This is my second VM HDMI, after the first wouldnt Post at all. The second one POST was successfull, but now I can only use my Pentium 4 630 with its heatsink. If I use any part of the intel e8400 (processor or heatsink) the board wont post. I have tried using BIOS 5030, and 4050 but neither get it to POST.

Set Up
PSU : Corsair 450w
RAM : Crucial PC-4200 1 GB Sticks x 4

Please help me, Ive been trying to get this computer fixed all week.

I might try reading my manual to see if it supports 4200 RAM. This is from the Asus Specs.

"4 x DIMM, max. 8GB, DDR2 800 / 667 MHz, non-ECC, un-buffered memory
Dual channel memory architecture"

First try to boot it with just 1 stick of memory instead of all 4...then if it works, add more sticks.

I am experiencing the same thing, wouldn't post at all. It's not the memory, I'm using 2Gig of OCZ DDR2 PC6400 800 MHz, non-ECC, unbuffered, yet still it won't boot with the intel e8400 processor. What a let-down. Perhaps someone from Asus can help, anyone out there? I doubt seriously if the original e8400 heatsink had anything to do with it.

Setup: Antec Sonata II case, Thermaltake 500w PSU, RAM: 2 GB OCZ DDR2 PC6400 800 Mhz, CPU: Intel 8400, Heatsink: Zalman (not the original heatsink).

Got it to work: the problem lies in the memory that I used, OCZZ2G8002GK PC2 6400 EL Dual CH Gold Edition XTC 5-5-5-12. I switched to Corsair memory 2 GB and it booted and posted like a charm.
