New build turns off and then back on after inserting CD or USB device Tags: New Build CD-Rom Systems Last response: December 23, 2012 1:49 PM in Systems Share andyrew004 December 23, 2012 6:11:55 AM So this my third PC that I'm building, but I have never encountered this problem. These are my specs: Specs: Intel Core i5-3570K Corsair H60 Liquid Cooler GA-Z77X-UD5H Seagate Barracuda SATA 6Gb/s 1TB HDD 16GB Corsair 1600Mhz DDR3 Corsair 650watt TP-Link PCI Express Wifi Adapter (TL-WDN4800) ASUS CD/DVD RW drive Everything was seemingly installed correctly, and when I turned the computer on, it worked well with the mouse and keyboard plugged in. I was able to load the optimized bios settings and reboot. I then plugged in my USB Flash Drive with my operating system install. With 2 minutes, the computer turned off and then back on. I tried the front panel USB ports as well, but had the same issue. I then inserted a Windows 7 CD in the optical drive. Before Windows 7 even fully loaded, the computer shut down and then restarted again. Thinking it was the RAM, I re-configured it over and over and had the same problem. Thinking that it was power consumption, I switched my Liquid cooler with the stock fan. The install lasted a little bit longer, but still eventually turned off. Tried changing BIOS settings, and still had the same issue. I have 650 watts of power which SHOULD be more than enough for this, so I'm not sure that this is happening due to a lack of power. I know that it definitely is a hardware issue since the Windows CD and Flash Drive just worked on my laptop. What is causing this?
