|I am having a similar issue as to that reported over here: http://www.computing.net/answers/ha...|
Computer turns on for maybe one second, then turns off for 2-3 seconds, and then it turns on for another second and so on. This is a custom built computer (not by me) and had been working for a couple of years before this started to happen.
Here are the build parts (I'm doing the best I can by looking):
PSU - 700W Thermalatake toughpower
Memory: 4GB (2x2GB) DDR2 Corsair XMS2
MB: MSI MS-7529
CPU: Unsure as I haven't taken the heatsink off since I don't have any paste that I can put it back on with right now.
There's also a video card in there but I had taken it out for all of my testing.
Here are a couple of things:
There is a 4-pin connector that is close to the cpu from the power-supply (I'm sorry as I don't know what this is called) that if I unplug it, the fans and everything power on and stay powered on but there is no output to my monitor.
If I plug that back in and take out both memory modules, I get the same thing (everything stays powered on but no output to monitor).
I don't really have any parts or anything that I can test with this build so I'm trying to find out what people's thoughts are as to what would be causing this issue based off of what I've stated. Let me know if you need any more information.
