My friend had a Tbird 1200, and all the signs pointed to it being bad. He said he had put on a new heat sink and fan just prior. How do you tell if the cpu got "crushed"? What are some signs to look for. The chip looks normal, just dead.... I am just curious....Thanks
Just because the led doesn't come on doesn't mean anything... I've had my led not come for no reason. When that happens I just flick the master power switch on the back of the psu off and then on... and then my led comes back on. It's weird, I know, but my cpu still works whether or not my led is on.
Thanks everyone....there is no visible damage....the led does light up, but it won't post, and no bios beeps are given, just a blank screen...... I guess the only thing to try is another mobo to see if cpu works or another cpu to see if motherboard is at fault.....
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
