    Need help with computer build keeps restarting over and over.

    It will come on for like 5 sec then turn it's self off and on wont stop. I don't know shit about putting computers together but I just had all this shit laying around and thought I would try. Everything is new so I don't know why it would keep shutting it's self on and off.

    i7
    16 g ram
    ASRock z77 pro 4
    and a Asus HD 7870 2g DDR5
    also 1080 PS

    If it makes a noise, it could be overheating... IIRC my first build I didn't properly put thermal paste.

    Don't see how it could be I just pulled the damn thing out of the box. Guess I will send it back.

    Doesn't make a noise. I think something maybe overheating tho because if I leave it on for a bit to turn off and on it starts smelling like burning plastic.

    Hit it with a brick.

    Actually just repair your system,if you don't know how to follow this :
    * Set your first boot device in the Bios to CD-Rom. Insert your Windows XP CD, save the bios settings and exit. Soon "Press any key to boot of CD" will appear on the screen, hit the space bar to continue.
    * Now setup will inspect your hardware and software, it then will load various files required for the repair. Just wait and be patient, this may take a few moments.
    * Soon a menu will appear (as pictured below), press enter to continue.
    * Now the "End User Agreement" Press "F8" if you agree, "ESC" if you don't.
    * You will now have to select the installation you wish to repair. Usually there is only one, but sometimes, there may be 2 or more (i.e. you have done a parallel install to resolve a problem), use the up/down arrow key to select the install, and then press "R" to continue.
    * Setup will now examine the disk be patient, it can take a few minutes.
    * Setup will go through a percentage - 1 to 100%
    * A screen will soon appear. Press "F3" to continue
    * Now setup will reboot system, wait 15 seconds or just press enter.
    * Now it is time to see if this has solved your problems.

    That's just it. It doesn't stay on to do anything. It comes on for 5 secs turns off and on until I turn the PS off.

    It could be your PSU is dead or maybe mobo ?!

    I had this issue but before I tell you what I did, tell me does anything shows up or is it just a turning on light and then turns off?
