Computer Troubleshooting Help (No beep codes)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Earlier today, I was doing general maintenance on my computer, mainly consisting of me getting the dust out of my computer. While doing this, I had my CPU (i7 950) out of my MOBO (Sabertooth X58), and 2 of the pins on the MOBO get a little bent, I was able to get one of them aligned perfectly, while the other was a little less than perfect, this is the only thing I could imagine that would have made my computer stop working. I put everything back together as normal, hooked everything back up, and hit the power button, at first everything was normal, all the fans went on, all the LEDs where on (everything from MOBO LEDs to fan LEDs), but the screen wasn't getting a signal. I then noticed that there weren't any beeps either. I took it apart again, and aligned the other pin to perfection too, then re-assembled, ect... and once again, same problem. I googled it and found out it might be a dead CPU. I re-checked all of my connections thoroughly, everything checks out. Can anyone please help?

Other info:
- GPU: Gigabyte HD6850 (Factory OC)
- Screen hooked up via DVI
- PSU: Seasonic S12 II Bronze

UPDATE: I now noticed that there are two LED's on my motherboard, and found out that they are indicators for bad parts. It says there is something wrong with the CPU and RAM. I can't imagine what would be wrong with the RAM, but there shouldn't be anything. I tested the CPU out in another computer, and although we didn't boot into windows, we where able to get into the BIOS/CMOS so it's not fried, This leads me to believe the motherboard is faulty. I will be testing the RAM and GPU soon as well to make sure it's the MOBO.

Did the bottom of the CPU get dirty? Fingerprint or something? Also closely check all the pins to make sure they are making contact. Inspect them with a mag glass from all angles do it twice just to make sure. Then try again. GL

I don't know if this will help or not but I've had problems in the past where if my GPU wasnt seated firmly on the motherboard it wouldnt boot. You might also check RAM to make sure it's seated as well, you might not have adjusted anything with em but it never hurts to check.

Removed both actually, I double checked, but I'll go ahead and Check again, if that's not it, I'll try what was mentioned in the previous post. Don't think it's the RAM/GPU though, there should be beep codes if that were true, but again, I will still check. Thanks, for the responses. Kepp them coming, I'd really rather figure this out than having to get replacments through the warranties or my own pocket.
