Im in the process of building a computer (my first) anyways Im running into all sorts of problems. At the moment I cannot power up the computer. I checked several times the case leads (speakers, power, hdd, led) all are as they should be however When I power up the computer runs maybe 10 seconds before shutting down. I power up again this time it powers up for maybe 5 seconds, I try again then maybe 1 second. Any ideas??? checked the case open jumper and its where it should be.... I have a gigabyte motherboard 8Nxp :confused:

Depends on the CPU, but yes, it's possible. Some have built in protection which triggers a shutdown when it reaches a specific temp. Depends which CPU you have.

Also, if the heatsink fan isn't plugged into the motherboard, the BIOS may be set to shutdown when it detects no fan.
