Okay, I am building a new PC and I have almost all the parts. I only need the CPU and the GPU. The GPU isn't necessary I know that, but when I try to power it on just to see if the fans come on and and lights work, they only turn on for 1-2 seconds and turn off. I then have to wait till the fans have stopped till I can try again. I have a MSI Z77A-G41 mobo.

If you don't have a CPU it's not going to turn on...

It won't even just give power to the mobo and fans? Just keep turning off? I don't need the BIOS. Just want to see if everything works so far.

It will do exactly what you said it did. They will come on for a second then the mobo will power the system off when it detects there is no CPU.
