Yea i saw on asrock.com that the motherboard can work with DDR2 400, 533, and 667 then on the intel site, it says my processor can only work with 400 or 533. In the mobo manual, it says the mobo can work with 400(PC2-3200) 533(PC2-4300) and 667(PC2-5400) and the ram i have is 533(PC2-4200) so i dont know if thats the problem. I also checked probably 20 times to make sure i put the ram in the DDR2 slot and i did.
i hooked up a laser mouse and turned on the computer but the mouses light didnt turn on but the moniter, fans, and the lights on the tower turned on.
about the IEEE connection, do i need to buy a PCI card that has the IEEE on it cause i need that port for my digital camcorder.
i checked all the power cables and i'm pretty sure i have them all connected but theres one cable i'm not familiar with. It says P9 on it.
