Well, I just purchased an AMD Phenom II X4 Quad Core 940 Black Edition 3.0GHz (Socket AM2+) for the above motherboard, when I put it in there is no problems switching everything on, but the monitor remains on standby indefinitely. And a green LED becomes lit on the motherboard. I do not get the beep from the MB either to say everything is good to go.
I am fully stumped with this situation, I would really greatly appreciate some advice or assistance on the issue! Thanks for your time!

I have just realised I picked up the wrong box and it's actually a Abit KN9 nForce Ultra (Socket AM2) PCI-Express DDR2 Motherboard so I will shift this topic elsewhere, mods feel free to delete my cyber-stupidity
