Make sure the CPU fan is plugged into the header on the motherboard. My board has a feature that will not let the computer run if the fan is not spinning or spinning too slowing (indicating a failure). If it is not connected or plugs directly into a 4 pin HDD ocnnector and not the 3-pin mobo connector this feature will think the fan is dead. Holding INSERT when booting up disables the feature for that startup. Then enter the BIOS and disable it.

I'm not saying your board definitly has this feature. It may not.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
