I possess a desktop with GA-7VMM / VIA KLE133 chipset and 750MHz Duron processor; 20 GB HDD; 52X CDROM drive; 1.44MB FDD; 17" Color Monitor (SAMTEL); 128 MB RAM
Few months back I had installed WindowsXP as the OS and it was working fine though slow (understandably). Recently, I got relocated to a new place and post shifting when I attempted bringing up my desktop I landed up into the following problem -
1) At power up the monitor does show the information pertaining to POST wherein the HDD and RAM details show up (correctly)
2) On pressing the spacebar for 'Press any key to continue' prompt the monitor goes blank and it's power on LED turns amber from green
3) The BIOS does seek CDROM drive but I fail to operate the drive for placing a bootable CD into it
4) I made my first bootable drive to be IDE0 and disabled everything else but still could not go beyond the blank screen problem

Hmmm.... mainly you have: -20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components) -4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU -the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)
Try removing all cards with the exception of the video. Remove all memory leaving (1) to boot from. Disconnect power and reset the processor. If you have a boot disk or copy of XP on disk, try to boot from the CD or DVD. If the unit boots at all the problem may be the HD. If not try downloading the BIOS update for your chipset. Remove all extra drive, like secondary CD or DVD drives, Floppy or Zip drives. You may have burnt the processor but I don’t think so. Power supply is OK or you would not power up. Their are 3 or 4 supply voltages from supply, +- 12 volts, +- 5 volts and +-3.3 volts. You may have a secondary 12 volt 4-pin plug but that is for on board video. Try a boot disk and flash your BIOS, if you can. Hope this helps.
well older mother board cant handle a higher CPU processor, you have to make sure you have ALL the jumper properly set for the CPU, also the memory on the motherboard should be for that motherboard. try not to OC the motherboard as it will fry it.
Also check the motherboard for any Blown capacitor. for the MB to scream bloody murder something is definately wrong.
you could check the website of asus and look under ARCHIVE or DISCONTINUED motherboard. to find drivers and manuals for the motherboard you have unless you have them
also make sure the motherboard can actully take a higher processor.
Thermal grease is always good its help alot, just dont over do the grease applications. as ive seen pasta made out of thermal grease cpu's
I recommend that you formatt your HDD to a FAT32 system probably by using another pc then you should also ensure that your bios is setup for the appropriate operating system. maybe just download the appropriate bios files off the gigabyte web site.
1.make sure your monitor is plugged on the video card.
2.check *********** board manual for videocard slots.
3.check your videocard if they nid extra power from four(4) pin
female power cable or six pin female power cable.
4.try using another monitor.. or TV XD
