  1. Hello,
    Problem - Turning the power on will result in a restart within the first 3 seconds, then it will load up to the bios splash screen before it restarts and repeats the process of Short time restart then longer time restart.
    At the bios splash screen i am unable to access the bios in any fashion.
    In terms of bios settings none have been changed ever since getting the system(april 2011).

    Some things i tried were using single ram stick with both of them.

    Unplugged mouse/keyboard/optical drives.

    Using a different power cord from psu to hdd

    Things i have not done include taking out sound/gpu/cpu.

    Are you able to attempt to boot without a hdd installed, would this have adverse effects if i tried to turn it on without one. What are the core components that must be in to start up a PC.

    Specs
    mobo - gigabyte p67a ud3r - b3
    CPU - Intel i5 2500
    GPU - gigabyte 460 SOC
    RAM - Gskill ripjaw 2x4gb
    HDD - wd cavier black 1tb.

    If there is any other information i can give let me know
