Hey! So I built my new rig and when I turned it on, it came on. After a few seconds, it turned itself off. Then it came back on, then off, on, off, etc. When it turns on, the PSU makes a click, and when it goes off it makes a click. Does anyone have any idea as to how to fix this? I've tried taking out either stick of RAM and turning it on, that didn't work. I reseated the mobo pwr connections and that didn't work. There is no voltage switch on my PSU as it's supposed to change by itself.

Thanks!

It's probably just something simple you've forgotten to do. Please see the following thread for a step by step run through...

Thanks so much! When I was going to remove the battery, I noticed that one of my sticks of ram wasn't in all the way :D  Thanks! I'll try to post pics soon!
