I have just put together a new PC, and when I turn on the power switch, the fans and lights come on for a moment (less than 2 seconds) and then everything shuts off. Thought it was a bad power supply so I returned it and got another one, but it does the same thing. Checked all the wiring and re-seated everything 3 or 4 times with the same result. Everything seems tight and secure. I have all the peripherals disconnected (HD, DVD, extra lights and fans) but still no change. The major components are as follows: Core 2 Duo E6600, 4x1GB Patriot DDR2 800 SDRAM, Thermaltake 430W PSU, Intel P965 MOBO, GeForce 8600GTS 256MB video card. Any Ideas? I'm not thrilled about sending all the components back for replacements if they are okay.
