New system built last weekend and when I turn the power on after 10 to 15 seconds the system shuts down. :(  Everything looks like going to start fine, but just shuts down to quickly.

Motherboard Asus P8P67 Deluxe B3 Revision
RAM G.Skill RipJawsX DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 4MBx2
CPU Intel i7 2600
GPU EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX580
PSU Antec 550 Watt BP550 Plus
DVD Lite-on
HD Western Digital 1T WD1002FAEX
Case Nine Hundred Two

nVidia's suggested power supply wattage for the GTX 580 = 600W.

Remove your GPU and try to turn it on. Or, test with a more powerful PSU if you have access to one.

I removed the GPU and there is no change in the system behavior, I timed the shutdown and it is 5 seconds not 10 to 15 seconds. I do not have another PSU.

Thanks

Is this a new problem - or has the computer never worked?

Did you breadboard (external build with mobo, ram, cpu, psu, graphics) before installing everything inside the case? If so, did your system POST?

Consider going through this troubleshooting list:

No I did not breadboard.

I did remove all the power connections except the motherboard connection and still powers off in 5 seconds.

This is a new system that I built yesterday and acted like this on first power up.

So you can't even get into bios?
Beeps?
Leds on mobo?

:)  The computer power stays on now. :) 

Steadywaters suggest that I check out
http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-ste.... #2 CPU Power Connector, I notice no power going to the motherboard EATX12V connection or CPU Power Connector. I connected the power to the connections and the power stays on now.

I would say Asus manual is not very clear about the EATX12V connection or CPU Power Connector, not clear at all.

Everyone thank you fro helping me out in this problem, now I can press on setting up my new system, you'll made the day.

Thanks.

So I am not going to be able to use a 550 Watt PS with the GTX-580?

Your system will probably shut down once you start pushing the GPU on graphics-intensive applications (such as a game).

It's always best to follow the suggestions of the manufacturer - so pick up a solid 600+W PSU (Corsair, Antec, SeaSonic, XFX brands come to mind).

After I brought the PSU, that wondering in back of my mind started if I had brought enough watts.

Thanks for the help.

250w is only 25amps so I would try running your system first. As long as you use 6/8 pin connections from different rails you should be fine. I would try it before you buy a new one. If you want to know if it will work all the time, try running Furmark. It runs your GPU at maximum, so you will know if it works.
