Hi guys, having a rather odd and frustrating problem. I purchased a new CPU cooler and had to remove the MB to fit it. Everything went fine but when I plugged it all back in the PC powered on, fans and drives started spining but nothing displayed on the monitor (no error beeps either). After a bit of screwing around I figured I damaged the MB while removing/fitting the cooler so I went down the road and bought a new MB. Went through the install process of fitting the new board, but once again same problem! Power but no display, monitor light just blinks. I tried a different PSU, RAM and video card but nothing helped. The only thing I haven't changed is the CPU (don't have a spare). Could the CPU be fried? I don't see any scorch marks or smell anything. When I insert the CPU without the heatsink I can feel it get hot and then cools when I power the PC down (only did for 10 seconds so I don't really fry the CPU). To me this "indicates" that the CPU is ok, or will the CPU continue to heat even if it's dead? Any suggestions/ideas? Oh, one odd thing I noticed immediately after fitting the cooler in the original MB was after I powered the PC on the DVD drive made a strange sound and the light blinked. I pushed the eject button but it only came out half way and then went back in. Never seen that before.
