DIY - 2 Power issue?
on Oct 13, 2005 at 6:50:46 pm

I just finished buying all the pieces for the DIY 2 project. I started it up and within 20 seconds of it being on it shuts down... the motherboard LED light stays on... I don't know what the problem is. Anyone got any ideas??

if you think it is the power supply: How much is your wattage? .. I assume you bought one 420 or higher... **what is your amp for your 12 volt? anthing under 15 makes the power supply useless. I suggest 18 or higher for any CPUs over 3.2Ghz or dual CPUs.

be sure your BIOS is setup as default.
you might have a bad memory. ( I doubt it, unless you bought cheap generic)

I have the exact set up as the DIY 2 and as the bios start to load thats when the power goes out but the memory does show up so I know its not that.

yes but they don't mention the specific power supply... just the model case to get. PLEASE tell me what the amp is under 12v for your power supply

there should be a volt/ amp grid on the side of the power supply (that grid is for all the cables out.) look under 12v and what is the amp?
