I got one of my cpu's(P3 1Ghz) over the weekend and figured I would go ahead and install it to make sure the system worked before I spent the money on the second cpu. I installed the cpu and got everything moved from my current computer to the new one. I turned the power on and it detects my cpu and it was detecting my memory but then it locked up. Eventually it got to the point that it would detect the ram sometimes, partially detect it sometimes, and not detect it or lock up before it detected it(not sure which). I checked all my jumpers probably 15 times and they're correct according to the manual but it's still not working right. Does this sound like a problem that can be fixed or is the board just no good? The board is an Acorp 6A815EPD with Kingston RAM. If this board is shot, that will be 2 bad boards in a row I've gotten, although not from the same company.
