Just recieved my dream system tonight, and guess what, I can't get it started. I plugged in the monitor, keyboard, mouse, everything is hooked up and ready to go. Hit the power button, it looks like it checks all the drives and card reader and such, the MSI logo for the mother board comes on the monitor, and then POOF, the cpu shuts down, it runs for maybe 15 seconds. After it shuts down the monitor says to check it's connection, I tried both monitor ports on the video card. The computer is custom from Cyber Power, with a MSI Diamond motherboard, Nvidia GE7800 GT video card, intel Pentium D 830 dual core, with 2 GBS of 667mhz Ram, a Beast 680 watt power supply and a Maxtor 300gb hard-drive. The fans are running. Tech support has gone home for the day. Any ideas? I feel like a kid with his nose pressed against the glass at a candy store, I got a dollar, but the store's closed.
