Electrical Outlet Install


When I test new outlet with multimeter putting both probes in I get 10VAC, but when I put red probe in EITHER slot and black probe on ground wire I get the 120VAC. The outlet does not work, and it's new and wired correctly I believe..white wire to silver, black to brass. Any help would sure be appreciated.
