Solved PC able to get to splash screen, then shuts down.

October 19, 2013 at 20:45:47
Specs: Windows 32bit
My PC, which I recently replaced my old motherboard and PSU with a Corsair CX600 and a ASRock Z75 Pro3. The system fans spin, cpu fan included, but the system shuts off after a few seconds of being on the ASRock splash screen. Help please?

RAM: Corsair 2x4GB (Although one broke.) 1600MHz
CPU: Intel i3 something, I at least know its compatible with the motherboard
GPU: EVGA GTX650
HDD: Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200.12

UPDATE: Able to get to a screen which says "UEFI Defaults have been loaded. Press F2 or DEL to run setup Press F1 to continue"

Only problem is, choosing either option makes the computer shut down.

If you can run in the BIOS for as long as you want but you can't boot in Windows it is because your hardware is too different.

What type of Windows installation do you have? If Windows 7 originally came pre-installed on an OEM computer like HP, emachines, etc., then you may not get Windows to run on the new motherboard.

That type of Windows license is called an SLP and is limited to the original hardware.

Try booting without the hard drive connected to the power or motherboard to see if you can then enter the setup screens.

You may have not assembled correctly.

Which version of Windows are you running?

Were you getting the same issue with the previous motherboard and PSU?

Have the new motherboard and PSU ever worked for you?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Win 7, and yes, it boots without the hard drive.

EDIT: Shuts off as soon as I press F1 or F2

EDIT 2: Didn't see other message. I committed a sin and didnt testbench (or whatever its called) my parts. The old motherbord and PSU worked fine, but the old PSU is horrible and the old motherboard isnt compatible with my new PSU

Sounds about right, just to be sure, read temperatures in BIOS, if the CPU temp is high in BIOS (above 30 something in C, especially if it is constantly climbing (depending on CPU shut down will probably be around 70C +/-)), you might not have used new thermal compound or applied it correctly.
