  1. Well today my new Athlon Xp 1800+ arrived and when I put everything together and turned it on, all the lights beeped and flashed it also booted up I believe. However, the monitor did not show the first screen that usally comes on showing the type of processor, the amount of RAM and so on. So I switched monitors with my other computer, and the same thing happened. So I switch video cards and still it happened. I also cleared CMOS and the same thing happened. So I now I just decided to put my old cpu back in so I could come here and get some help. So what could the problem be.

    +3.3V = 20A
    +5V = 30A
    +12V = 10A
    +5VSB = 2A
    -5V = 0.5A
    -12V = 0.8A

    What screen did it show if any? How many beeps are you hearing when you go to startup? Look in your motherboard manual & see what that number of beeps mean.
  3. It sounded like it booted up as usual, but I did not see anything.

    Mine does the same thing. Right after the point, of showing the amount fo RAM and CPU speed, the screen will show.
  5. some boards, like all my intels have a quickbook/silent boot options that turn off that screen so you dont have to look at it all the time but if you hit tab it flashes back
