I just assembled an AMD Duron 1.8GHz CPU on a PC Chips Socket A ATX motherboard with 256MB PC2100 DDR 266MHz. It is in a new Soyo case with a 400W power supply.
When I powerup, the fans run but I get no POST beeps and no video.
This is the same problem I had with my "old" system which is why I bought this one from TigerDirect.com.
I tried several old videocards (they were lying around so I don't know if they are any good) all with the same results.
I quadrupple checked all connections and tried unplugging everything, and got the same results.
Thus my question... any help would be appreciated.
