    ABIT IC7 Problem - Turns on then right back off.

    Just got back from the computer show with a nice new IC7 board..

    Only problem is, damn thing won't turn on. I'm pretty sure I just got a defective motherboard because what happens is when I press the power button it will turn on for 1 second then cut right back off.

    I have a old IT7 that I can plug in with nothin on the board.. no cpu/vid card/mem, turn it on and it will turn on and stay running. If I try to do the same with the IC7 it just turns on and off.

    Once when I was trying to clear the CMOS I turned it on and it stayed on but that doesn't do much good.

    So in short, I'm pretty sure it's just a defect. Just wondering if anyone here had any other ideas?

    Thanks,

    d33068 here..

    So this is a known problem?

    Anywho I just found out this board doesn't support 400fsb and i'm running a 1.8ghz northwood cpu.. this is just a 2nd computer for my girldfriend.. I'm gonna return it tomororw and get something else.

    Any sugesstions? I'd prolly go IS7 but I don't think they have that one.. not sure. Might go with an ASUS board with the same chipset.

    When I said ASUS board w/ same chipset I meant same chipset as the IC7 because from what I read the asus board with the 875p can run at 400mhz fsb.

    Found out it was just the power supply. They do run at 400mhz fsb too.
