- No Beeps/ System shuts down after 6 seconds

processor. System switches on but then shuts down after approximately 6
seconds. No P.O.S.T. beep codes or anything else to indicate problem.
Original Motherboard was D.O.A. so this is a replacement one direct from
When I built the system with the new board last night it powered up fine
and I got half way through installing the O.S. when it shut down, I then
powered it back up and it gave me 4 alternating P.O.S.T. beeps which
when looked up means "thermal warning". Opened up system and checked
all connectors, checked that processor fan was functioning correctly,
checked for airflow obstructions as per:
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d945psn/ and found
nothing. Left it a while, powered it back up fine and tried installing
O.S. again but it powered down after about the same interval as last
time and when I restarted gave the same thermal warning code.
Now this morning when I tried to power up the system as I said it powers
up for approximately 5-6 seconds then shuts off with no beeps or anything.
Any ideas greatly appreciated guys!!!
Thanks in advance
