    Default PC starting and stopping?

    Okay, so this is the first PC i've put together (ever), and i've got everything inside, wires and all, everything connected (most likely at the right place) and i turn the PC on, and that's where i get stuck. 15-20 seconds after i turn it on it just randomly turns off. I get nothing on my moniter, no BIOS, nothing. And at this point I'm thinking maybe it's the power source but i'm not sure so maybe you guys can help (im putting this topic in this section because my motherboard is a gigabyte)
    Here's the link to my configuration

    A good diagnostic tool would be a speaker connected on MB at this point. Check for beeps to get a (small) light about the problem.
    And you link is dead.

    No, no, not that one. A PC speaker I told you is the little one that beeps at power on POST, signaling errors like the one you got.
    There are two pin at the motherboard edge among with other pins to connect the power led, HD led, USB front extension and so on.
    Sorry can't tell you the precise location since I own a different MoBo so check your manual please.
    Just connect the little speaker to the correct pins and count which beeps and how many you got at failed boot.
