Three things I can think of to try. First, make sure that the extra P4 power
plug is connected. It is located next to the first memory slot. Second, try
resetting the CMOS jumper. Some boards need to have this done if you change
a CPU, and I am assuming the board may have possibly been tested with a
different CPU at the factory. Third, you might have a marginal power supply.
Try another known working unit with the extra P4 power plug. Please post
back with your results.

We, my son-in-law, grandson, and myself are trying to build a gaming
machine. So far we have assembled the following:
CPU is intel Pentium 4 3.0G (800Mhz)
Mobo is Aopen AX4C Max, Intel 875P Chipset Ultra ATA133 ATX Form FActor
w/1AGP98X), 5xPCI + a lot of other stuff
RAM is Crucial / Micron 512MB PC3200 400Mhz CL3 DDR DIMM (1 stick)
Vid card is ATI | Radeon 9800 Pro 128M 8X RTL
Harddrive is WD Caviar 205 BA 20.5gegs connected to mobo with 80 wire
flat cable, just formatted for fresh install
Monitor is a 17 inch KDS Visual Sensations 19" and has been working
flawlessly for a while.
3.5" A drive
When it is switched on the fans start working, an LED on the mobo flashes
once and another comes on steady, nothing on the monitor except it's on self
test which comes on if nothing else comes on, and a squeky scratchy voice on
the pc speaker which sounds like it's saying "CPU idi" or "CPU edi" or maybe
"CPUvdi" or no telling what.
The mobo and cpu were ordered as a compatable unit from mwave.com but not
assembled. The cpu had an intel inside label on the flat side that mounts
to the fan heat sink. That label was removed. The ram was ordered
seperate. The monitor and HDD were on a previously owned computer and
Can anyone suggest a solution or advice on the compatability of these parts.
