|Well I've exhausted all i can think of but here's a post i found relating to my issue:|
>The processor cannot be faulty but still if you want to check it, remove the CPU Cooler fan. Then turn on the PC.
>Place your finger on the processor for 2 seconds. You should find the processor heating up. Then turn it off immediately. If this works then your processor is good.
>Remember not to leave it ON for more than 5 secs.
The lights on my mobo and all other peripherals seem to be working ok (not sure about the ram tho - I've tried both 1 x 2gig stick as well as both 2gig sticks)
But I felt the cpu with the fan off (which isnt working other than a brief flicker on turning power on and off) after a few seconds and it's still stone cold.
Does this mean its the cpu that isn't working or could there be a power, ram or mobo issue that im overlooking?
