What kind of memory do you have ?
Try single using 1 stick in DIMM B1 if 1 stick works remove it and try the other stick in DIMM B1 . you may have 1 bad memory module .In order to hear the post beaps youll need to install a speaker to the MB go ahead and reconnect all the connections on the MB especially the CPU fan i distinctly remember unhooking that because i had no post.Also what type of video card do you have ?
i am on cloud 9 right now! (well, maybe 8 1/2)
ok, i did what u suggested...
-only put 1 DIMM (Crucial 512mb 3200) in B1 slot
- unhooked ALL peripherals, even the CPU (AMD64 3000+) fan, reconnected them again.
-turned it on...and then i saw the beautiful green ASUS welcome screen!!!!
-removed the DIMM and put in the other 512mb stick and that worked too!
man, who knew huh? lots of head scratchin' to figure that out.
the joy in my heart was like a child's x-mas wish come true, truly!
i have a Radeon 9800Pro 128 (made by PowerColor) btw.
since i was running out of time during lunch, all i saw was the setup screen, then it said "error finding OS"..
so what should my next step be?
configure the bios
and then, put the XP disc into the drive and it'll format/run it automatically right?
i'll post back w/ the results.
thanks a lot for your help Cap!
