    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

          Could be sunspots. Or not.

          Usually, when a computer starts and then shuts down, it is because the power supply is improperly 'holding down' the power button. Your M2 has a connector to your ACPI pins. Remove the connector and use a paperclip to short the pins momentarily. Your computer should start and run normally. If it does, there's something wrong with the M2.

            What BugByte said....... Also next time contact Mo-Co-So, Chris is very good about getting back to people that need help, especially customers buying his products.
