Computer not starting up?
Hey guys. I just built my new computer, here are the specs:
-Pentium4, 2.8ghz, 800mhz FSB
-Asus P4P800S Motherboard
-Mushkin PC3200 512mb ram
-Geforce 4 Ti4200
So let me tell you the problem. I put my computer together, connected all the cables. I pressed the power button, and the computer started up for about 0.5seconds, then turned off and would not start again. I turned the power off, then back on(power supply, not front button), and the computer then did the same thing over;it started for half a second, then turned off. I proceeded to look for problems, and found out that my motherboard had space for 2 power cables, not one. This surprised me, because the last computers I had built all had one. I plugged in the second cable, but the computer only did the same thing. So, that is where I am. I looked through the mobo manual and it said that I need to plug in both or I could cause "severe" damage to my CPU and mobo.
Any help would be VERY appreciated!!!
