trying to startup a 4400+ dual core on a chainthech vnf4 ultra. i do not have an older 64 to help update the bios. i do have the new bios and bios flash utility exe on a bootable cd, but no luck. the power supply is 480 20 pin + 4 pin and all fans and devices are working except the monitor. i am using an older ATI rage pci video card. i wonder if i need to use a pci express video card? the monitor flashes when i power on, but no text. for this project i do not need great graphics. i contacted chaintech, but just got an autoresponse. with the cpu out the power led is solid green. with the cpu installed the power led flashes, which seems to indicate the motherboard/bios does not like the cpu. any ideas?

thanks,
gsn
