Your motherboard does NOT support SATA drives, without an added SATA controller. It does support PATA drives, such as the Samsung SP2514N and the Seagate PATA drive you listed, as well as any other PATA drive. A PATA drive may be referred to as PATA, IDE, ATA100, ATA133, or even ATA66, but not SCSI, Ultra320, U320, or SATA, SATA II, SATA100, SATA300, etc.

The Seagate drives are easy to identify, their model number ends in AS if it is a SATA drive, and just A if it is a PATA drive.

ASUS VIA KT133 Chipset A7V133-M IDE drivers

Must install motherboard drivers right after you install XP ( chipset is always needed first ) If you use Nvidia drivers or a 4 in 1 make sure you do those first before anything else .

Upgrading processor to Duron 1.4GHz

well older mother board cant handle a higher CPU processor, you have to make sure you have ALL the jumper properly set for the CPU, also the memory on the motherboard should be for that motherboard. try not to OC the motherboard as it will fry it.

Also check the motherboard for any Blown capacitor. for the MB to scream bloody murder something is definately wrong.

you could check the website of asus and look under ARCHIVE or DISCONTINUED motherboard. to find drivers and manuals for the motherboard you have unless you have them

also make sure the motherboard can actully take a higher processor.

When i turn on there is display

Probably power supply or motherboard. Too old to fix really, you might get away with a powersupply but it's hard to tell.

are you using an add-on video card? If so, then go to BIOS and enable it.
