Question about Abit VP6 Motherboard
I have just tried to get this machine running which I've had stored for some time. I'm sure it was working before I stored it away. Anyway, the motherboard won't boot. Everything powers up but I get a blank screen. I get a number lock and scroll lock light on my keyboard come up, and after fiddling with the machine only the scroll lock comes up now. I have reset the cmos many times. I have tested it with different sticks of memory and vga cards. Since its a dual CPU motherboard, I have also tested both CPU's, I get the same problem whatever combination I've used. Any ideas what might be the problem? I suspect the CPU's have both bitten the dust but not sure how likely it is for both to go at the same time?
Look at the caps on your vp6.any bulged/leaking?

Use only 1 CPU in the first socket. Check the bus speed on the CPU's. If they are not the same clock or frequency (800mhz@133FSB for example) it will not work. If an AGP slot is available, try it for video first. Most MOBO's default the AGP slot, if not try the PCI next. You should have a 300watt power supply at least. This board is 133FSB and a PIII CPU at 100mhz FSB will not work. VIA chipsets can be flakes to some CPU's.
