Testing a CPU or Motherboard

Last response: in CPUs

My new super computer died and will not even signal even getting to the monitor. All fans run and MB lights up.

I have tried everything I can think, even reset CMOS, to no avail. Is there a way to test the CPU or MB before shipping them back?

Thank you, joyfulsongster

The only two options I'm fimilar with are to take a known working compatible CPU and install it into your motherboard to see if it boots or put your CPU in a known working compatible PC and see if it boots. I prefer the second option, since less risk of damaging a good CPU in a bad MOBO.
