so i bought a M825G V9.2A board, its made by PCChips.
it won't boot up , no POST no nothing, the fan attached to the board works though.
i tried using it with two used processors i have found one an amd 2000+ and the other a amd 2700+ , i don't even know if either of them is damaged or not. If thats the root of the problem is it possible that i have permanently damaged the board as a result of trying to boot up with faulty processor?

PSU is made by allied, about 300 watts
the processors i've tried to test the board on were an amd 2000+ and a amd 2700+
dont know if either of them are good though.

Of you dont have your 4-pin connector connected(if it has 1) connect it!
But you might have bad CPU like you said or unsupported/bad RAM.
But normally it beeps if there is a prob. so u might wanna check ur video 2 just in case.

i connected the 4pin connector, doesn't make a difference , also no beeps.
i have a hunch that its the CPU but what i'm worried about is whether trying to boot with a bad CPU damaged the motherboard.

Hi fetticinealfred, I don't think the cpu has damaged the board but when you change processors you always need to clean off the old and reapply new thermal paste. First we need to get the board set up. This board has both a 20 pin and a 4 pin power connector, if your power supply has a 24 pin connector, unhook the four, don't use those in the 4 pin slot, the correct four pin plug should have 2 yellow wires and 2 black wires, are they both hooked up? If you know the speed of the memory and cpu, this board has jumpers on it to adjust the FSB (page 11 in the manual). Make sure the memory is seated securely, just because the holders click in place doesn't guarantee a good connection. Is the powersupply you are using, known to be good? Allied is a cheap brand but might get this thing started. Post back after you check these things. Mike

well i hooked up the 4 pin connector with the 2 yellow wires and the 2 black wires
i also tried adjusting the the jumpers to 100Mhz,133Mhz, and 166Mhz.
the processors were used(untested) so maybe they were the problem.
yes i know not a bright move on my part for getting an untested processor.

The next step would be to bench test the system

Same, I would bench test. My Soyo P4X400 was having same prob. Benchtest was succesful, Bought a new tower and chucked the other one, wasnt gonna bother screwing with the tower, it was to old anyway.
Hope the B.Test, If that wrks and not in a tower u f***ed something up
and u get to and !

Try downsizing the RAM from PC2700 to PC2100. I had a similar problem and when I downsized to slower RAM my PC CHips mobo came alive.

Last tests would be to remove the memory and boot the computer. The motherboard should beep, but if the ps is faulty it might not. Then try another powersupply, just because it spins the fans doesn't mean it is good. If these two things fail, you should have the cpu that is in the computer right now tested, if it tests good then the motherboard is a goner. Mike
