It's very unfortunate that you don't check message boards seeing as how you posted at one for the answer to a question.

You could say I've been around.

it's all in right, i just found a part of my problem.the jumpers were not set right, i downloaded the manual and fixed the jumpers, now when i press reset it resets itself.The reasen why it wont boot is because inside the mobo in has flash memory installed.The flash memory is used to hold in the bios.The main problem is that the bios is not there or its corrupted.I need to put in the bios someway.I found a couple of kits to install a bios.
