Hi all. I built this computer here, but with an i7 and an SSD. I put it all together and everything was going great. I hit the power button, put the windows dvd in, and installed windows. It booted to the desktop, and I removed the Windows dvd. A couple seconds later, the computer shut off all at once. Now, when I hit the power button, nothing happens, except the rear cooling fan on the case spins a few times and then dies.

Help! I have no idea where to go from here.

1. Check all power connectors to make sure everything is connected.
2. Remove all memory modules, plug only 1 module in. If that doesn't work, just plug the second module in.
3. Remove graphics card and plug monitor directly into mobo.
4. Clear CMOS

Did any of the above work?
