DG43GT startup problem


I have a new dg43gt with an e7500 processor installed. I am using 2 x 2gb an 2 x 1gb ddr2-800. The power pilot shows on the motherboard, but when I power it on the cpu fan spins for a few seconds and then shuts down. It appears that the 12 v portion of the power supply turns off since the motherboard pilot remains lit, but the power supply pilot light turns off. This happens with 2 different power supplies. Intel claims the e7500 is supported on the website, but the manual does not mention the 7000 series. Everything appears to be connected correctly and all of the components ran on my slowly failing dell motherboard. The cpu is new, but I know it runs on the dell.

What is wrong Why are my power supplies shutting down?
