New Build Problem
I just built a new computer. Here are the specs:
CPU AMD A64 X2 4800+ 2.5G AM2 65N
CPU COOLER ROSEWILL RCX-Z940-SL
ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe NF570SLI AM2
2GB (2x1GB) Crucial Ballistix PC-6400 800MHz RAM
VGA XFX PVT84GUDF3 8600GTS 256MB
HD 160GB WD 7K 8M SATA2 WD1600AAJS (OS Only Drive)
CREATIVE XtremeGamer 70SB073A00000 RT
CASE RAIDMAX ATX-612WBP 500W BK
DVD_BURN ASUS DRW-1814BLT LS BLK
When I tried to power it up for the first time, I had to hold the power button in for two seconds. Then it would turn on, all the case fans and the heatsink will spin, but it shuts right off. The LED on the motherboard is illuminated green. What am I doing wrong?

you sure you have the wires from the case attached correctly. might want to test the psu with another one if you have any laying around

As phish said check the wires from the front panel are connected to the correct pins on the mobo.
You may have the Power and Reset connections crossed.
Could also be a faulty Power On switch.
