While I still think the cpu is the problem, I doubt the problem is caused by a missing pin. The 939 socket cpu has several pins missing by design. Check the picture below for a comparison - the 939 socket cpu is the one of the right :

Warriorscot - I forgot to mention in my last PM to you what the long beeps mean. According to the manual, continuous long beeps signifies a DRAM error. However, as the system won't beep at all now with all the ram removed, I suspect this may not the problem, or at least, not the only problem!

Yes Samm what you say is true. I took a pic of it so you can see it. To the far left you can see where the pin fell off.

Ah. Ok I take back everything I said in my last post! :tazz:
Well, at least you've been able to confirm that the problem is definately the cpu!

Re. the warranty - look at it this way, the cpu is shot to sh*t. Return it under warranty. The worst that can happen is that they refuse to replace it. Either way, you can't lose & if you're lucky, you'll get a replacement.

Yea thanks for all the help again. I dont want to deal with the hassle and doing the warranty thing so i put it on eBay. I actually got a bid on it even though I advised it is shot. :) Im am looking into the next model up now the 3700+. I think this time I will get some type of service replacement plan. :tazz:

Well you would be better at least trying the warranty, then you can always sell a good chip on ebay and get the money for it as an unopened cpu.
