Hello, im having problems with a new pc i have just built. it is my first build and tbh i'm no expert but i have had it running for about a week. then the other day i went to start it and it starts for like 3 seconds then restarts again there is nothing coming through to the monitor so it doesnt even get to the BIOS screen. i had this problem when i first built it but i had taken everything out and back in again and it was fine. one of my friends says its the ram the other says motherboard can anyone help please?

and i am thinking it is psu. mobos and rams don't develop on and off symptoms.
Something might be shorting circuits in your case.
Which psu you got?
