  1. Yep...

    Just a bought a chaintech 7vif4...same processor AMD athlon XP 2900...

    If I press the button it will turn on for a second or two (fans will spin and everything) then they will stop spinning but the light on the front will stay on...screen doesnt come up or anything...

    At first I thought it was an overload of the power supply...but I took out the graphics card and the network it cant be that...

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks puke:

    Sounds like a bad motherboard or chip.

    thats the last thing I want to hear...what would bring forward these suspicions? And if it were one of these how would I determine which one.

    Just a note...I put the AMD k7 back in...and the same thing happens...I guess that rules out the processor?
