Just put together a P5GPL board with the Intel Celeron D processor
LGA775 CPU, 1 Maxtor 200mb Ultra ATA drive, 1 512mb Value Select
Corsair memory stick, and Diamond ATI Radeon X300SE PCI Express video
card, but at on power, POST, no video, and no beeps, I get a green
light on the P5GPL board, to make sure its not video card, I put in a
simple PCI S3 video card, also no video comes up. I also swapped out
the Corsair memory with a Kingston 512MB DDR 400 from another working
PC with no luck. I put together many rigs in the past, even some Asus
boards, and had no problems with Asus (BTW stay away from ECS boards)
Anybody with this P5GPL board have any tips I could try, BTW I also
removed the battery from the board to clear the CMOS. Everything fires
right up when turning on the power, CPU fans, HD powers up, CD drive
powers up, but nada on the video.

I read the manual and it says you can use one stick as single channel
memory?

Thanks, I'll try a diff PSU, it's a 300w Sparkle PSU, it used to power
my older ASRock board with no problems, but I guess this Asus board
draws more power.

Make sure the ATX12V 2x2 power connector is connected. That
power connector is in the upper left corner of the motherboard
picture in the manual. Without the 2x2 square power connector,
the processor gets no juice.

Make sure the power supply is good for 12V @ 15A (usually printed
on the label on the side of the PSU). That is a bare minimum for
a P4 board with minimal components.

If all else fails, pull the PSU from the computer case, and
assemble all components on your table top. Place a thick telephone
book underneath the motherboard, for support. That will leave
room for the plugin card faceplates, to hang below the motherboard
level. This "cardboard" test makes it easy to examine the CPU
heatsink for proper assembly, and eliminates the possibility of
an extra standoff shorting to the bottom of the motherboard.

I'm betting this is just the 2x2 connector...
