Newly built PC shuts down on bootup

By bob2345

  1. I am building a PC, my first, and all went well on the installation. The CPU (Intel Quad 6700), mobo (nForce 680iLT), memory (2 gig), hard drive (Hitachi SATA), and DVD were all part of a "kit" from TigerDirect.

    When I turn it on, after it has been sitting for a while, it will last about 35 seconds and get to bios configuration okay, but then shuts down. If I turn it back on as soon as it shuts off, it lasts 10, 8, 7, 6 secs progressively. I then waited a minute and did it again and it lasted 22 and 9 secs in successive attempts.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks
