I'm putting together a computer from old parts I've got lying around the house (problem solved? :p ). So far I've got an ABIT KV7 motherboard, an AMD Athlon 2500+ CPU, a couple of sticks of 512 mb ram, nvidia GeForce 7600 GS, Belkin Serial ATA PCI Card and a Western Digital 500GB hard drive (SATA) and an old Aopen 250W power supply.

I get to where it's just finished inspecting my hardware, but then it either restarts or just shuts down. Does anyone know what could be wrong?
