I have just purchased a new Asus barebone and a 3ooo+ AMD 64 sempron after fitting it all together I plugged her in to find that although there is lights coming on there is no display or signs of the computer entering bios!
I have built a lot of computers now and have no idea how to fix this problem so I would appreciate anything you can tell me!

Re: asus barebone - vintage ae1
The only thing that some people over look is that normally the semperon chip has it's own power supply from the psu to the motherboard and not like the older athlon where they were powered by the zif socket, apologies if this is not the case, as you are obviously converse with pc's.
The only other problem could be that the boards bios chip is faulty, iv'e had this if ive overstressed the boards fitting hardware, although this may not be in your case as most of it is already fitted, or the board is shorting on the case somewhere.

This motherboard supports a AMD Athlon 64 / Sempron processor (Socket 754). Since this is an older unit you will have to search on Ebay for a processor. As for the RAM you will need DDR 400, this can easily be purchased at www.newegg.comThere is a maximum of 2 gb on your motherboard.
Did you check ALL the parts on the computer and make sure that EVERYTHING is plugged in? If not, be sure to do that. If this problem is still occurring, make sure that all the parts are fully functional and are not broken. If you don't know how to tell if they are broken, I recommend going to a tech support store and having them check it out for you. Hope this helps!
