DELL INSPIRON 3800 PIII 700, WINDOWS XP SP2, 512MB RAM.

I RECENTLY REPLACED THE MOTHERBOARD WITH A NEW ONE. HOWEVER, WHEN I PUT IT ALL TOGETHER AGAIN IT DOES NOT BOOT.
I GET THE LAPTOP ON LIGHT AND NUM, CAP, AND SCROLL LIGHTS FOR ABOUT 2-3 SECONDS AND THEN THEY GO OFF.
MY BATTERY CHARGES OK WITH THIS MOTHERBOARD, WHICH IT DID NOT WITH MY OLD MOTHERBOARD.

MY HD WORKS FINE (I TRIED IT ON A SIMILAR LAPTOP OF MY FRIENDS).

THAT LEAVES BIOS AND CPU. MY OLD BIOS WAS DEAD TOO. THEREFORE I AM PRESUMING MY NEW BIOS IS OK SINCE IT GIVES ME THE POWER AND SIGN OF SOME LIFE IN THE MACHINE.
MY CPU WORKED JUUT FINE ON MY OLD MOTHERBOARD.

WHEN I PUT IT ALL TOGETHER WITH MY OLD MOTHERBOARD, I HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME PROBLEM.

Undecided

PLEASE HELP!
