Default Re: computer turns off after turned on

well tore 2 computers down to bare bones and tested my parts
this is what i found out
my ram works
my power supply works

i cant guarantee this 100% because i did not have a monitor hooked up but the computer started up and stayed on when i had my power source and ram inside of it.

so im thinking the problem is ether the cpu or the mobo
last time my friend bought something from this store he had a prob with the mobo before >.<

and i know i didn't connect anything wrong
to get the cpu fan to start 3 things had to be plugged in
the 20 pin power cable and the 4pin atx cable
with those connected in the working pc the processor started and stayed on

with my mobo it did not

so what do you guys think mother board or cpu?

but anyway im taking my pc to the store tomarrow and getting em replace the parts.
