Computer starts: for about 3 seconds
Hey guys, i went ahead and built my system tonight, but I need some help.
Everythings all plugged in, the mobo's screwed down, snug, but not hard.
I hit the power button and it only runs for about 3 seconds. All the fans, heatsink, and led's work.
I think it just might be shorting out against the case though, so would placing a non conducting material under the mobo help me out? I've had this happen to me before( on a different motherboard ), and I'm hoping the same solution works here.
For reference its an asus p5b board.
Hopefully some of you guys can help me.
I built the entire system on a hardwood floor, so I dont think I fried anything, my best guess is the boards shorting out. What do you think?
