    I am trying to replace the motherboard and processor in my PC and have
    bought a 2.0 Celeron processor and an ECS P4VMM2 board. I'm trying to
    use the SDRAM from my previous build. The only jumper settings I have
    changed are the ones to use SDRAM rather than DDRAM slots, and the
    voltage selector for the memory.

    When I power up the fans spin but there is no output to the monitor,
    no beeps - no indication that anything is running other than the fans
    and the power LED. How can I go about diagnosing the problem?

    also what is the minimum i need to get some kind of output - should i
    see/hear something with just the processor and motherboard installed?

    clear your bios...

    unlplug the power supply, and pop the little battery off the board for a
    couple minutes.

    put it back together and powerup (the littlt batter must be installed before
    you power up)
