I am installing a new A7V8X motherboard. I am using Transcend DDR 333 memory CAS 2.5, Athlon XP 188+
The PC boots up, and I can enter the BIOS setttings. But after maybe 10 seconds, with or without making any changes, the PC switches itself off. I have tried many times, even booting without going into the BIOS, and each time the PC switches itself off after 10-15 seconds.

Cheers, your suggestion was spot on.
I rechecked the processsor fan, and it was not properly seated. After reseating, it now runs OK.
