Tried this and still got same problem. Power keeps cycling off and on. All I have connected is these.

Unhook the hard drive, and only use 1 ram stick.
You need more than a few minutes to clear the cmos by battery removal, more than an hour
Try using the cmos jumper instead of the battery, 3 littlew pins with a jumper.
Tried this and didn't work
I removed the battery for several hours, even though the motherboard manual said only needed 30 seconds.
I'm beginning to hope that it just may be a bad PSU, but unfortunately I don't have a multimeter to check the voltages coming out *sigh*
I guess that would be my next step, yes?
Edit: I contacted Altex
where I bought the PSU and they can test the PSU.
