Angry No start

Benn working with this board for about three hours now. Is a GYGABYTE GA-K8N51GMF-9. The dam thing is out of case. It will start for, maybe, a second and them went off. Change the psu 3 times (2 generics and one Themaltake 500w). One stick of PC-3200 512mb ram, HS&F is new Zalman 7000B, new AMD 3500+ cpu, ATI 6500 PCI-E vc and also use the on board video. Install uninstall everything at least 3 times. Any ideas would be very, very welcome.

Have you tried a different CPU? Usually when they start and shut off it will come down to a board or CPU..

Check jumpers. Do you have any of the case buttons hooked up? I got a board once that had a jumper across the pwr pins. It would fire up when I turned on the PSU and then shut down. Took me a few to realize that the pins were shorted. Go through the manual closely. Make sure you have addressed everything.

Got the Power SW and the reset buttons in place and have moved them all around the place just in case the manual is wrong. But I will chk them again. The CPU a brand new PIB but will try with 4200+ also new. I believe is the board witch is also "new". Anyone has experience with GYGABYTE RAM's?

So your being tested today! Smile, they like it when you smile at adversity.":O}

Start over from Zero. Do each thing according to plan. YOUR plan. If when you get to the end it still won't boot, throw a temper fit. You see it's all in the timing.

Then RMA the SOB, and come here for the symphathy your fate has earned you.

You can also eliminate the buttons from the equation. Take all the leads off the headers. You only have to short the psw header for a second with a small screwdriver to start it up. If there's a problem with the switch this will eliminate it.

I once had an ABIT board that wouldn't start in the same way; it turned out to be the reset switch was bad. Replacing it in the end solved the problem.

I guess I did not realize. What can we do to apologize for such an act?

Thanks for the support. I'm OK with this. I will start all over (again) and if it doesn't work I'll take the hammer back from Sam and ... RMA the dam thing. Can't denied that It was fun, at least that how I feel today.
