    power restart cycle

    hi all,
    I have a gigabyte motherboard ga-ep45-dq6 with an intel quad core processor.
    when I press the power button the computer starts up and the fans run but wirhin seconds it turns itself off and restarts itself in a continuous cycle.

    Can anybody help please.

    Try taking all the ram out but one stick.

    Did it used to run and this just start or it this a new build?

    If this is a new problem, did anything changed just before this happened?

    thanks brian,
    have already taken out memory as suggested, this was a new build six monhs ago worked perfectly well. i have just had the machine apart to install an internal card reader.

    i have removed the card reader and internal usb port..but still same problem!
    i have clearly done something to upset it but what?

    I'm guessing something came loose then. Re-seat all the cables and boards.

    Might not hurt to simply clear the CMOS before you completely tear it down and rebuild it.

    If that doesn't do it, just look at this as an opportunity to improve your wiring job.
