I just bought a p4 1.5 ghz and an asus p4t mainboard I've got a geforce 2mx 400 video card and 512 mb rdram I have the correct power supply but don't have a case with standoffs for the processor . I got the motherboard to boot a couple of times and then it quit the fans and lights on case are working but nothing else . can someone help me? The case and the video card are suspect to me. as the board only accepts a 1.5 volt card the card says that its agp 2.0 compliant so I assume it will do the 1.5 volts.

the video card will work and i'm susprised your having problems. any case should do as long as the p/s is correct. i've used the p4t with s423 cpus about 5 times without a problem. flashing the bios would be my first suggestion... how far in the boot process do u get b4 it hangs?? does it post??
The first couple of times it went to the cmos setup and locked up. Then I got past that one time and it started to boot into windows and then the speaker start to beep and it would never boot into any screen at all again.
I don't recall where I read this, but it's my understanding that those boards only support AGP 4X cards, and if you try using a 2X card, you can burn your motherboard, because the voltages for 4X and 2X are different.
The video card is supposed to be agp 4x and 2x compatible
Oh and I tried another motherboard an intel 850gb and nothing happened board lights went on but no video. The video card is still good as I tried it in my old motherboard
