The quickest way is to connect the motherboard to a power supply, attach video (and video card if there is not one on-board), keyboard, mouse, and memory and turn it on. The screen should show the video subsystem first, then it will either show a system information screen or a pretty logo. You SHOULD get an error that the floppy drive is not working. If so, that means that the motherboard is OK. If you get no video at all, and it has on-board video, check your jumpers to make sure the onboard video is not disabled. If it IS enabled and there is still no picture, just put some butter on it, it is toast! Steve
