Default Someone help?

Alright so I just finished building my pc and I've got a problem.

When ever I plug in the power cord, and I press the power button, the fans and everything will spin for about a second and shut off.

There is power in the mobo after they shut off because a red power led and a red reset led are lit up.

I'm thinking about just re-building again so I can do better wire management.

Can someone help me?

Nice guide. Another thing to check with a new build is to ensure all of your motherboard standoffs are installed correctly to ensure nothing is grounding your board.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

I do not accept support questions via PM
