Okay so my friend ordered parts for a new computer, and we were like "yay! parts!" and proceeded to assemble the thing. We hit the power button, and the thing turned on, and shut off, turned on, shut off, etc etc. So we eventually determined the motherboard was dead. We sent it back to Newegg, and they promptly sent us ANOTHER one. It did the exact same thing. So we're on try number 3, and we're paranoid that somehow between the 2 of us, we must be doing something wrong. Is there something I'm missing that could be causing this problem to occur again and again? We've tested the 3rd motherboard without putting it in the case we plan to use, and it appears to work. We don't want to f*ck this one up. The reason I think something may be wrong with the way we're putting it in the case is because the case is rather odd (in comparison to what I've seen...) in that instead of having those little screw-in studs / standoffs that are gold-ish in color (usually), it has raised portions of the tray (basically little bumps with screw holes). The case is a XION AXP100-001BK RT. I don't get what we could be doing wrong... we were both trained in school for this stuff... myself more hardware and her more software... but I figure it can't help to ask at this point. You can see the odd little raised sections of the tray (which are fairly common on lots of cases these days except I've never dealt with them personally...) here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811208027 in the pictures.
