  1. ASUS A7V600-X MB
    AMD Athlon XP 2600+ (FSB 333MHz)
    512MB PC3200 Mushkin


    I have tried three different PowerSupplies. Every time the computer will power on for about 2 seconds then shut off. Could it be I'm using PC3200? I don't have any PC2700 to test with. Motherboard is brand new, CPU works in another computer. Any suggestions?

    Lower Memory & Other Timings in BIOS

    Lower the memory timings in the BIOS, check the voltage values, and make sure the FSB or AGP is not being overclocked.

    Check for false contacts between mobo and the mobo-studs.
    Check the small wires from the front-panel to the mobo.
    Start with 1 stick memory, hd and videocard and try to boot into BIOS.
    Add new items one at a time and try booting after each.
