Got it on b grade few days ago to save money after buying all new kit(i know but i wanted up and running after buying parts over the space of a month).
The system build seemed to go well,installed xp etc.Then booted up later and found my 8 month old 250 gig samsung hard drive had died(tried in another pc etc).
So made a partition on another drive and installed windows.Just after installing and getting to boot up screen it just went blank.On shutdown,plug out and restart same thing.I`ve tried resetting cmos,removed battery,mobo doesnt even beep anymore although all fans are spinning etc.I don`t have a spare pci card to try other vga tho.
My other gear is a64 3700 san diego,hiper type r 580w,radeon 1800xt,2x ide hard drives and some spare samsung ddr333 from old machine till i can afford some gskill.
Looks like its goosed then,but not sure whether to go for a brand new one or another brand,wouldn`t mind a go at a bit of overclocking for san diego and memory.
Any suggestions? cheers

Installed new a8ne sli se mobo and everythings fine.
Was in local shop and bloke is going to try a new processor on the old one, and if it works,flash the bios with the latest one.After a scout on net this seems to have worked for some people,worth a go i reckon the premium looks a nice board
