dothan + dfi; no boot

I went to the post office today to pick up my dothan 1.6 + dfi dothan compatible motherboard.

So when I got home, I wanted to check it out offcourse, play around with it a little bit.

but it didn't boot.
I tried 3 different ram sticks
3 different videocards + onboard video
nothing else is hooked up (except usb mouse + keyboard via the ps2 connectors)
I cleared cmos
I tried with the fsb jumper on auto and 100mhz
the fans that are hooked up to the board spin up.
I loosened the cpu heatsink and just placed it ontop without bolting it down.


What else can I try?

it's not like I have a spare dothan or dothan mobo lying around...

welcome onboard; my DFI NF2 Infinity refused to post also, one day to the next. DFI response: BIOS corrupted itself

raaaaaah something just died :wtf:

speak of the devil hey :grum:


suddenly, setFSB couldn't read the values out anymore.

I reboot and I get single long beeps...




@ calantak : yes, these sockets use a bolt instead of the traditional lever.
