Just bought a new rig, specs as follows:

-ASUS P5LD2 Deluxe Socket T (LGA 775) Intel 945P ATX Intel Motherboard
-Windows XP Professional
-4 gig DDR2 240 pin SDRAM
-3D Fuzion Geforce 7800GTX 3DFW78256GTX Video Card
-Western Digital Caviar RE2 WD4000YR 400GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache Serial ATA150 RAID
-Intel Pentium D 830 800MHz FSB LGA 775 Dual Core, EM64T Processor

I've checked it out and have found no compatibility issues so I'm especially stumped on the problem at hand.

I hit the power button and the computer starts up fine, ASUS screen comes up, I can hit Delete to enter bios, but after about 15 seconds, (or shorter the more I try to start it up) it will shut down.

I get one beep from my motherboard before the ASUS screen, which my manual says could be one of the following issues,

Keyboard controller error,
Refresh Time error,
No master drive detected.

Everything is set up correctly and the computer acts as if it will start up fine, just, doesnt.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Given the time factor (shorter the more you try) I would say it's overheating of the CPU.

Is the heatsink/fan unit correctly mounted, and thermal paste/pad applied?

I would check that everything is seated correctly especially the heat sink and fan also check to see if the mobo is shorting on the case anywhere, if this doesn't work I would remove the mobo from the case onto some cardboard and try a minimal boot
