Well, I finally figured out the booting problem with the help of the group.\nOne of the processor pins was bent. It was that simple. The pin being so\nsmall made it difficult to see and I couldn't feel it when placing the\nprocessor on the slot. I wish I had a magnifying glass. Anyhow it booted to\nthe soft menu. Here lies the next problem. The hardware change sends me to\na black windows screen stating that it can't boot because of a hardware\nchange. I tried all options but it won't start up XP. How can I get around\nthis last problem. Thanks again.
