Re: No DVD-ROM boot
If you have put a Windows system disc in your dvd drive, then re boot your pc should find your cd then say press enter, but if it's stopping before you get there, an error has occured.
Did you hear 2 beeps(not together)
Go back into the bios and go into the 'standard cmos settings'
and at the bottom you will see a line saying 'halt on all errors'.
Also check that your HD drives are listed as they should be; and not an old drive, if you have changed your drive that is.
Dissable this and save settings and try booting again to your dvd drive.

You're Intel motherboard does support up to 4 SATA hard disk drives including SATA CD-ROM / DVD-ROM drive, reader/writers. This MB also includes two serial ATA IDE ports. The most likely reason you're system is not booting is because all SATA ports are all seen as Master drives. By connecting the SATA DVD-ROM drive the bios auto configured the SATA ports. You'll need to enter the bios when you're system boots-up. Press the F2 key on you're keyboard right after hearing a single beep. You will than enter the bios main menu. Listed at the main menu are devices connect to the motherboard. (Instruction on how to move around in the bios is listed at the bottom of the screen). Mainly, the hard disk drive or (drives) and the SATA DVD writer. You'll need to open the Boot tab. Look for boot order. You want the boot order set like so; First boot device: [Floppy disk] drive; if one is connected. Second Boot device: [Primary Hard Disk] drive. (The drive with windows installed on it). (This drive may be ATA IDE or SATA; you did not provide that information). Third Boot device: [DVD-Rom] drive. Save and exit the bios. The system will auto restart. You're windows operating system should load correctly after the auto re-start. The SATA data cable and the SATA power cable should be checked for good connection. It only takes a little bump to make either loose. Here is the link to Intel for you're motherboard; http://downloadcenter.intel.com/SearchResult.aspx?lang=eng&keyword=%22+D102GGC2+%22
Graphics are always going to be the hangup with ratings.
A large processor is grate but will display alot of heat. Heat and time kills.
Which ever you purchase, I would get an extended warranty.
Check the pros and cons on the internet first.
check the bios settings first. if you can see your sata hdd and dvd rom drive then you can install it with no problem. or else try to replace the cables of the hdd if the hdd is not showing up in the bios. also check that the hdd is set to master drive and dvd also set to master as they are on different connections.
the mainboard has onboard graphic adapter (S3 bla bla bla)
try using it. unplug your nvidia FX5500
how is it? does it work?
if it still not working, then STOP here. something is wrong with your mainboard
if it is working, then goto BIOS configuration
change the PROCESSOR frequency to 100 MHz (MANUAL) and the RAM frequency to 400MHz
save the configuration, and shut it down immediatelly
plug the nvidia FX5500 back, and turn your pc on...
it should be working fine now
but if you still have problem, then i'm sorry... couldn't help you any further... :)
Based of your post/description and assuming not hardware problem, you may have to set up the priority boot device in the BIOS to CD. This will tell your mb to look for a boot medium from the cd first. This is normally in the Advance Setup/1st Boot Device. Of course soon as installed, you have to boot from the HD next time. Good luck and kind regards.
