Hey everyone,, I have a t1742 emachine that came wiht the Imperial Motherboard Gl inside the tower. Here is my problem.. the mobo died out so I bought a "Intel® D845GVSR "Sea Breeze" Mainboard" to replaced the dead one.
I have been having trouble getting this board to work properly (as in no repsonse even when I beleive it should power up. I do see one green lighton the mobo and one red light). Can anyone please tell me if the board I am trying to use is feasible or impossbile? I find it a tadcomfuing since the problem is the correct settings of the jumpers for the LED, HDD and Power Switch on/off jumpers. Can anyone with a moment to spre guide me through this issue. or give me the right directions please..

I should have simply stated. IS the Seagate MOBO able to work instead of the imperial mobo that is came with?

Sure we can help!
I read your comments and I'm wondering if your power supply unit (PSU) is dead and that's why you believed your old mobo was dead. Were you able to test the new "Intel® D845GVSR "Sea Breeze" Mainboard" in another computer to confirm that it's working? Did you try that with the old Imperial G mobo as well?
I'm not too sure about the color of the lights you're seeing...sounds like a wiring problem at first thought but it could be something else.
My advice is to see if the PSU is still good and the individual mobos.

I'd lose any add on cards for now and use onboard video and sound. Set bios to defaults. AGP aperture can be 64GB, maybe less if you are short of memory.
Main connection block is bottom right below battery. 10 pin ostensibly.
Here's how mine looks, Nexgen 3 case.
Top left goes blue/white power light.
Next along is Black/white power switch. Last pin blank.
Bottom row left, red/white hard drive indicator, next 3 pins unconnected.
green motherboard led light indicates standby power at least.
Think you could lose usb and sound connectors for now as well.
Hope it helps..
EDIT: Intel link for supported processors (It's a worry for your 1.7 Celeron....)
Read that Intel dropped support for 18micron 1.7 and 1.8 Celeron microcodes in latest BIOS revision due to lack of space.
