did you build it? if you did i had the same problem with mine after i built it. the mobo was touching the metal on the case and grounding out. If that is the problem then you need to find something to elevate it so it wont touch the bottom of the case. I hope this helps.

Sounds more like a grounding problem to me. Make sure nothing is touching something it shouldn't be...

could be an improperly seated card, ram or misc, aka bad connection.

Im thinking its shorting out on something. A improply seated card wouldnt be that sensitive.

check no power connectors have stripped wires that are touching the case. (possibly a fan wire, or maybe hd.) if so, get the offending wire replaced.

lol well im thinkin maybe you shouldnt "really hit it". i would have said grounding as well because it would defy logic that it could be the seating of the hardware if it will boot without being reseated.
