Ok, I hook up my comp with all the necessary cords and cables. I press the power button and my comp turns on.....for about 5 seconds. It then turns right back off. I have an AMD Athlon 1500 cpu with a motherboard that can handle it. It has worked fine before, but when i turned it off to clean it, when i tried to turn it back on....BOOM, it didnt work!!!! I even went as far to try an old cpu (750 duron), and it WORKED!!! Im not sure whats wrong. Hope u guys can help me out.

Make sure the CPU, memory, add-on cards, power connectors and ribbon cables are well seated/attached. Also make sure that the CPU fan is well attached (may be heat related)

Are you getting any beep codes?
