specifically to run an Amd Athlon XP 3000 processor.
once built when switched on it would power up start the fans and run for maybe 3 seconds then power down .
I tried alsorts changed memory graphics card PSU and then finally the CPU the system now boots ok with the athlon xp 1700 but not whith the 3000 .
but another system i have runs the 3000 cpu no problems but not at full speed as the Mobo doesn't support it (the reason for buying the Msi mobo)
I am using one double sided stick of kingston 266mhz 1Gb ram
a PNY Nvidia 6600 agp card with 256Mb video ram
any pointers would be appreciated
