After much frustration gave up and put in duron 800Mhz... very slow asus website no help the talk was about heat issues.
When you say shuts down after posts, do you actually see a post screen saying procesor etc? Are you able to enter the bios at all? If you are able to get into the bios check your temperature of your processor *usually found in the PC Health secion*. The Duron works just fine which is weird, btw you did change heatsinks when you went from the barton to the sempron, that is you are using 3 different heatsinks in total?
