  1. Ok so i start my computer and suddently it turns off. I turn it on again and then a few mins later it turns off. I do it again and does the same, but then it wouldnt turn on again. I notice the light on my abit kn8 ulltra mobo isnt on anymore so i figure no power is goin to it. I go out and buy a new 650 watt antec psu and install it. The mobo now has power but when i boot the comp i can only see the first boot screen that just says ABIT and processor types in corner. It doesnt go any farther then that. I'm pretty sure i have everything plugged in, i felt the hdds and can feel vibrations so i know there running. Please help this is driving me crazy. Thank you!

    mobo - Abit KN8 Ultra NF4U 939
    PSU (old) atrix 500 watt, (new) antec 650 watt
    CPU - athlon 4000 64
    vid card - some BFG 7800

    umm this thread can close for some reason when i took out some of my ram my computer fixed itself thanks anyway.

    Sounds to me that you have a "PARITY" issue with your RAM.
    I would also check your temp threshold's and bump them up slightly.
    I hope this helps.
