Thread: Need Help

    Need Help

    i recently built my own computer from the ground up, when i went to turn it on it would only stay on for a few moments and turn off on its own.
    Thinking that the 750W PSU was under powered i replaced it with a 1000W and now it won't even turn on

    any help is greatly appreciated

    When you have SLI cards, I think that they must be the same exact card. Also, check your heatsink.
