    Hello All,

    Just assembled a computer with an P4 3.0 Processor, ASUS PSP800 Mainboard, 1 Gig DDR, ATI RADEON 9250 AGP Video, Enermax ATX2 Power supply with the new 24 Pin ATX Connector.

    Problem is that the computer shuts off by itself every now and then whether in DOS mode or Win XP Mode. It even shuts off while on the BIOS setup Screen!!

    I am going crazy trying to troubleshoot. This must bethe 30thcomputer I assembled and never had this problem before.

    Please help :confused:

    Shuts off at the BIOS? Sounds like a hardware problem. Does it shut off or shut down and reboot?

    I'll suggest the same thing I always suggest at this stage: pull the motherboard out of the case and place it on some cardboard and attach only what is needed to boot up and test from there (e.g., mb, cpu + fan, ram, hd, video) and nothing else.

    Thanks. I did found what the problem is and here's what I found:

    The two memory chips did not want to exist together. Changed one and all is fine.
