Hi, I have just joined the forum.

I put together a computer about 2 days ago. Everything seems to be ok apart from this. When i start the computer it stays on for about 3 seconds everything loads up ok and then about 3 seconds it switches off. It will the switch back on again and stay on until i shut it down. Any help would be much appreicated.

I had a similar issue with my new build, turned out to be the power supply couldn't handle the startup load, I would return that PSU and get another because it should be big enough.

Just my 2 cents do with it what you will.
