As a first option, try removing and re-seating the RAM and CPU. Disconnect anything from the m/b that is not absolutely needed, including optical drives (if you have a bootable HDD).

Hi there disconnected everything except the graphics card,reseated ram and cpu and still the same thing

try disconnecting everything except graphic card, disconnect hard drives, floppy, cdroms. remove all case header wires except "pwr", then try to power up the pc again.

is the cpu fan spinning when you press the power button?, if not then your mobo will shutdown to protect the proc.

i have the same board as you except it is the E+ version. with the same cpu (barton core), 768 333mhz mem and an FX5200 128mb graphics card,

looking at your spec i would expect that it might be the memory that is too slow for the proc but i believe it would just ramp the cpu down to 266mhz.

you may also have to unplug the graphic card and plug in an older type pci graphic card to get an output to the screen.

it could be that the primary graphics is set to PCI instead of AGP.

had this before but not on this board, had to put in an older type card before it would output to screen.

are you sure the monitor is ok?


have you set the FSB jumpers on the board to 266mhz.

jumper FSB_SEL0 should be on pins 2+3

jumper FSB_SEL1 should be on pins 1+2

page 11 in your manual (if its the same as mine) section 2.4 Jumper settings.

hope this is of some help

Hi - just a thought - your original post says you can't get any video from your mobo - yet you have a graphics card fitted - I suppose your monitor is connected to that graphics card and not to the mobo vga output?

there is no vga socket on motherboard only the graphics card
