    I threw a motherboard into a case last night and put a 2.0ghz P4 proc in it and when I booted everything up I didn't get any video and didn't get any beep tones. My friends and I can't figure out whats wrong. My friend had a chip that he tried to put in it and it bent the pins because he didn't have it settled properly before he locked it in. He thinks a pin may have broken off and fallen through the socket but the new chip sits down fine and locks with no sign of resistance. Any reasons why I could get this problem. The only part that is in question is the mobo because all the other parts were working in a system earlier that day. We had to use the new mobo because of Dell's Proprietary bullshit and the fact that I can't get their mobo out of the case, and all of the power/usb plugs are not a standard size. Fuck Dell desktops. Any ideas aside from bad mobo?
