    I've been having some computer problems awhile back, my computer would randomly shut off, and then it refused to turn on. It wasn't a processor nor power supply problem as my brother tried my processor on his computer and it worked, and his power supply on my computer and nothing happened. So, I bought a new motherboard the other day, as stated before a Gigabye 865PE. I installed it correctly, nothing is missing or in the wrong slot, yet when I turn on the power.. it shuts off at a random time during the booting sequence. Sometimes it will not give me a single beep, sometimes it'll beep once. It turns off during the memory check sequence, sometimes during the harddrive scanning, and sometimes right before Windows would normally load up. It refuses to stay on for more than 20 seconds, and there's absolutely no pattern in when it shuts off. Again, my power supply and processor and memory all work fine, and i've reseated the memory to all slots and tested it on another computer. The motherboard is brand new, unopened, I highly doubt that I bought two defunct motherboards in a row... any solutions?
