cpu turns off right away

February 21, 2009 at 19:56:11
Specs: none
i had built a home made computer and i had put it together and when i push the power button it turns on and all lights light up and then after about 2 seconds it turns off but if i hold down the reset button it stays on untill i let it go. i dont belive it is a power source problem because i have already bought and tried 3 different power sources does anyone have any ideas on what to do that doesnt involve spending more money then i have already put into this thing?

Do you mean "Power supply?" Did you bench test all the components before installing the MOBO and connecting everything?
