Re: motherboard or cpu.
Does it include onboard video? If it's not beeping you may need to just reset the CMOS. To do that, look for a jumper, near the battery, that's probably labeled JP5. It will have two of three pins jumpered. Move the jumper to the other side and turn the power on, just for a moment, then turn the power off. Move the jumper back to it's original position and turn the power back on. That's all you need to do to reset the motherboard's BIOS to it's factory defaults. You'll hit the <del> key to enter the BIOS setup so that you can set the system time and enable peripheral settings.
One other thing, double check your RAM. It needs to be DDR2 RAM (PC2700 or PC3200, probably) in order for it to work. If you're running Windows, I recommend, at least, 512MB.
One note, if you're able to power the system on and off with the front power button it means the motherboard is probably working. The only way to determine if it's the processor is to try another one.

Hello Hardyjosef, Below is the beep code chart for the mini 10 systems. No POST If the system does not perform a Power-On Self-Test, there are various things to look for: 1.Check that the system has a power light. 2.If the system has no power light, ensure it is plugged into AC power. Remove the battery. 3.If the system has power but is not performing a POST, Check for one of the following Beep code errors. Beep Code Description Failure Coverage 1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure. BIOS Chip Motherboard Failure or ROM Error 2 No RAM Detected No Memory Detected 3 Chipset Error (North and South Bridge Chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel platform); Chipset Error Motherboard Failure Time-Of-Day Clock test failure. Gate A20 Failure Super I/O Chip Failure Keyboard Controller Test Failure 4 RAM Read/Write Failure Memory Failure 5 RTC Power Fail. COMS Battery Failure 6 Video BIOS Test Failure Video Card Failure 7 CPU Cache test failure CPU Failure 8 LCD LCD Failure 4.With the power off and the system unplugged, remove all CRUs from the system and reconnect the AC adapter to the system and try again. Try reseatting the memory to see if that will resolve the issue. If not, the motherboard may be bad and will need to be replaced. If you need another motherboard you can call the Dell Spare Parts Department at 1-877-717-3355 to purchase one. Thank You, Dell-Jesse L Dell Social Media and Communities

There's a chance of overclocking, ram failure, bios failure, cpu overheat, power supply problem,etc.. But in the first step, remove everything which are inserted on the board, like power cables, processor, rams, bios battery, Pci cards, sound cards, etc.. and clean them using soft brush, also clean the mother board, there might be dust clogging the chipsets like resistors, transistors and capacitors, and reinsert everything after cleaning... I hope this will help if there's only a small problem except circuit short... Good luck...
Disconnect everything from the motherboard except the power supply, CPU and power switch.
Turn on the computer. You should hear 3 beeps because you removed the memory.
If you don't hear any beeps, check the power supply. Check all the connections. Did you connect the 4 pin power? Did you skimp on it? A common mistake is to get a cheap, high-power supply. Just because the box says it's 1000 WATTs doesn't mean that will carry a steady load.
It's either a bad motherboard or processor. If you have another processor that is supported on that board and you know it works, try it. If it boots return your CPU for a good one.
Unfortunatly, if it doesn't boot with a known-good processor that just proves the board is bad; it doesn't prove your CPU is good. You may have more issues.
have you tried to isolate what the cause of the problem? first check the video card if is properly inserted into the slot, and check the memory, and cable from CPU to monitor if it is connected properly. then boot your system. And try to observe this beep error code this might help you locate where the problem is.

90% in d845gvsr cpu dry problem , when we press fan after that swicth on the system may be it's giving display solution is bake cpu socket at 200 digree C, after it's working fine otherwise there is no solution. cpu socket problem like hang, restart, some time display , just bake the cpu socket with hot air gun or bga machine,
