    Looking at the caps. and pulling the CPU and looking at it for a big burn spot under the thermal paste will tell you.

Brookstone pure ion travel - How do I know if it's working properly?

Ionizers are not easy to check. Look for a sparks in a dark room, they are not supposed to spark but some do. Listen for a hissing sound, they use high voltage and some can be heard. Check for the smell that comes from around a copier machine. That is OZONE and it is not supposed to make a lot but if it is, you can smell it.

P4M900T-M2 Motherboard cant display anything on display, Power supply fan & CPU fan is running. I changed processor, RAM, Power Supply, Capacitors around CPU, but am still getting nothing on the...

It seem that changing the mother board was needed to confirm as there seems to be a problem related to non communication of the mother board with the CPU, RAM and sections.
Swap and confirm.

Mother Board

if it has 2 video cards or had 2 might be disabled in bios. if not and it does not boot at all then it could be CPU Powersupply or RAM, i would start with removing RAM and see if it beeps if it does Power Supply migh be ok, put one stick of RAM back in snd see if it boots swap RAM Slots and stic around to make sure its not a RAM Problem. if still no video and just spinning fans its Trial anf error of the CPU and Power Supply i know it **** but if you have a PoSupply tester that would rule that out. if you are savy enough to remove CPU look for burnning and smell for Burn. Good Luck

Mobo does not power up Dead cpu dead mobo?

A dead CPU will not hinder a board from powering up. The board is unlikely to POST. However, you should heard attempts at powering up and immediate shutdown. Or, you will see the PSU comes on but system not boot.

No mobo, but, CPU.

If no failed attempts at boot, no indicator lights, then you have either a failed power supply or DEAD motherboard.

Good luck

T40 hangs after boot up. Sometimes does not show anything on boot

I have a acer travelmate 290 and when i push the power button he start and right after this the processor stop (wont boot) and the light of the cd at the top of keyboard stay open please help me...

It could be many reasons. But worst one could be CPU fan failure. If your CPU fan is not working properly then your computer wont boot but most imp thing is, it could damage your processor coz of overheating.
Another reason may be faulty ram, motheboard problem, hardware failure etc.
so cant say for sure but make sure ur fan is cooling ur processor.
Hope it helps

When i boot Gigabyte K8N-SLI a long beep is heard untill completely booted

Long beeps can indicate a processor or board failure, but i would check your graphics card first, uninstall it in device manager and then remove and reseat the card. Although i think there is mobo failure imminent

Motherboard or CPU dead?

The burning smell (if it was a fishy type smell) may have come from the mobo psu 21 pin connector where you plug in the psu. The connection may not work properly because of melted plastic deposits which may be why you are unable to turn it off at the switch. Just check the old psu connector for signs of rusting pins and mis-shaped connector. If you have a fairly recent mobo and processor ensure that the power supply doesnt need the power supply from the psu, unlike some processors where the power is taken from the ZIF mobo socket.
