Default computer shuts off after 5 seconds

I have a pc that is now shutting down after being on for about 5 seconds. It was working fine before I removed the processor and ram to try it in another computer for troubleshooting. Any Ideas?

I guess I should have looked at some similar threads before I posted a question. I took the recommendation of a reply to another question. The heat sink wasn't seated properly with thermal paste. Its fine now...
