I bought a P4 2.4 Ghz processor and ECS ELITEGROUP motherboard combo. Had to assemble CPU to motherboard myself, and with everything connected, and I mean everything down to the 4 pin 12v power cable that only P4 compatible power supplies have. I use an All in wonder 9600 128 mb graphics card, and have a sony vaio monitor and an auroravision low radiation monitor. Neither of these monitors come out of standby mode. The orange light never turns green, despite the spinning disks in the hard drive obviously doing their thing. There is no FSB switch on the motherboard, like you'll find with AMD supported motherboards, so what I am wondering is, what am I overlooking? Why can't my monitor click over and show me my bios screen? It doesn't come out of standby even with a PCI graphics card or my other AGP card. The motherboard manual says that the AGP 8x slot supports only the latest 1.5v AGP cards. Can this be of use to me? Is my killer graphics card not 1.5v? from ati(.)com System Requirements Intel® Pentium® 4/III/II/Celeron™, AMD® K6/Athlon® or compatible with AGP 8X (0.8V)/4X (1.5V) slot 128MB of system memory Installation software requires CD-ROM drive DVD playback requires DVD drive Interactive Program guide requires Internet connection for listing updates Remote control receiver requires available USB port 1GHZ minimum processor speed for MPEG-2 video capture Sound Subsystem with DirectSound® drivers Operating Systems Support Windows® XP Windows® 2000 Windows® Me Windows® 98 / 98SE* *Windows® Me driver can be installed on Windows® 98/98SE Memory Configuration 128MB of double data rate SDRAM Display Support Two VGA displays simultaneously or One VGA display connected with a TV or VCR.
