    Hi all,

    My problem: my computer doesnt post

    I have tried my 2 x 512mb PC2700 onto another computer and it worked fine.
    I have tried a different Processor on it which works but didnt.
    I tried a different Graphics card which is new which didnt work.

    I think its my motherboard.

    Any help appricated.

    Will
