I just got
SOLTEK EQ3704SG AMD Socket A(462) with a AMD Athlon XP 2800+ 333MHz FSB Socket A Processor I am trying to put this thing together but it's not starting up. Lights come on but it doesn't boot up. In-case fan is barely turning but when I take out the CPU it starts full power. Did I get wrong CPU for the motherboard????

That is the correct processor for that motherboard.
see the motherboard description:
CPU Socket AMD Socket A(462)

and see the processor:
CPU Socket Type Socket A

Hmm i also saw by the power supply is only 250 watt.....hmm that doesnt seem like enough for all that storage and devices.

Does the machine come with a processor?

Verify all connections throughout, motherboard power. This can be caused by a loose case cable.

Check the CMOS jumper, most MB's are stored with the jumper set in the reset mode to retain battery life and will need to be set in the normal mode after install. Then you will need to enter the BIOS and set the Date, Time, & Defaults.

I did what you said but same problem. I tried another brand new CPU and same problem. I tried 350W power supply and same problem. What's confusing is that it looks like its working when cpu isn't in there!!!!!!
