Make sure that little connector for the power button is hooked up the right way on you mobo. Sometimes I have it backwards and it wont power on.

Yup, also make sure the mobo is not grounded in any way.

I am always changing motherboards. I killed a brand new Gigabyte mobo by leaving an extra brass mount on the case for mounting the motherboard. It did not die at first but by the time I figured out what I had done and removed the extra mount and re-installed the motherboard it was unresponsive.... :o

Yeah, I did that once too. :o

Are you sure? I have the exact same mobo and I had the exact same problem. It turns out I mounted the heatsink backwards. (omg) After mounting it correctly everything works great.

Its not a bad mobo for the price. I was trying to decide between this or a DFI mobo. Since the DFI was $20 more and this one had 13 positive reviews I went with ECS. Its got all the options my VNF3-250 had, but the fsb only does 240mhz.
