Hi, I need some computer help.
Background: I recently purchased a new motherboard and AMD XP chip. When I tried installing both into a new case/powersupply combo, it would not start up when I would hit the power button. I checked to make sure that all jumpers/settings were correct, but still nothing would happen. I finally took the motherboard and put it into another case with a different power supply, and the board would start up.
Because I figured that the issue was with the power supply, I returned the case/PS (it was a combo), and purchased a new Antec case/PS combo (350 W). I tried installing the board into that case, and now the board will boot, but after two seconds, it dies. I tried putting it into the other case, and I am having the same problem with that (when just the other day, it was working). I tried taking the original MB that was in the 2nd case, and putting it in the new Antec case, and now that board is also having the same problem (powers on for 2-3 seconds, and then dies). Did I totally screw up both of my motherboards? What do you guys think the problem may be?
