    CPU dead?

    Mkay, so I take my PC apart last night to give it a clean up and re-build, to make sure things are nice and neat. I put it all back together and then nothing comes up on the screen....hmmmm.

    My first though was the graphics card, but it was starting up fine, as was everything else...except there was no bleeps or anything. So I took everything out, just the CPU in and there was nothing, no panicky beeps because of no RAM and it was silent, just the slight noise from the CPU fan.

    Cant see it being anything else tbh, tried it with different sticks of RAM, and still no different, just sounds like the CPU is completly dead. Luckily its under warranty so I can just send it back and get it replaced.

    Just want a second opinion on this..just to be certain

    hey dude, thats a definate motherboard problem. I had this with my old board (gave me an excuse to upgrade ), you should RMA the motherboard I reckon the CPU is fine. I havea bent CPU pin on my AMD64 3500+ because of my old motherboard and it boots fine with no problems whatsoever (CPU's are durable, motherboards are not )

    Are you getting the green light on the motherboard, and are the fans spinning up?

    I agree with above post, you should try clearing the CMOS (page 2-18 of the manual). If that doesn't help, post back with additional info about the behaviour (if any) when you power it up.

    Edit: And as a last resort, you should try it with the board out of the case (in case it is grounding on one of the standoffs). Make sure you place it on something non-conductive (i.e. cardboard) first though.
