My home-built computer will now no longer stay on after a few seconds when both the CPU and GPU are plugged in. I built it a few weeks ago and it's been fine until now. I opened the case today to make sure the graphics card was installed correctly and when I put it all back together, this happened.
Here are my specs: 585W Power Supply Intel Core 2 Duo 2.8GHz CPU XFX nVidia 9800 GT GPU 4 GB RAM
Right, when it's not on the board, then it does not shut down. Likewise, if the card is on the board and plugged in, and the CPU is unplugged, it also stays on. I do not have onboard video or another card.
