Brand New - Wont Boot

by jeeps71 / August 31, 2007 6:07 AM PDT

I jus bought the following;

Abit IP35
Intel Dual Core 1.6
GE Force 7600GT
(2) WD 400 Sata drives
1) Sony DVD-RW
2 Gigs Patriot 800 RAM

I've read the manual twice. The PC starts up for about three seconds, then shuts off, then by itself starts agian, but nothing ever happens. I've tried removing everything but the CPU with the same results. I've reset the bios too. Any ideas?

lacks an OS. Tell more on that. Without an OS there's not much to do.

Also tell about:
- the PSU
- the CPU cooler and the heat paste applied
- possible beeps you here or LED's that pop up (if error LED's) or don't pop up (if status-OK LED's)
