Default Automatic PC Shutdown

Hey friends, i got an assembled PC core 2 duo 2.93GHz, Gigabyte G31M-ES2L motherboard, since starting of this month, i am facing some problem with it. When i switch on the power & press the power button of CPU, it just blinks & then the PC turns off, but keyboard & mouse keep on glowing.

Please tell me what is the problem with it..

Regards
littlekiller

i think he means it shuts down within a few seconds of turning on. My pc can run for a good 10 mins before it overheats without a heatsink even on (i know this from troubleshooting CPUs).

i'm thinking dead/dying board.

Well its not the OS, its not getting that far. Ram would just hang it, not shut it down. Its either a dead psu or mobo.
