AMD Duron, AMD Athlon are the only supported cpu's for this motherboard

and for memory it only supports
up to 3gb of DDR SDRAM at 400, 333, or 266 Mhz if you are using anythingng else that could be the main problem

Depends on the BIOS. The beep code means ether the memory or CPU. Since you are attempting to install a another CPU its probably a problem with the CPU itself (dameged or incompatible) or a BIOS setting problem. Also make sure you always use thermal paste. The replacement CPU might be heating up and not functioning.

    Yea I totally missed that one I thought you misspelled. What's the power supply brand and model? If you know your motherboard's BIOS you can probrably find information on beep-codes.

Standby blinking green button went off and now cannot turn on. cord connection ok and eveything unplugged that might interfere

I guess your power supply died. try to disable the power supply and enable it again (switch behind the tower) otherwise you should get it checked out by a professional.

I just got this Vectra VL420 from a surplus store. I try to start up I get this funny music and then two beeps. I understand two beeps indicate power problems. But not sure what to do to rectify this....

From memory I would say you are in the right ball park.
I remember now. Error 2 means the power supply is in protect mode.
First check the wiring going to the Motherboard from the PSU. There is a four pin connector that lets the PSU know if all is well with the main board. If that is not connected, that may cause your problem
Try a new PSU. They are fairly cheap. Match the power on the specification panel stuck to the PSU.
If those don't fix it, a new motherboard is the next step.
Hope this helps.

Dell Dimension E510 will not turn on

It could be.

When you switch on after it has been turned off for a while look at the fan on the PSU as you switch on.

If it spins or tries to spin for a very short time then I would indeed suspect the psu.

If however the psu fan does spin for longer and you can hear any beeps then that would be an indication of a different problem.

Should that be the case then check here.

My computer is switching on and nothing displays in the monitor. After switching on, after a minute it automatically switch off. Mother board is Intel 845 GVSR processor 2.4 GHz. Service centre person is...

Try a bios reset first.
Second pull out the memories (RAM). If you hear beeps on startup the the motherboard and the processor is ok.
If not, possibly could be the processor.
Also try with other power source.

I purchased an emachine desktop at an estate sale that had a note on the tower saying it had a new had drive installed and never used. So I purchase it and brought it home, hooked it up and turned it on. ...

Is the 'New hard drive installed, never used' bit relevant? Open the tower, get hard drive...
PC bought at auction won't switch on ?? Anything is possible, from 'It's really an empty tower with a brick in it for weight' .. to any number of usual suspects.. The fact that most PC computer 's make a beep and light up stuff when switched on for instance relies on the presence of a working PSU.
Your diagnostic approach would begin there.

remove the ram, do you hear beeps?

you might want to get your hands on one of these

if link broken click here

Reseing the bios shouldn't be a problem go ahead, or is there something I don't know? does it void the warranty? I don't think so.
