  1. A connector or power problem is much more likely than the CPU.
  2. there is power to my unti everything else works it just does not go in to the bios setup
  3. do you get any output to the screen at all? if not, problem could be graphics card. I'd also check that the front panel connectors are in the right places
  4. not output at it has no display the graphics card has been tried in 2 different pcs and it working 100% and panel coonectors are in the corrct spots

    Then everything else is not working.

    You did not post system specs.

    It is probably not the CPU. Most likely culprit is a mistake in assembly. Next most likely is a bad PSU.

    Work through the list.
  6. System specs-Intel q9400 quad @2.66 - Asus GTX 260 - 4 gig OCZ Gaming ram @ 800 mhz - 650 watt Coolermaster PSU - Gigabyte P43-ud3l Motherboard - WD 808 GIG hdd


    Yes it was a mistake in the build? cpu did not lock into place properly Causing "CPU LOCK" pulled cpu out started pc without it to reset back to normal settings placed cpu back in and she booted first go!
