I just built a new 1.0 Ghz Athalon system. I am using an ECS board. When I have the processor in, and I turn the power on at the power supply..the green led for a power source comes on. If I then hit the power switch on the tower, the light goes dim for a second and then bright again, nothing else happens. If I remove the processor, and hit the power switch on the front of the tower...the cpu fan comes on, the power supply fan comes on, the hard drive spins etc. What gives? Is the processor the problem or could there be something else I am doing wrong?
There is also another problem. In neither of these situations does the monitor display any information for BIOS setup. The monitor is plugged into an AGP card that I installed since the board does not have on board VGA...is this problem simply because of a processor problem or what?
Thanks for any help...
