Abit NF7-S2 Motherboard and AMD XP 3200 CPU
Posted on 2004-11-12
I bought a Abit NF7-S2 Motherboard and AMD XP 3200+ (400) CPU but am having problems getting it to work.
When I go to turn it on I hear the fan running like it's powering up but nothing shows up on the screen and I don't hear the hard boot any further. I did try clearing my cmos and updating my bios to the latest version but that didn't work.
I then decided to pull out the 3200+ CPU and put my old AMD XP 1600+ CPU in to see if that works and it powered up fine.
I then proceeded to put back the 3200+ and got the same problem. I can't even get to my bios.
Is there a setting I'm missing? Or is the CPU that I just bought possibly bad?
Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.
I'm also running Mushkin 512mb pc-3200 DDR (400) ram in my computer (1 stick) and a WisperRock IV cpu fan for my cpu.
