I am building a computer for my sister to use for general use. I'm using an old board. Problem is I have a socket 754 K8N4-E motherboard with Athlon 64 3200+ cpu it also has 2gb of ram and I can't get it to post. I tried different video cards both PCI-E and regular pci. I know the ram works because I used it in other motherboards. I tried resetting the BIOS with psu unplugged and battery removed for more than a minute and got no success. I am not sure if it is the CPU or the board. I hope it isn't the board though. Can someone help me?
