Computer Starts But Turns Off After 5 Seconds

RE: Computer Starts But Turns Off After 5 Seconds
Personally, I would carefully check the CPU heatsink from the backside to make sure a pin did not pop up, assuming it is intel. If ok...

I would diconnect all the drives, all but one stick of ram and power on, it should go into bios. If it does, connect one drive at a time, power on, cd drives will still boot into bios. If it fails at any point of connecting drives then we need to discuss that. If it does not fail, pull the one stick of ram and put the other in to isolate a bad stick of ram. If it fails with all drives disconnected and one stick of ram, try the other ram stick to be sure or another known working stick. It then is bioled down to a bad psu or motherboard. You can check the psu voltages with a multi meter. Here is the link step by step on that. http://www.techrepublic.com/article/powe...ultimeter/
