Here are my problems....
1.When powering on the system I get NO BEEPS at all.
2.No Video at All It doesnt even wake the monitor.
3.The Harddrive and Floppy drive lights stay lit never going off.
4.I have to press and hold the power button to turn off the system.

I have yet to do one thing with this new system?? Is my processor to big Im not sure this motherboard supports AMD DURON 1.2GB Processor??If not what would be the results?? HELP ME PLEASE Thanks

I found my video card to be defective.I tried in 3 separate PC's all had the same results.I installed a PCI Video card and my system fired right up beautifully.SO now I've bought a Savage 2000 64MB video card but it wont let me change video settings says a problem with adapter,so I may go back to the PCI Video card as that ran flawlessly??Go figure.Id really like a better card

Ive seemed to putr an end to my problems all by the manner in which these device drivers are loaded.I loaded them all Video and LAN thru control panel-systems and installed the drivers thru the hardwares properties.
