Just installed a new motherboard (intel celeron 300mhz).  When I goto boot the computer nothing happens...I get a very dark monitor screen.  This system was working however I did change a setting in the CMOS: "enabled - cache".  At the time I did not realize this chip had no level 2 cahce onboard!  Could this keep the system from starting up?  If so how can I get the system to start.  Win95 is on the HD and was previously working before this alteration to the CMOS.

ok, is there anyway you can disable so you can put a different one on, just to test if its the motherboard or not

If video card is OK, it's possible motherboard has a problem. Does the computer speaker do any sound ?.

Sorry guys, the CMOS had to be wiped clean.  Luckily the store I got the card from did this for free!

Remove the jumper (usually blue) with three pins, move the to the other end, re-boot, the maching will tell you to shut down and re-boot.  Than will clear all CMOS entries.  

BTW-Second time I had to post this.
