Grey = CPU is working,
Blue = Chipset fault.

Sorry to hear this :-(

Has the CF adapter arrived? If so did you plug it in the right way round?

Steve.

Aye, as steve said.

Also, what about the card, if you remove it, does it work.

NO, not yet.

You can try a burn in if you have a chipset fault. Sometimes it happens that the smd comes loose and needs to be BURNed again. This means heated till melting point of tin.

This is a last resort option! 50% chance it works or not.

Remove all external parts, so only the motherboard and chips that a SMD. Remove cpu, paula, etc.

Heat up your oven up to 200 degrees. Place the motherboard into aluminium foile so it's completly cover in it. Put it into the oven and leave it there for about 10 minutes. NOT MORE!!

Take it out and put it down to cool. Lateron remove the foil and try.

Good Luck.
