I cannot get it to post,fans come on,drives spin up,nothing else,no signal to the monitor.
Graphics card.5900lx-checked in another machine=works ok.
CPU-1 brand new sempron 2800,1 xp2000,xp2600barton-same with all 3 processors.
ram 512 ddr400 or 256ddr266,same with either=nothing,brand new stick of ddr2700=same as my own ram.
fsb set to 333 or 266=nothing with either settings.
CPU multiplier set as per ASROCK website manual,i have even set it lower to try to get it to work.
PSU=all voltages checked=checks ok with a multi meter.
Any more ideas?
I am stuck.
I have even tried it with all drives disconnected,just ram,cpu,graphics card.....Nothing.
I also tried a different graphics card,no difference.
And of course,Asrock do not supply the adapters for your usual atx supply.
I've never had to use these before and don't have an adapter.
B****cks,this has been really pi**ing me off.
Are these usually on p4's?, i've never had to use one before(Nforce 2 ultra 400 and kt266a motherboards before and these never had them).
Thank you for pointing this out, i nearly wasted £400 on a p4 3.0ghz base unit from Pcworld today, luckily as i was checking the specs someone else brought it....fate you know.After this rocky start, me and this board are (if it works) gona get on fine, and look forward to that 939 expansion card after all.
Brand new sempron 2800 and an xp2000 soon to be on ebay.
Your usual power supply has had the square 4-pin ATX12v header for the last 4 years, how old IS your power supply?

If you can't find the plug in your PS harness, like Crash said, give some serious thought to a new power supply. With that 5900 card you're gonna want around 300 watts. A real old PS without it would be 200 - 250 watt.
