Hello one and all! I have just put together a new build. The MB is a Fox Conn 925XE7AA-8EkRS2, the CPU is a Intel PD 925 3.0 Ghz, Presler, Dual Core socket 775 HH80553PG0804MN which I am not completely sure is compatiable with the MB. The vido card is a ATI Radeon X600XT PCI Express, the RAM is ULTR DDR2, (2)1024 MB 800Mhz. Here is the problem:
Upon startup case led lights up, fans run but no POST BIOS messages on monitor, monitor shows no indication of signal. I have cheched the CPU seating in the socket, PS voltages, and misc wiring conn. in the case.
I removed the video card, the RAM, the CD drives and the sata HD. The connected headphones to the internal spkr pins SPK, SPKJ and listened for POST BIOS beeps but there was not even staic in the headphones let alone beeps.
Anyone have any ideas on how the possible CPU compatibility, and how I can decide if the MB or the CPU is bad?
try moving your ram around to different sockets and with one stick in at a time. my computer did the same when i had a bad stick of ram.

Thanks! I have figured out the problem. The Fox Conn 925 XE MB I purchased does not support my Intel PD 925 dual core cpu. It only supports the Prescott Pentium 4 series so I am looking at other MB's that will support my cpu. Fortunately I bought the Fox Conn board from Starsurplus.com for $50 plus shipping and I may use it to upgrade an existing PC that has a 2.6 Ghz Pentium 4 cpu in it. One thing I learned is that you have to be really careful in reading the MB specs to be sure you interprest what processors are supported.
glad to hear that you got it sorted out
