I have the following: AMD Sempron 2800+ socket 754 BIOS AMI v.1.5 MSI RS482M-IL series mobo (MS-7145) Western Digital 40gb HDD (4 years old) WinXP Home ATX form factor 350w PSU?
Question: On the AMD site it shows MSI MS-7135 but not MS-7145 (mine) as recommended mobo's. On the MSI site both models show support for the AMD processor. When installed, the computer will not boot the OS at all. I checked the BIOS and it shows the HDD is there but no matter how I try, I can not get the system to boot. If I reinstall the old mobo, it boots just fine. What could the problem be? Thank you. George
