Hi and Hallo to all,
I had had build more than 5 rigs to this date.
Every other time had no hussle at all, only slight glitches which was being compromised.

I only upgrading this low end rigs just for my dad to use at his outlet.
Only upgraded the MoBo. The previous MoBo is kaput.

1...AsRock N68C GS FX.

The rest are all re used hardwares.
1...AMD Sempron 64 3000+ ---- SDA3000IAA3CN

This Sempron is in the supported processor for this MoBo.

The most bottom of the list....LOL

2...PSU Cooler Master 500

3...DDR2 2x 1G

4...2 HDD

5...CD/DVD rw.

The problem I ecountered is fail to boot up. Nothing happened
Only heatsink fan and chassis fan are working ( chassis I connected from PSU directly...not thro' MoBo )

What are things for me to look at???

Thanking you all in advance.

Could be bad RAM or GFX also. If you have parts to swap, try different RAM in it. If you have a spare card, try that.

Or even the PSU. PSU could have gone bad and took old mobo with it. Really, it's just time to play component swap like others have said.
