expert help in motherboard and memory needed???



i have a p4 2.5 GHz it was sitting on my tv for more than a year so i bought a second hand motherboard in hope of making a pc (i have an old case so i thought i could use that one) . i have installed all parts correctly and when i turn the power on everything ok but after i installed window xp the screen is strange (bright green) and it can not be used at all, hardly anything can be seen. the memory i have put is correct but higher pc2700 dimm but they have recommended ddr266 (pc2100) . i changed the cd the HDD none fixed the problem. do you think the cause of this strange screen is the memory or something else has anyone ever experienced this??? confused2 many thanks

No, sounds more like VGA problem to me...?

If it's booting with the DDR 2700, it's obviously fine. (Possibly being run at the 2100 speed RAM it prefers...)

I'd change the GFX and start from there...

Drivers up to date?

Just in case...

If you boot into the BIOS, is the screen it's usual blue colour?
