That's even better then Newegg! Let me know what happens with the new board.
Yes, Amazon got the board to me within 24 hours...but I had the same result, no POST! On another forum someone suggested the power supply, which is new, could be bad even though I had power lights on the motherboard, the hard drive spun up, the DVD player seemed to work, the case fan, and the cpu heat sink fan all worked. It just so happened that I had another power supply handy and sure enough the system booted up!
I called Amazon and explained what happened, the rep told me to send back one of the motherboards anyway, there would be no extra charge, what service! So, now I ordered a new Corsair power supply because the one I'm using now is older and doesn't enough SATA power connectors, plus I also ordered a power supply tester. Of course I ordered them from Amazon!
Thanks for the responses,
