Computer won't boot for more then 3 seconds
Posted on 2011-09-14
Just built my friend a pc a little while back I've done almost everything I can think of.
He is running
2x gtx 460s
16 gb of gskil ripjaw
Amd phenomx4 black edit.
And a 600 w psu
at first we smelt a burning smell from the inside of the case so we un hooked everything and decided that it was coming from the main board by the CPU. We sent the mother board and CPU back to new egg they sent a bran new motherboard but the same CPU witch made me believe that the CPU was fine. I hooked everything back up and it wouldn't turn on for more then 5 seconds or even run bios . So I looked up some stuff and some people recommend a higher watt power supply so I got s 1000w psu now it Is doing the same thing I am running out of options ideas and money. Please help.
