I just received a new computer case and assembled the computer. The computer does not boot and I don't believe the is a POST beep either. When I press the power button, the computer fans would spin ,and the LEDs would light up, but nothing would turn on. I would have to unplug the computer to shut it off. I then realized I forgot to plug in the 8-pin connection from the PSU. After I plugged that in, the fans would spin and the LEDs would light up, but only for a good second the shut down. I've tried just about everything and I need help please!

Computer Specs:
2.8 Ghz AMD Processor
600 Watt PSU
XFX R7770 GPU with Ghost Thermal Technology
ASRock Motherboard
8 GB of RAM with Heatsinks
Windows 7 Pro

Have you been able to get the computer to POST at all? Are all of the cables inside the computer connected?
