What are your connections?


I put this computer togethermyself. Have done several other before without a hitch. But this one is driving me nuts. Put everything in and loaded the operating system and drivers. Computer works great. Let it run for several days no problems. Turn it off to move compter to my desk. Plugged it in and went to turn it on and nothing. LCD lights on the monitor, key board, CD rom all flash indicating they are getting power. The fans are running and the green LCD light on the tower it on. Hard drive does not boot up and loose power to key board. If I unplug it from the wall for about 30 to 40 minutes and plug it back in. It will boot up with no problems. Took the power supply and Video card down and had them tested. Working fine. I am running a shuttle mother board. the APG slot supports upto a 4x. I am currently running a radean 9200 8x. The power supply is 350 watts. I was told that a 4x slot needs 3 volts and a 8x needs only 1.5 volts. Will this cause the problem? I am running a 8x in my soyo board that has only a 4x APG slot and it works great. Any idea's?
