Ok this started when I received my new case and power supply in the mail 3 days ago, I unplugged all my peripherals, transferred everything to the new case, and went about plugging everything in (i must say i scratched my motherboard in this process which led me to a decision I will talk about shortly.)
Alright, well after I finished installing everything, I pushed power... no post. I turned it off, checked the connections, no post, freaked out, unplugged everything, dropped down to all different levels of barebone starts, using my old power supply, still no posting, this led me to believe that my motherboard had been damaged.
So, I went ahead and ordered a new motherboard, got it in today, went about the whole process again, still no posting, no beeps, no nothing, went on to realize i made the noob mistake of plugging the cpu in without pulling back the socket lever, well after fixing a few bent pins i went on to try again, no post, went on to trying this with both power supplies, etc. Well, I am not sure where to go on to now, I don't think its the cpu, but am not unwilling to get a new one, I just do not want to get a new one and find out that the same problem still exists and do not want to take my build into any repair shops until i have exhausted all options on my own, I simply do not have another build lying around to go and plug pieces in to figure out what works and what doesnt.
cpu: amd phenom II triple core 2.6ghz
Mboard: ASUS M4A77TD (previous mboard: asus m4a78t-e)
Vcard: evga geforce gtx 260
ram: g. skill 4x2gb ddr3 1333
psupply: corsair cmpsu 650tx
any new ideas would be appreciated as to what my options are or anything else i can do.
