    I purchased what appears to be an unfortunate mb/cpu combo - an athlon XP 2900 and abit KV7-V. The thing crashes [blank screen, no beeps] before windows 98 can load. Am using 400 watt power supply and pc3200 memory- both new and not junk. Suggestions?

    Well, I solved the problem on my own. I bought this marriage made in hell combo from Tiger Direct. I advise you not to repeat my error. The KV7 board probably works just fine with a Semperon processor. I assure you it sucks with an Athlon XP cpu.
