New build cannot start

Hey guys.

I just bought my whole new build. Including motherboard, ram, cpu.
You can check the specs in my spec list.

This is the first time I builded a pc, so anything is possible.

Everytime I try to boot the new pc, the fans just starts and go off. Like the whole computer turns on then off, happens in like 1 sec.

The motherboard is P8 Z68-V Pro. If you think I mounted something wrong, tell me the possibilities what could have gone wrong.

Please reply as fast as you can as it's so fustrating.

Frede.

Remove and reseat the cpu, the symptoms are common and check the board for earth leaks. Remove the board from any casing, place on an insulated surface and having reseated all the critical components (cpu, ram, graphics card) try to boot.
Remember to enter the BIOS setup utility at the first attempt to check settings and timings etc; then restart and keep everything crossed.

No problems at the CPU, I figured out that the main cable to the motherboard wasn't installed properly. Now I could boot the system; BUT it restarted one time or so.

But some guys at Tomshardware says it's a mobo feature. I'll recall if any other issues will appear.

Yes a couple of reboots at first shouldn't be too troublesome, I hope it settles for you. Well diagnosed.

Is it still double booting? In bios set everything to optimized defaults and see if it still double boots. If not, change 1 item at a time with tests in between. That way, you will find out what the problem is that causes double booting. My board did the same thing at first. That's what I did and resolved the problem.

Actually it's all back normal now. Installed Windows 7 and it's running.

Thanks for your support!
