i got the old a7v133 1.05 with the 1009 bios. it currently has a 900 athlon.

i also have a athlon 1ghz i bought for cheap - new. i went to put it in. power goes on, i get the cpu fan, the green light on my mb (normal) and just a black screen. no post beep or nothing.

i pop back in my 900 and its fine posts great. i checked over everything and it looks fine, no dammage to the cpu...i dont believe its dead, im wondering if its something in the bios.

any ideas?
