    Default start up problems?

    Ok, so I just installed a new processor and motherboard. Everything went fine till startup. Then I realized the motherboard was shorting out on the case. So, that was fixed. And finally the Computer starts up...but shuts down almost immediately after. So can anyone tell me what the problem is?

    Might have blown a circuit somewhere on the board but try the PSU in another system if able.

    Thanks for the suggestion, though I did still have the same problem as before. But since then I have determined that the motherboard is still shoting out on the case. I just have to find out where.

    The most likely cause would be a standoff in the case that is improperly positioned for your new MB. Make sure there are no standoffs in there that you aren't using
