Question about ASUS P5GD1-VM Motherboard
As i see a bit further down , somebody seems to have the same issue.
Now what i see: when pressing the start button , the fans come on , but die after a couple of seconds.
I tried starting without drives or hard disk attached , but the problem stays the same.
Now what i wonder is: my power supply is 400 watts.
Is this adequate for starting the mobo with the 3 gig processor , or must i go higher?
Happy new year to all of you out there!

400w should work, although if you add an additional video card and multiple drives to that you're getting close.
Try removing all but one memory module, blowing any dust from the motherboard, and double checking the fan is secured properly to the processor. If you are using a separate video card, remove and reseat that too.

You should reset your BIOS and see if this solves the problem. Consult your motherboard manual or visit www.asus.com and download the manual for your specific motherboard for instructions on how to reset your CMOS (BIOS).
If this does not help, please give me your specific motherboard model #, type of RAM being used, how much RAM, and how many sticks. Also, when did this problem first occur? Was the pc functioning properly at first, or have you installed a new motherboard?
