    well, i'm stumped ** for now **

    any help would be great

    AMD XP 2600+
    ASUS A7N8X-Deluxe motherboard
    256 DDR400

    this was basically my old system before I got new motherboard / processor
    Trying to put it into a new case and it gives out error

    Boots up
    Shows the 2600+ as being only 1250 Mhz
    proper amount of ram

    Then gives out error(s)
    Keyboard error or no keyboard present
    Keyboard is locked out - Unlock the key
    CMOS checksum error - Defaults loaded
    WARNING !!CPU have been changed

    I did NOT change anything other than the case the board is going into
    I have a "keyboard lock" amongst my other pins for HDD LED / PWR Switch / PWR LED / RESET etc..... but, I don't actually have any wires from the case ( this one or old one ) that ever went into that

    Anyone have any thoughts ??

    turned out to be dust on wake on keyboard jumper on the board
    crazy mixed up dust anyways LOL

    I'd first try clearing the CMOS using the clear jumper. If that doesn't work, remove the MB from the case and try firing it up on the bench, you may be shorting something with the installation into the new case.
