Default My pc won't boot

My PC won't boot, the RAM is okey, the HD is okey, when i turn it ON, it's just a matter of seconds then the power goes off, i think its the power supply or the motherboard or the Processor. Any comment?

Hello,

How far does it go? Do you see anything on screen? Do you hear any beeps?

When you turn the PC on, check to to if the CPU heatsink is seated properly and that the CPU heatsink fan is spinning.

Could be a overheating issue eg fan on cpu as Alvin.C said check the heatsink fan. Monitor how far it goes into bootup...same time everytime..
Do you overclock ?

Does it get far enough to give you the option of hitting F2 to enter setup?

any chance you've been fiddling with the Bios settings? simply changing a chipset setting from normal to aggressive can f*** things up.
