    Give us specs on the PC. Mobo, CPU, memory, Power supply, etc. Could just be the combination of parts you are using (ie. power supply not putting out enough power)

    Leinad123, why did you do a bump after a minute from last post? disconnect all cables from drives. remove all cards & ram except for videocard & 1 stick of ram. try the board out of the case. is all power connectors for motherboard connected?
