    Okay i asked a question a few days ago pertaining to if my processor was fried or not...now after a little troubleshooting and actually following the directions on the manual of the M/B i see that it was shorted to the case. Could this have effected the processor and cause it not to work? I think it did or that it was damaged from the previous problems i've had. I have the M/B out of the case and on the box it came in and it'll turn on. no beeps or POST but when i hold the power button for 3 secs it goes back off.(I've had the board fixed b/c it shorted and produced a burning smell RMA'd and had it fixed/replaced). Now just to see what'd happen i took the processor out and turned on M/B and oddly it did exactly as it had with the processor in. So you can see why i think it's the processor so before I went out and bought another i'm wanting to know if anyone here could point out something else that might be the problem. (note: nothing connected to board but RAM processor..fans...and power sw,,,power LED etc...)
