Computer automatically turns on then off
Hello. Here is my problem.
I recently bought a new psu. So i was in the process of changing it. I only plugged 1 hd and my gfx card to make sure everything was ok. So i set the switch on the new psu to the power position., as soon as I set it up to on. The computer fans started like they when my computer is booting then, a second later it turns off. When i tried pressing the power switch nothing happenned. So i switched back to my old psu, same thing happens. Ive double checked every connector on my mobo and they re in their right spot. Ive also tried with different ram bars to see if they wre faulty, same thing happens. Ive also removed my bios battery to see if it would help, nothong.... So im not sure whats left to do.. Can anyone enlight me? Thanks
sorry about my english skills it aint my main language

It sounds like the PSU's safeguard against leakage has tripped. There may be problem with the mainboard.

Is the machine a "mass produced" machine such as Dell, Gateway, EMachines, etc. If so, post the exact make and model of the machine since there are known problems with certain machines.
