|I just moved a build from an antec p180b to a cooler master storm sniper, and when I turn on the machine is only runs for about 15-30 seconds. When I turn it only again, it will only stay on for 2-3 seconds. After a minute or so, it returns to the 15-30 seconds of life. |
I was able to access the BIOS and Windows would start to load, and their is no consistent point of failure. I removed one peripheral (an esata connection port in the back) and everything else is essentially the same.
What steps should I do to troubleshoot this? All the parts worked fine before the move. I was also careful to prevent static discharge, but didn't wear a bracelet. Could this have caused a problem? Also, I'm not sure if the case fans are hooked up correctly (the back plate and cpu fan do spin just fine). The power supply fan also spins fine.
There are also lights on the motherboard that vary from yellow to orange to green...
