    When you say "no bios" I presume you mean it isn't going through power on self tests (POST)?

    What IS it doing? Are there any lights that come on on the board? Does the fan start spinning?

    What board? What system did you put it in? What power supply?

    Most likely you hooked something up wrong, but lacking any details no one will be able to help you.

    yes thats what i mean.
    well everything seems to be hooked on right, the CPU has 3 fans and they are up and running as well as the CD drive its working so i don't think its the power supply, and the hard drive is also connected and works and it sounds like its doing something but when i connect the monitor to the computer, the monitor just goes to sleep because it says that there is nothing connected to it. when you say system do you mean processor? well i have an Intel dual-core Pentium processor.

    First step is to remove it from the case and power it up on the bench bare. Many times, a short to the case will stop up the works.
