mobo i assume?

take close watch of these:

jumper settings: one false jumper and the whole board could fry.

HDD/Floppy cables - most new mobos and cables are one-way, but make sure anyway that they are facing the correct direction, incorrect placement may cause your system not to boot oy a device to be preminantly damaged.

Power - if its AT, black to black on the power cables.

and finally, if it wont post, DO NOT LEAVE IT ON, and do not try to reboot it more than once. turn off asap. check jumpers, connections. try another VC (i always keep a PCI VC around, because some mobos wont post with an AGP one on first boot/flash/clear.

anyway, have fun.

Jumpers generally have 2 positions they can be put in. If there's more than two options for something, it will require several jumpers. There will be 3 pins on the motherboard. Putting the jumper (small piece of plastic with 2 holes w/ metal contacts which are connected) on pin 1 and 2 will complete a different circuit than putting it on 2 and 3, thus a different setting (the easiest way I know to explain it).

POST codes are the beeps your computer makes when starting up. If it won't boot, it will often have a code of beeps to give a hint to the problem. There should be a list of these in the motherboard manual.
