This happened for about 4 weeks or so, could usually coax it to start after 4-5 tries.
It no longer will boot up. It literally boots up for 1-2 seconds - lights come on the cpu - then it shuts down and starts all over again.
Been doing it for 30 minutes now. I have disconnected the video cards and all peripheals - and the problem persists. I did a hard reset - 5-6 times to no avail.
I have reset the cmos on the kaili motherboard - to no avail .

Yes I did the hard reset - actually 3 or 4 Times . No change
i finished the troubleshooting (except the ones that asked me to hit keyboard buttons - as the computer does not start long enough to even recognize the keyboard). It literally restarts after maybe 1-2 seconds max
I appreciate the help so far
