hey ppl

Well i just got given a TH7II a few days ago. Stuck some RAM, CPU, Fan etc onto it, then shoved it into a case.

Buuut when i went 2 test it, the box powers on for 1 sec then switches off.

When i remove any of the important components (RAM and CPU) then the box powers up (but obviously is unusable).

Any 1 kno whats up with this prob?

Using following hardware:

2x256MB Samsung
Intel P4 2.0GHz
GeForce 440MX SE 64MB
350W PSU

could be the PSU is not sufficient to power the system. Does it have the 4pin 12v connector (a.k.a P4 power connector) and is it plugged into the motherboard?

have already tried that, it powers up but shows obviously shows nothing on the screen cause theres no RAM. I dont think the problem is with the ram though, because i have the same problem with another set of RDRAM sticks that work in another box i have that use RDRAM
