Moved house. Computer WAS working, after the 7 hr drive, it wasn't. I turn it on and the fans spin, the lights come on, but no display.
There are no beeps to warn me of errors.
I tried a new Vid card, no change.
I tried a new PSU, no change.
I pulled out all the IDE + SATA cables, no change.
I pulled out all the cards, no change.
I pulled out the RAM, no change and still no beeps.
I pulled the HSF off the CPU (socket 478) and the CPU came out stuck to the HSF with bent pins.
I carefully straightened the pins, reapplied thermal paste, reinstalled CPU + HSF, no change.
How can i tell if it's a dead CPU or a dead MB?
At no time were there any beeps, but the fans and HDD spin and the lights come on. Never any display.
