I just installed the above subject mb and athlon x cpu. I have power to the board, however the system will not boot up. I have 1024 ram, a 400w power supply. I checked and reset the ram, checked the other connections, and they appear to be functioning. The cpu, dvd/cd drives, floppy disk drive are getting power. What can possible be wrong. email@example.com
Check if it's plugged in(haha just joking :)) )... are you sure the system panel connector from the case fits with ur mothrboard? if not you have to change some wires.Also there might be somehing from the PSU.I hope this worked for you coz it worked for me.

Looking at this post, I think your Motherboard is bad. Have you tried a different Video Card? My other thought is the CPU is overheating due to incorrect seating of the FAN and heat sink. Try cleaning the CPU off, and put new paste on the CPU, then re-seat the heat sink. Be careful to make sure the anchors are pushed all the way down by slightly twisting or wiggling the heat sink. Check for looseness. Push down on all memory sticks to ensure they are seated all the way in. They should click on both sides. If it still gives you a red light, then contact the website of the manufacturer, and get an RMA number for a replacement.
To turn your computer off, hold the power button in for 6 to 8 seconds. I would disconnect the fans you installed to see if you are loading your power supply. If you install a video card take it out and in a couple time to clean the contact, with the power off.
