I need some help, please. I built my own computer a long time ago so I know it works fine.

I bought a new case, and after transfering everything to the new case, the computer does not work. I hit the power button, and the psu starts up and all the LEDS come on. I can hear everythig booting up, but there is nothing on my monitor. It also sounds like the PC is starting up, then 5 seconds later, starting again, over and over.

Any suggestions?

Two things. Either your Motherboard is grounding on the case (get some nylon spacers), OR you have a bad Power Supply. I'm leaning more towards your board grounding out.

Thank you. I took everything apart and looked under the mobo. The chemming came with these gold risors. My old case had some plastic/vinyl risors. Put them up and everything works. Thanks again.
