Is that anyway to tell weather the CPU or hte MB is bad without swapping out parts cause i have no other parts to swap out.. its an xp 2200+ and a ga-7vrx MB its not grounding out i already tried running the comp out of the case... any suggestions??

I'd say your cpu is dead just because the very same thing happened to my XP 2600+, but luckily I received a brand new one (even a Barton one !) thanks to RMA ;)

I may be wrong, but that's what happened to me...

Remove the RAM, press the power on button, if you hear bips that's most probably because your motherboard is healthy and is telling you that you removed the RAM ;)

Oem CPU ? It's 1 year warranty, no ? Mine was an oem and was replaced... Is you friend's CPU more than 1 year old ? If that's the case, I'm sorry for him :(

But test the motherboard as I said ;)

No offence taken, but you don't know how many people I've seen that never bother to connect the case speaker. And some newer off the shelf PC's don't have the speaker connected (Sony's)

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
