No boot ! Breadboarding to bare and no Beep ! Tags: Homebuilt Boot Systems Last response: June 11, 2009 1:34 AM in Systems Share crobar June 10, 2009 10:30:40 PM My fathers old Pentium 4 computer stop working. So I took it home and breadboard it. Right now I only have Motherboard-Cpu-Hsf on and I cant hear the "beep" from the boot when I turn the power on. The HSF fan is working and if I install my Gpu the fan works also. So the power is working on the motheboard. Any Idea what could be wrong ? Is my CPu dead ? Or Mobo ?
