    Im having trouble with this computer, pretty much at every step, it went from a simple upgrade of the motherboard and processor to upgrading processor, mb, memory, and case. Heres some details, i purchased a mb, cpu and memory of ebay off ebay, it guarenteed the mb worked fine...it got here and the processor was shot, it still booted but once windows started loading, it froze, then i checked bios and it was running at 186 degrees...so i tossed the processor and the fan. I got a upgrade of the processor from AMD XP 1600+ to 2100+ and a new fan. Put it in and black screen of death (nothing at all). I removed the SCSI cables and removed the memory to see if i got any beeping from the internal speaker but nothing at all...the motherboard doesnt have on board video, so im using a AGP expansion card for that...any suggestions?

    Ive also took out the new processor and put the old one back in and i still get nothing. I also realized that BIOS needed to be flashed to use the new processor, but i havent done that yet...
