hi i have just purchase an ecs elitegroup motherboard K7S5A and checked to see what CPUs are compatible and decided to choose a AMD Duron 1.8ghz as i had a very limited budget as was wanting it just for basic things. I have installed the motherboard as described in the manual the computer powers on but there is no display i have tried 3 different agp graphics cards and still the same problems i have checked all cables and still no luck can anyone help?

Can you boot into the BIOS?

If you can then check that the graphic device is set to AGP

Have you tried plugging the monitor into the motherboards onboard graphics vga slot as well as into the graphics card?

Can you try another monitor in case the one you have is actually dead?

the monitor works fine as the other pc i use has no trouble using the monitor as for the onboard vga slot there isnt one on this motherboard the only way to use the monitor is with a vga card

You do realise that you will need to reinstall xp again if you have installed a different motherboard.
There is a chance of doing a repair with your xp disc but it's nearly always a reinstall job.

Can you post the ram you are using ? if you do not know just post the serial code on the ram itself.

This could be non-compatible ram.

Any beeps when switching on the pc ?
