Are you saying you have tried your processor in two known good motherboards and neither board will work with your processor?

Either your processor is bad or it does not work in those motherboards.

First of all, check if there are any inflated capacitors, if there is even one- ditch MBO, other capacitors will soon follow. If no inflated capacitors proceed with these diagnostic steps: 1/ disconnect all peripherials (DVD, HDD, card reader...), leave only MBO, PSU and RAM (and CPU of course); if nothing happens 2/remove CMOS battery (CR2032) for 20-30 sec with power cord disconected from computer, that will reset BIOS; 3/ take out RAM sticks, then, if you have more than one stick, try with each stick separately (it might be faulty RAM); 4/power on MBO without any RAM-if speaker is present it should give BEEP signals; 5/ try with different PSU, many power supplies are faulty even when they do give power to MBO.
If nothing of above does not help than you have faulty MBO, because CPUs are so rare to fail that in my 10 years of experience in PC service I had 3-4 fried CPU-s, and even that was because costumer tried to clean PC, removed CPU cooler and than incorrectly placed it back or didn't put thermal paste afterwards. asrock-g31m-s-no-display-booting-yuc33qzjuwfqgyyin4u45syc-4-0.jpg

Cpu fan running but the mother board does not respond


Remove/disconnect everything (Ram, Cables, Power Supply, Battery, Processor, Pci cards, Display cards if there's one, etc.) from the motherboard, and after while, reconnect/put them on the motherboard again. Make sure you correctly installed the Ram and it's working. Also don't forget to connect both the power supply cables (20 pins connector and 4 pins connector) to the board. Now reboot your system, can you hear anything (beeps)? If this doesn't help, your nearest culprit to the problem is Display card. Good luck

Changed cpu on an abit va-10 mb but the fsb stays at 266


Unless the mobo is compliant with a front side bus speed of 333mhz, the cpu you have will only run at 266mhz max, in other words the cpu will down-clock to the 266mhz bus clock and therfore run more slowly. check with the mbo handbook, or on CMOS tosee if yoy can change the fsb setting. ask for more help if needed.Can you give me the full code of the mobo ?

Nothing Happens...period


Did you install the 8 brass needed stand-off's & screwed the board down. Nothing underneth the board can touch the case back. I don't see a mention of the 24Pin power cable to ATX1. Check the cmos jumper pg.1-6 of the manual. It should be on Pin 1&2, & not 2&3. Check Red switch on PSU make sure it is set to 115v. You have memory. I gather 1 Dimm but if you have 2 pull one & try. Try the other dimm slot. The last thing I can think of would be the three wire CPU fan & thermal grease over the CPU & God forbid a broken pin somewhere on the CPU.
Good hunting & best hopes.
