Hi first time poster here, and I've just completed construction of my new rig, but I'm having trouble getting it to boot. I jump start the computer and the CPU fan and Case fan spin for around 5 seconds then the entire system turns off. Specs are:
CPU= AMD x2 4000+
MBO= Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe
RAM= 2x Kingston 1gb DDR2
GFX = 8600GTS
Case is as Thermaltake Matrix with the default PSU still in use.

From the look of it im leaning towards a PSU issue as its only a 430W PSU. Is there anyway to test before I purchase a new PSU? Any help or insight is much appreciated.

I'm thinking it's more likely a mobo issue than PSU. A 430W should be fine for that rig. Do you get any beeps before it all goes off?

if you installed the cpu and heatsink yourself you might wanna double check the amount of thermal grease you applied. And check all the motherboard standoffs.

good luck

No beeps, but I'm not sure if thats because there isn't a problem or if the problem is in the part that I'm plugging the speaker into, because I can't use the power switch on my case to start the PC only a manual jump start.

Reinstalled the CPU/heatsink and there's plenty of thermal paste. Any other ideas?
