I built a custom PC buying parts from Fry's Electronics. I plugged everything up and now the PC won't boot. At first nothing will happen at all. plugged everything up; stuck in the power cable; and pressed the on button...no go. Nothing lights up, no fans turn on, nothing. After rechecking all the wires and making sure everything was connected right I tried booting it again. This time it does boot, but only for a millisecond (note: it booted when I plugged the power cable in, not by pressing the on button on the front side of the computer). All the light flash on and the fans start to spin, but then it dies. It does this everytime I plug in the power cable or turn on the switch to the power supply. Pressing the on button on the front of the case does nothing.
