then quickly shuts down

I had to move all my components to a new case. Now I can't get the system to start up. If I press the on board power button or the power switch at the top of the case, the fans come to life (including the CPU fan) for about a half a second and then shut down. Then they don't start up again. I have to turn the power switch off on the PSU to repeat this action again.

I've seen somebody else have this problem with an MSI board. The community advised him/her it was probably something with the cpu. I'm not sure that's my problem. I never removed the CPU from the mobo when I removed everything from the system that was working.

Any ideas? Thanks

Just got exactly the same thing with my P6T.
Anybody have a diagnosis or a fix for this?

Turned out to be the CMOS battery - replaced it and everything worked.

Yeah, my problem was more boneheaded. The motherboard was touching the chasis. I had forgotten about the mounts. I guess the mobo knew it wasn't grounded and immediately shutdown. Once the mounts were setup correctly, the problem was fixed.
