computer wont pass post.

Anyone care to give me any advice?
I bought a new power supply ultra x connect 500, along with a 6800GT (bought a couple of days ago and works great), and an Antec Super lanboy to replace my old case.
Well i switched everything from my old case today over (except for optical drives)
hard drive, and mobo w/ proc and HSF, and installed the ram, installed the card, and installed the psu, connected everything correctly, and now it wont pass post.
it'll turn on for a couple of seconds and shut off in seconds, tried my ram in another computer and is working fine, along with the vid card.
I thought it might have been a psu problem, so I tried my antec true430 and same problem.
i highly doubt its the mobo, since my lan connectivity light still blinks, and when i try to turn it on, the hd and power leds turn on.
i'm stumped.
any ideas?
anyone want to come fix it? i'll pay you.
this is just pissing me off. it's prolly something real stupid too. just out of ideas. anyone?

Diconect everything from the motherboard including the frontpannel wiring (Leave the power cables and cpu). Take out all the agp/pci cards and take a screwdriver or small piece of medal of somesort and turn on the computer by touching the two pins together where the power button would normaly go. If it turns off and reboots it is your motherboard, mostlikely. If it starts up and runs fine just add everything, one at a time.

Have any ? just pm me.

well i've narrowed it down to the power switch on the antec case
my old case has one black one white wire for the pwr sw, on the antec it's black and red.
everything seems to work fine.
new psu works great, it's just the new cases pwr switch.
i don't know why that would be the problem but it is.
now i just have to figure out how to make it work.
any suggestions?

make sure the switch isn't sticking. If the switch stays on it will just keep on reseting the computer. it only needs to touch the other led for a split second. I would recomend taking the switch apart and rebuilding it or modifing it so it doesn't stay in contact.

it's been one annoying problem after another.
it seemed like such an easy thing to do, just swap over mobo, and install new psu.
but it didn't go that way.
I had to replace the power button, with one I made, also had to use a new pwr sw.
then once I got it started, windows couldn't locate my hard drives.
I got it to locate one, but it wont detect my slave for some odd reason.
also, now when I put my computer to sleep, and try to "wake it up" the display wont come on. the comp boots up, but the display wont.
gawd damnit...

well it's running fine now.
the problems started when I switched over to the new case.
the comp was running perfect until the switch, now it's running the way it should. the way it was before the switch.
