    jumpers all connected securely? i'd check the memory too, and make sure it's 'snapped' into place.

    turn on your pc, when it shuts off, place your finger over the motherboard's shipset, is it hot?

    Recheck the installation of the CPU cooler. I suspect you have it on backwards.

    Try clearing the CMOS.

    Yeah i cleared the cmos by removing the batterry and inserting it back in and that didnt fix the problem. The pc still turns off after turning it on

    Clear the CMOS by following the directions in the users manual.

    I would think it is the heatsink. In most cases when the computer shuts itself off after a few seconds it is a poor install of the heatsink, whether it be on backwards, not clamped tight enough, etc
