Question about Intel Motherboard
On power up, the CPU fan spins up for app. 1 sec; then all powers
down. Repeats every 5-7 secs or so until powered off. Tried
memory and tried just one stick. No difference. Tried a new 24 pin ATX
P/S (500 watt antec); no change. Any ideas of what else to try? Is it
likely that the board is DOA?
I took my computer to a professional store, and they said that my motherboard, power supply & video card needed replacing. All my components were brand new! I suspect what happened is that my power supply fried the motherboard and video card.
This is not something I could have figured out on my own. To do this, you would need a spare system and swap parts in and out one at a time to determine which piece wasn't working.

I have this same exact problem on two of 4 Gigabyte motherboards I purchased and built systems for the past few days. One works fine. One, I have not completed yet. The other two worked for awhile, then during a reboot they both failed to start back up. When powered up, the lights and fans come on for one second then shut off. 5 seconds later it repeats until I either cut the power or hold the power button down for 10 seconds. I've tried everything I could think of. Tried different ram, single ram sticks in one slot, older Pentium D cpu's, different power supplies that I know work, tried pulling every component out (all I had was a hard drive and a video card), and tried resetting the cmos. Nothing works. What would fry the motherboard like that?
