cpu1: pc100 128ram, p3 700, asus p3v4x
cpu2: pc133 128ram, p3 800, spacewalker
i was swapping mb/chip/ram from one comp to another. now, 1 works..the other doesn't. the one that doesnt work is the asus one. there is no OS on the problematic one. when i power on, the keyboard lights light up once and then the keyboard is inoperatable. Also, i noticed the cpu fan wasn't on. Prior to this, the mb/chip/ram have been operatable... and as far as i know, it was rock solid. the keyboard also works, and i have tried replacing the keyboard... same result. i also double checked the slots. I replaced the power supply... no dice. i have tested the system with only the minimal components (video card,hdd,cpu only). i have tested it with the mb outside of the case. I dont know what to make of this. the system boots up... its goes past BIOS... and to dos... BUT, the keyboard doesn't work and the cpu fan doesnt turn on... and prior to moving the mb/cpu/ram... it was a rock solid system. HELP!
possible solutions: i'm thinking the 2 power supplies i have tried are not powerful enough. But i really don't have anything to base that on. Or i did something to the asus mb while moving it from case to case.
