Default Problems with computer

I have built a new computer and everytime i tap it or it is moved it shuts off and i have remove the motherboard and everything on it and start from scratch, taking the motherboard out and then putting everything back on the motherboard. Samething over and over, i think it could be a wire or something touching the motherboard and it is causing it to power off. Please help me.

Make sure everything is in securely, make sure the MoBo bolts are tight, and maybe get some wire ties to move them out of the way to avoid them touching anything?

Grounding problems are the only thing I can think of.
