|This is my first post on your site, but I have been a long time reader. I recently started a rebuild on an Gateway 554GE with a literally burned 2x2 CPU plug. (I found a screw lodged between the board and the case) I tossed the mobo , PSU, and the CPU and bought a used Intel D915GUX mobo, a tested working used Intel Celeron D 3.06GHz/256/533 CPU, and an off-brand new PSU.|
The problem is that I re-assembled everything, but the system will not power on with the CPU 2x2 plugged in? All I get is the green light on the board and the blue power button light. If I leave it unplugged all lights and fans come on but the system will not boot without the CPU. I have removed the system from the case and have set it up outside the case to be sure it was not shorting out, but still get the same results. I also have tried a second known good PSU and another mobo known good, and another CPU 3.00Ghz Intel Celeron as well. I am using the integrated graphics on the mobo. I really am stumped on this. I have seen a couple of other post similar to this, but no answers. Any help would be appreciated.
