Are you sure you have power to the mobo?  Is the power switch correctly plugged in to the mobo?  Is the RAM plugged in right?  Processor not secure?

I would unplug everything except the video, RAM, and processor.  Test the outlet to make sure you have power and test the power supply on another system.

You may have to look at the board and configure a jumper to use the 2000+.  I think they use 266fsb right?  If you don't have the manual for it check out their web site for it.  Here is the link for your board.

i hav got the manual and tryed onfigering the jumper but it still will not start.i think this motherboard might not b compatible with this cpu. the website says sumthing about Pcb versions. it says that it is only compatible with the 2.1 version i have the 1.1 version so unless im worng it shouldnt work.

Yeah, I would either get a BIOs update or send the board back if you can and get another one that you know will work.  Sorry that it did not work out for you.

change the jumper from 133mhz to 100mhz or vice versa look into your motherboard manuel for the details.
