I'm hoping somebody can help me. I've compiled the following components over the last 6mth and have just finished putting it together, however I'm having a few problems diagnosing a problem that I'm unable to resolve after 2 days.
|SILVERSTONE LASCALA SST-LC16M Black Aluminum/Steel ATX Desktop Case
|Intel Core 2 Duo E8400, 3.00GHz
|Samsung 500GB 7200rpm SATA hard drive
|Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3R (newer version 45nm capable)
|Corsair DDR2-800 Dual Channel Kit 240-Pin 2x 1GB
|Hauppauge PVR150MCE PCI TV Tuner
After pushing the power button both the power and HDD led lights light up and the case fan briefly starts (1-2sec) and it appears the CPU fan also tries to spin but doesn't. All power then disappears and the computer repeats this process every 5 sec until I turn it off.
Any help appreciated because I've been trying to isolate the problem, I know it's not the power supply (works fine in another computer), it might be my wiring maybe, or maybe the MOBO is stuffed. It's still under warranty, however I really need to rule everything else out before going down this track.
If I can't resolve this can somebody recommend a good place in Christchurch where I can take it without being ripped off!
Any help appreciated.
