Just built a pc with the soyo kt400 dragon ultra black edition mobo with athlonxp 1500 processor 256 mb ddrram 40 gb western hdd, floppy, cdrw,dvdrom gforce2 mmx400 64mb agp graphics card and when it boots up i get a single post beep but the monitor never comes out of standby but when i use the jumper and clear the bios and reboot i get a single post beep and everything begins to work as it should but right after it detects all the drives it comes up with a cmos checksum error and loads the default values and everything works fine but when i go into the bios and make changes and then save and exit when it boots up the monitor doesnt come out of standy i have tried several video cards and replaced the battery for the bios but still have the same problem could the bios be failing on this new board? I have two of the mobo's same mobo and they both do the same thing

Hi,

Have you tried powering up the system without any add-on cards (except video card)? Also make sure all your IDE devices are jumpered correctly (master/slave settings)

Also if system has integrated video card, remove the AGP card and use the integrated to test. If it works, make sure the integrated video card is disabled in the BIOS when using the AGP card.

Is the CPU and memory well seated?

Check out these Soyo articles:
During Boot-up, I encounter a "CMOS memory Checksum error".
One beep and nothing comes up on the monitor

yes cpu and mem are seated good , the board also has a feature called FOC which turns the pc off if it gets too hot or the cooling fan quits working could it be the problem? , someone told me that if my fan wasnt spinning fast enough according to that feature of the board it wont let it boot...seems odd to me though havent tried it yet but i guess it is worth a shot

I have heard that too! Try this:

Power up the system while holding down the insert key on your keyboard and Disable FOC (Fan-Off Control) function under "PC Health Status" in BIOS.
