i mistakenly rested my pc, tried to turn it on again it does but turns off instantly and turns on again, and stays like that, no image, no beeps, tpu and epu led on, cpu led on ( red ), i took out the cpu fan and put my finger on the cpu to check if its heating, it doesnt.
Open the case and reset the BIOS to default values.
Then if it boots past the BIOS, press F8 and boot once into Safe Mode.
Let windows fully startup and then shut it down.
Boot into BIOS again and make the necessary changes in the Boot order etc etc. Save & Exit, Boot into windows normally.
Do this and let us know what happens when.
How about just removing the CPU and then reseating it? Have you given that a try, I'd also like you to check to see if there is any discoloration on the CPU base contact points or the Pins in the socket that are on the Mobo. Use a torch/flashlight if you have to and check if you see any signs of the copper contacts overheating.
OMG I've been squinting into that pic for like 20 Minutes now, can't make head or tail of it, might be a bad angle, but if you have a few more pics from different sides that would help. The SB socket does have that fancy 2Ls shape so you never know ...
