i just recently recieved my Biostar M7VIG400 and Athlon XP 2200+ Socket A, along with psu, case, and cd drive..and the scoop is that i put it all together, plug it all in, turn it on, and it stays at the Biostar screen and i press delete, it still stays there for about a minute and goes to bios, i set the fsb frequency to 133mhz because the cpu fsb is 266mhz (since 133 x 2 = 266) after finding that it was set at 100, still, nothing..any help will be highly appreciated, ive tried all i know..thanks in advance

There's a couple things I would try:

Remove all but the bare essentials (CPU and RAM) and see how far it boots.
Reset the BIOS to factory settings.
The BIOS should have a hardware monitor so that you can check to see if it's overheating.
Try different RAM is available, or try using different combinations of sticks and slots of what you have.
