Motherboard problem?

  1. I'm getting NO beep at POST, and no video.

    I just bought a brand new motherboard and installed that, and that didn't fix it...

    could it be my processor?

    Do you get any power at all (fans spinning/lights)? What happens exactly if you press the power button?

    When i press power I get everything but a picture and a POST beep. Fans spin and everything. I've tried everything though. I've replaces the motherboard, CPU, and PSU and now I have no idea what left to do...

    Have you tried reseating/replacing your GPU/RAM as well as setting your BIOS to factory default settings?

    Look for a round battery on your Motherboard. It'll be a bit smaller than a US quarter. Take it out, wait a few minutes, put it back in and try to boot again.
