Abit VA-20 motherboard help plz
Hi i recently purchased the Abit VA-20 motherboard. I have a AMD athlon 1.333 Ghz processor, and 512 mb of 3200 memory. I have a 40gb hard drive that already has Windows XP installed on it, but i was planning to resinstall once I had booted off the Windows CD-ROM.
When i first booted after installing everything & running off the VGA adapter on the motherboard, the Bios booted told me my processor had 1 Ghz of memory & then just froze. I then restarted it and nothing came up on the screen, the monitor stayed on stand by. I had installed everything correctly so could not figure what was wrong.
The next day I put a graphics card into the AGP and it got a little further. I managed to get into the BIOS where it froze again. I tried it once more and managed to change the boot device to CD-ROM, and save the changes. it restarted recognised the CD then froze on the screen 'Checking your config...' The next time i booted u after this it, came up with nothing again just like it had before.
Your help would be really appreciated.
