    unplug the power cord and take out the cmos battery and wait 10mins, then place the cmos battery back and plug the power cord back.

    Could be the PSU is underpowered for your system, something is loose, dust or debris is in a connection, or your PSU is faulty.

    Check the mobo manuel to insure that the mobo jumpers are in the correct configuration for that setup and that all jumpers are present.(theve been known to fall off during shipping and handeling!)

    to be honest, i don't get what you mean. Does it boot past post or does it just boot no post and then shuts off? if it boot past post were does it get to before shutting off?
