can anybody please help me. i am building a new system for a friend, i have a bit of experience in this having built 20-30 systems, but am having problems with this one! straight away i noticed that there was no agp warning light beneath the slot. according to the manual there should be. i wondered if this may somehow break the circuit (i'm no electronics wizard!) i am not getting anything but an initial click from the board, no sound, no bios, nothing on screen. the onboard power light works and the cpu fan works but that's it. i tried an old pci graphics card but that didn't work either. all parts used work in my tower except for the m/board. i am pretty sure everything is set up as it should be. the spec is: A7N8X-E deluxe m/board 550w power supply agp nvidia graphics card 2x 512mb elixir 400mhz ddr pc3200 mem sticks amd athlon xp 3200 cpu has anybody any ideas please? thank you shaft.
