Exclamation Please help!

I just bought an MSI Neo V motherboard yesterday to replace my spoilt one and fixed it in just now. When i plugged in the power cable and switched on my com, the com powers up for bout 1 second before powering down again almost immediately. I've refixed all my hardware on the motherboard but the problem still persists. Is this a fixing issue or is the motherboard spoilt? Pls help!

Default Re: Please help!

since noone has responded ill try but i don't know much but here it goes

1. make sure that the jumpers are placed correctly
2. the cables from the case front are connected properly
3. the psu is set correctly (115 and 230) i think, but it depends on where you live and i don't remember which is which
4. maybe the ram is not compatible with the new MOBO
5. maybe the grounding??? or other connections

thats all i can think of
good luch
