I have an ASUS CG5270 desktop PC with a P5QL MB, Intel Q8300 Quad CPU, 8GB RAM, using the integrated graphics and audio.  The CPU and case fans startup on boot, but after 5 sec they shutdown for 1-2 sec and then restart and then stay on.  However, during this entire process there is absolutely nothing that appears on the monitor.  I have checked the monitor.  I have replaced the motherboard and the same thing happens; I have replaced the CPU and the same thing happens; I have replaced the HDD and the same thing happens; I have replaced the Power Supply and the same thing happens; ; I have replaced the RAM and the same thing happens; I have pulled the CMOS battery and moved jumpers on the CLRTC jumper.  I have installed an operating PCI-e Graphics card and the same thing happens.  I am at my wits end, can someone please help me.

I take it that this is a fresh build ?  Is this a kit ? It almost sounds like there is not enough power. What size of a psu are you using ? As far as your specs can you be a little more specific ? Since this post is almost a week old have you since found the problem ?
