My 11-year old daughter and I built her first PC today, but now that all the components are in place, the machine will only turn on for a second then it turns off right away.
Possibly Relevant Specs:
- Biostar TP55 ATX Motherboard
- Intel i3-560
- Apevia X-Cruiser 2 Case
- Antec Basiq 550W Power Supply
I have re-checked all connections, and tested the power supply independently. Everything seems to be fine. The Biostar motherboard makes mention of its "CPU Savior" capabilities, so I made sure the heat-sink is making conta11-oct with the processor (it is), cleared the CMOS, and powered up again only to experience the same issue.
Is the CPU Savior actually the issue? If so, why does it think my heat sink isn't making contact when it definitely is? Is there a way to disable that capability? Or could something else be the issue here?
