new motherboard problem
Help I have just installed a new gigabyte GA-81PE1000 +P4 3.0GH + 512 mb = new power supply, booted up OK ,set bios ok. Everything was detected and seemed to be working fine. Started to install Windows xp , got half way through install and system closed down. There is power to the MB but will not start, when 12 V ATX connector is unplugged CPU fan and on board chip fan start up.But when it is connected nothing happens.Any help would be appreciated.

GA-81PE1000 Motherboard 12v ATX Power
I have the same Problem. I'll doing something online,
and power goes off on me. I did what you did, The Same Damn Thing. It's not the power Supply Because I tried
other power supplys. It's either the Processer or the
Fricken motherboard is just plane Crap!. But most like
You bought a Crap.
Same thing happened with me... so I connected couple of Fans for installation purpose as while installing XP, it uses only CPU ... so it was getting hot.. check if its getting hot then... use some cooling mechanism for CPU...It may also work for u...
probably it's the ram or vga, try changing those first.
