Hi,

I've just bought a component bundle (AMD Athlon 64 X2 7550 Bundle including AMD Athlon 64 X2 7550 AMD Processor, Asrock AM2+ N68C-S UCC mATX Motherboard and Heatsink and Fan), I'm using a G7 Power extreme 680W PSU but the power just keeps cutting out. I can't even get it to stay on past the first few installation screens when trying to instal Windows XP pro. I've checked all the conncetions and re sited the fan on the processor with no luck. Would anyone be able to give me any suggestions. I'm a bit of an old fart but have built a few pcs from scratch but never had any problems like this. Cheers in advance :hysterical: :hysterical:

Could you tell about your Computer Specs on your next post?
And does your Computer restarted or Hangs/Freeze or shutdown?
When you tried instaling Windows and the problem happens. Could you check does it happens on same time or not not?

:guitar: Take me to a place where time is frozen
You don't have to close your eyes to dream :busy:
You can find escape inside this moment :smash:
And I will follow  :whistle:

Take it apart...start from scratch. Connect the PSU and motherboard properly...install 1 RAM module. Speaking of RAM, why is there no mention of it? What RAM is installed?

Take a look at some of the comments/topics at http://www.google.com/search?q=+G7+Power+extreme+680W+&sourceid=ie7&rls=com.microsoft:en-us:IE-ContextMenu&ie=&oe=&rlz=1I7ADFA_en#sclient=psy&hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-us%3AIE-ContextMenu&rlz=1I7ADFA_en&source=hp&q=G7+Power+extreme+680W+PSU+shuts+off&pbx=1&oq=G7+Power+extreme+680W+PSU+shuts+off&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=22828l31063l0l32203l14l13l0l0l0l0l781l4499l2-4.4.3.0.1l12l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=7d86af9665111856&biw=1440&bih=699 .

There may be something to those negative comments about the PSU.

The one thing I would double-check...is that you have the main PSU leads to the motherboard...properly connected.

Did you follow the directions provided...for installing the heatsink/fan on the CPU?
