I just RMA'ed my mobo but still getting these re-occuring problems


I have the side of the chassis off and I can see that when I press the chassis on/off switch to power on (there is a power on delay), the cpu and chassis fans spin up, come to a stop and about 1-2s later come back on repeat.... I press the power button and it sound like it wants to start up but it turns off right away. You push it again and it does the same thing....Nothing comes up on the screen ; everything seems to run normally if i leave the computer unpluged over night but then after 1-15min of use it shuts down....

I had the MOBO RMA'ed i still dont know whats up because i thought that was the problem (i've had this comp for a little over a year and also this problem has occured before even when i first built it!)

The setup i have is
520W PSU Crosair
2.4 Dual Core INTEL
8800GT GFX Card
GiGabyte MOBO

thx for your help

You have already replaced the motherboard I would suspect A short between the motherboard and the case. Or a faulty power supply next. Make sure the motherboard is sitting properly on the stand offs between it and the case. To make sure you can try powering up the motherboard on wooden table with all the components installed.

The antec should be ok as long as there is nothing wrong with it. Does your motherboard have on board video? If it does try and get the motherboard to post with only the processor and memory installed using the on board video. If that doesnt work try without the Processor. The computer wont completly boot but it should try and post and fail due to the removed processor. If it does post and fail then the processor is the problem. If it doesnt post replace the processor and try without the memory.
