    Hello everyone.
    I was a little to quick to post that everything was solved.
    I am now back to where I started with no post\nothing.
    However While I was in the belly of the beast I'm sure that I corrected
    any bad connections that I had. I also flashed the bios while I had it
    working. I used the windows method althought I will learn how to flash the
    bios the old fashined way on other older machine.
    The msi k7n2 comes with a d-bracket. I don't know if alot of machines
    comes with that piece of hardware. But it gives the ability to check
    errors through a four light combo. I get an Early Chipset Initialization.
    I'ved moved the chip to the other pc that I'm using to test everything and
    get the same no post/nothing. It doesn't have a d-braket so I can't tell
    if the errors are the same on both machines but it would appear that the
    cpu(amd2800xp) is the culprit. Funny how after I moved it to the test pc
    that it worked fine. What do you think I should do now.
