    could be what you thought

    it could be your processor, do you have access to another cpu that would fit your board?
    if not, might want to reset your bios on your mobo.
    beyond that, is beyond me.
    sorry :(

    Standoffs are metal or plastic posts that separate the motherboard from the case so the underside of the motherboard does not touch the case directly. If it does, it will short.
