Hi, It's me again... Sad

My PC as new is...

Asus P5N32 SLi-Deluxe
P4 630 3.0ghz with HT
2gb DDR2 Geil ram w/ heat spreaders.
Leadtek 7800GT
NEC 4570 DVD-RW
160 GB Maxtor IDE (from my old pc, has data on it. but cannot reformat as the system powers off)
Tagan TG530-U22 530w (2force series)

Ok my old PSU was a Hiper Type-R modular 580w. It didn't have an 8pin atx 12v connection which the motherboard required. Hence I thought that was the reason it was powering off. I replaced the PSU, and go through the motions. And it powers off Sad At one stage I got beeps (with the hiper psu tagan one is the replacement), it was beep after beep and it just went on continuosly. Not one long beep but single beeps 1 after the other.

So hearing them I replaced the psu. I am aware (I think) that those beeps mean psu or mobo problem. Now I do not get beeps anymore. So what should I do. I have checked all connections etc, and would rather have some advice as to fixing the problem before I take it into a computer shop.

This has bugged me for ages, any help is appreciated.

Thanks
Colin

Did you look up the beep codes ?  http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/amibeep.htm
Faulty memory and a bad video card will also give you beep codes.

How far into the boot up process are you getting before it powers down? Is it powering down completely or rebooting?
