    Wonder if anyone has any suggestions. I've been building computers for a couple years now for fam and friends but haven't built one in a while (been using a laptop and its no fun keeping up on the latest hardware when you can't use it)...

    Building one now for my brother with the following:

    Asus Terminator K7 DDR Barebones System
    AMD Athlon XP 2400+ CPU
    768 MB of Viking DDR PC2100 RAM
    60 GB Maxtor Hard Drive

    I installed everything and try to boot up, the system turns on long enough to get into the BIOS menu and let shuts down. If I try to turn in back on within an hour or so, it doesn't even get that far. The system is booting from a completely cold state, so I doubt its a over heating issue. Did notice in the hardware monitor section of BIOS that the CPU fan was running "out of range" faster than it should have I guess.

    Any suggestions?? Bad motherboard?

    Help!!

    I'm sure that LeeJend will chip in, but basically break it down to the minimal parts, boot, add next part, boot, repeat.
