    You need to try the CPU out on another board to be sure.

    so, you're not getting any display on your screen? it could be your ram memory, but yea - you need to try out other combos eg:
    same mobo diff cpu same ram
    same mobo diff cpu diff ram
    this could be expensive if you dont have any spare parts - so you could think about an upgrade...

    With no beeps coming from the motherboard, my guess would be the CPU is gone. Your motherboard can't think if it doesn't have a brain. You need to test it in a different machine or get it tested to be sure.
