  1. well i dug out an old SIS 530 motherboard which i had from an old 500mhz IBM comp i bought years ago.

    what i plugged to it.
    10GB hdd
    CDrom drive
    nvidia riva TNT
    10/100 ethernet card
    256 mb ram

    basicly my problem is that i shows nothing when i turn it on.. i hear it boot and i heard the harddrive work for a few sec and then i just see black screen. i used the onboard VGA port and the one on the graphic card still i see nothing. i have no manual for the board so i have no idea if ive connected everything correctly, even so if i had it should atleast show SOMETHING? at the moment my main problem is that it does not display a single thing.

    what should i do :(

    btw it also says "sis 5595" on the board in smaller print

    What was the reason you changed motherboards?
