If you have changed the motherboard without either re installing windows or repairing windows you will need to because of hardware serial numbers that windows checks against installed hardware. Change the first boot device in the bios F2 or Del on boot up to your cdrom save and exit and then insert the cd before you re boot. Allow the cd to install the installation files, but when prompted instead of pressing enter to install windows, press 'R' to repair instead, at which point your C: drive will be shown, press 'Y' to answer yes to the c drive that needs to be repaired and press enter and allow a system repair, no docs or files will be lost as you are only repairing not formatting and installing. If you have already done the above or done a clean install, check in the bios (F2 or Del on boot up) again and see if all your hard drives and cdrom drives are listed correctly, if not select F10 or F12 depending on bios type, which is normally auto detect drives, as you may have faulty or damaged system files or damaged sectors on you hard drive. If you get running you right click on your hardrive and select explore,right click 'C' drive, then properties, then tools tab and select error checking.

What dual core CPU is compatable with the dragon plus?

hello sir, hi im afraid that the dragon plus has no AMD x2 (DUAL CORE) compatible CPU. if you want a dual core motherboard compatible, get the socket AM2 version for AMD or the LGA 775 for intel processor.

Fried motherboard c51gm03a1 would like to buy another one

I have done a pretty extensive search online for that motherboard and unfortunately it looks to be discontinued. its an AMD AM2 socket with the Nvidia 590 chipset. If you were to find another board thats AM2 with the nvidia 590 chipset you might be able to get away with installing it and not having to reinstall your OS. I reccomend or as well as for used products.

Hi markpcfixer,
That green diagnostic LED you see on the motherboard is telling you there is power connected to the board. (That's all).
Each time you were able to reach post was from completely disconnecting power from the board. So I can suggest a couple of things. First make sure the board is not grounding through you're case. Is the board screwed onto the stand-offs? Stand-offs are copper looking legs that screw into the case. You lay the board over the copper pegs & screw down the board. Each screw should have a red fiber washer just under the screw so the screws do not short out the board. Nothing under the board should be touching the case other than the back plate.
Once you are sure everything is ok than make sure you added thermal grease between the CPU & heat-sink fan assembly.
Two things left. You're board needs a lot of power. Does you're current power supply include a 24-pin ATX main connector for
PWR2 J2800? (IF no you need a PSU that does). You also must have a 4-pin ATX_12v power connector on PWR1 J2802.
You're system will not boot with out these. You're board also can use up to 6 SATA drives. You're power supply should be no less than 500W. 550W would be better. If you are still unable to boot the system, only than would I consider flashing the bios. You can find that at this link.
You must pick the correct terms in each window to load the driver & bios page. They are (From left to right), Mainboard Soultions, than IGP Innovation- 780,690 & lastly,
PURE Innovation PI-A9RX480 Than click, Download the Driver
Each time you go there you will need to type this in.
You have swapped out the CPU & memory, the last thing to try is the power supply & bios. There is noting to check after that.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
