processors do not give out easily which only means there is a 70% percent chance that this might be caused by a motherboard problem. This happened to myself. It turns on for around half a second and then nothing. I changed motherboards and now I am using the same processor on a new board. You may also want to check if the processor has any burn or overheat marks. Also check if all the pins on the processor are in tact and aligned. If all is good then there is a chance the board is already busted. Hope this helps
You will need to replace the board with Socket 478, you also need to consider if your other components like your video card or ram will work with your new board if you didn't find a board with the same brand which is gigabyte.
