The power shuts off before I can finish loading windows.Any ideas?
I have checked all of the power connectors and they seem fine.
TIA Jim

The fan on the cpu works.Do you think it might be a heat issue?

often when a heat sink is not well mounted on the CPU, the computer will shutdown before it over heats.

remove the hard drive and turn the computer on and let it sit for a several minutes, if it shuts down it is probably a heat sink issue.
some BIOS have a monitor of temperature, so you can look and see if it is rising to high.
