So i boot my computer, everything boots, then the system immediately shuts down after around 3-5 seconds, i tried a few differrent power supplies, the power supply didn't seem to be the problem, i tried resetting the ram, that also didn't seem to be the problem.

I run a ABIT AN8 mobo, AMD 4400+, 2gb ram

When i boot, it won't even load a screen, the computer immediately shuts off? sounds like a hardware issue, anyone have this problem, or know how to fix it?

You seem competent to open the case and work inside,

so I'd suggest you selectively try removing various non-essential cards and devices from your system

in case one of them is causing the problem.

For example, if your network connection is on a card, try removing it and booting.

Same with a modem card.

Try disconnecting a floppy drive, CD/DVD drive, etc.

This would help remove some possibilities even if it doesn't determine the problem.

Please let us know, OK?


I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!

Can you boot from a CD?
