I would like more information about your problem: Is it totally dead, do you get BIOS? for starters.
First of all check all connections.

A new AGP mobo tends to have a very stiff agp socket. If the graphics card has not been pushed in properly this can cause a failure to boot, but without more info (as requested above), such as model number or board, cpu type, etc, there are a whole host of other possible causes for this. (incorrect CPU type, Incorrect memory type, etc etc)

Check the cmos jumper setting is normal pins 1&2

When you say totally dead: Do you have power? Some boards need two connections from the power supply.
I think someonewould get to the bottom of the problem for you if you listed more detail.

Here is the info you asked for; Pcchips M848A Sempron 2400+ (1.66Ghz)(socket 462), Memory: 256MB, 266MHZ fSB, Graphics: Radeon Atlantis 9200 SE.

Sidcar, can you describe more what you mean?

I didn't give too much information wneh i first posted this topic for discussion, so here it is I hope you can help.
I installed my Pcchips M848A Motherboard along with a Radeon 9200E SE graphics card and Sempron 2400+ processor. When i first turned it on it the the heat sink and fan and the case fan were working fine. I was able to eject the CD ROM but I couldn't get the bios to boot on the screen. I checked all connection and then turned it by on. This time i had no power at all. Does anyone have any extra suggestions to help?
