    Similar to another post on this board - I too have a 9VJL3 that won't
    post. I am using components that work in another system.

    I don't get any beep codes whatsoever. No video - no nothing. Power
    is getting to the board because the CPU fan spins up - that is about

    One potential problem might be my power supply. It was sufficient for
    an Abit KT7A - however it only has one 20-pin ATX connector - not the
    additional 4-pin and 6-pin connectors like on my 9VJL3 board.

    Could this be a potential problem?

    You wont get a post until you load the bios defaults......thats the way it
    works on any systems I have built.

    I bet you its your video card it doesnt like...try it an ATI
    card by any chance? There are lots of people who cannot get these to work
    with chaintech mb``s myself included.

    Look on their site....its all Geforce cards....see any ATI or even a mention
    of them?

    It smells fishy to me and to others I know!

    I had an ATI 32mb DDR card which works perfect in 2 systems I
    would not work in the chaintech 9cjs and I tried everything including
    increasing the voltage slightly after advice but still nowt!

    It a conspiracy if u ask me!

    Pulled from Intel's website:
    "All Pentium 4 processor-based systems require the standard 2x10,
    20-pin ATX power connector as well as the 2x2, 4-pin 12V connector. Most
    ATX form factor-based motherboards with fully loaded system
    configurations may also require the 1x6, 6-pin connector. Consult the
    motherboard documentation to determine power supply requirements."

    You're going nowhere until you get a new power supply that matches the
    ATX 12V spec.
