With no OS you will see something you will see what you were seeingthanks. pressing "DEL" button did the trick. i was worried its a faulty set. i never know without a OS install, I wont see anything.
i managed to use sergei win PE boot disk and use the tools inside and found all components are detected.
BTW @alcw, do you have an URL for the RAM that you used? I still need to order some here.
