Did you put two different speed cpus in there?  That's not going to work, you know.  Mixing up your RAM with different speeds is also bad.  Why don't you start out with a minimal configuration first - one cpu (if the board allows it, or use the two Celeron 366), one stick of RAM.  Your BX chipset is a little old, too, and might need updating to handle 1.4 GHz Celerons, which need 100FSB and 1.5v (the 366's needed 66FSB and 2.0v).

i already tried that with one cpu and one stick of ram still nothing do you think that the heat in the van affected the board

and i did have two different speed cpu's in it and it all worked but one the one that was a 366 was hotter after playing a game for four (4) straight hoursit was like 49* C for the 500Mhz and 53*C for the 366Mhz after playing a game  and how do i upgrade the BX chipset whatever that iscould ya tell me

The heat in the van would not have been hot enough to affect the board.  The mix of different hardware, plus being bumped around, could keep it from working.  Take it out of the case and try to boot it with one stick of RAM, the two cpus, and the video card (in case it's shorting on the case).

board is damaged not questions asked

this is most likely what happen a few days ago i relealized since i put my board in this case and put all the plastic connectors things that go between the board and the case and well i set it up so i only have one place to screw in the board there was no screw in it because well i never screwed it down to secure it  but by downing that i put pressure on the board and well there was a srew from the L brackets to put on the sides since i moded it a screw went into the board and well damaged a couple od wires on the board the ones that are on it and coated

so i need to fix that spot how do i do that

You want to fix electrical circuit traces on the board?  Not likely to be a successful project.  If a screw fell in there, it shorted something and it will be difficult to fix.  Not even experienced people bother to fix these kinds of problems, because they can take so long to solve.

Sounds like you need to stop floggin that dead horse there and bite your tingue and tell they guy the motherboard does not work.

He will probably just get another one anyway.  Unless he says well no lets bring it back and then they find out you blew it up.

Your not going to repair the tracks on the board as this will cause even more damage to it due to the heat of a soldering iron.  Unless you have a £500 soldering iron and lots of soldering experience.  I mean do soldering on a regular basis.  Chnaces are ven if you do have that experiecne that some of the IC's (integrated circuits) have damage to them to.  

I suggest you follow these guidelines if your going to install another on in the future as there are a few things you need to be careful with and its worth paying that extra bit of time to learn them.  At least if you do your homework then you will not have problems of this nature in the future.  Everyone makes mistakes its how we learn!  Heres that link i found for you, have a read and see if there is anything you didn't do!

Looks good, but dual processor motherboards don't come cheap, as you're finding out.  If you trust ebay, you may find it cheaper, but then you shouldn't be shopping there unless you know how to protect yourself against scammers.

Some key things to remember - there are scam buyers out there who don't intend to pay or who use stolen credit cards.  Your best defense is to look at feedback, and the buyer's patterns of purchases in the past.  Keep in communication with the buyer, make it clear what is being sold, deliver what was promised, and it should work out well.

I thnk you need to realize something important.  I am pretty darned positive that 2 late model celerons (your 2 1.4 ghz chips) will NOT work in a dually motherboard.  I am pretty sure that intel changed the celeron or something aroiund the 500-600mhz era and made them uncapable of running in a multi-cpu motherboard.

The old chips (like your 366 chips) would run fine in boards like the abit BP6 but I really dont' think you will be able to use 2 of the new celeron chips yoiu have in the same board.  If you had 2 pentium 3's then yes, that would work, but i think that 2 celerons won't work due to changes that Intel made to the chips.

Also, are these socket 370 chips?  If they are, and you find out that they can work in a dual processor board, then you might want to look at a VP6 dually board that has been recapped:  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=42005&item=6706641836&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

But I still think that you wil only be able to use those celerons as single chips on their own motherboards since they weren't designed for multicpu setups so I dont' think you will be able to award any points with your requirements (dual cpu motherboard that will support 2 1.4 ghz celeron chips)

Yep, ebay charges a fee to sell; it costs nothing extra to buy - that's how ebay makes so much money.  Prices of components do vary over time, but not a lot for short durations - what you see is the company trying to adjust for supply and demand, I suppose.

Since you're new here, try NOT to throw in extraneous text in your post, because this is all saved in a database for people to search in the future, and all that clutters things up when people are looking for a solution.  Watch how other top-rated experts post and follow their lead.
