Ok so i was recently on an AMD motherboard when it fried most likely. After a lot of testing i found the MOBO was dead, and the only other one i could get my hands on was an unknown Intel MOBO, band new. After slotting an also unknown dual core Intel processor, when switched on, the board and all fans would turn on for about .5 seconds, and keep repeating. After re slotting processor and resetting the MOBO(taking out battery), it now posts with a an error beep code of 4-3-4-2. No matter which parts I remove, whether it be a hard drive, GPU, or RAM, it still posts the exact same error code. EX./ I tried to boot the board with NO GPU, NO RAM, and NO Hard Drive, and without the MOBO battery slotted, and it produced the exact same code. The only other thing i could thing of would be to replace the CPU and try, but I currently cannot obtain one. Any help would be appreciated.
P.S The RAM sticks are brand new, and the mother board was also never used.
Please provide information about the Intel board and processor. There should be some information on the PCB. Usually between the CPU socket and RAM slots OR, somewhere between the PCI slots.
Also, if you clean the Intel processor off, you should be able to see what type it is and that will let you know if it is compatible. If you can get into the BIOS, restore defaults and once you determine what the board is, you should be able to download updated firmware/BIOS and flash it to hopefulyl solve the problem. If you can't figure out what the board is on your own, take a picture of the board (WHOLE board) and upload it to some filehost full size and someone here should be able to help you identify it or at the very least, tell you wheere to look on the board for the info.
Also, what socket is it? And did you connect all the hardware including the hard drive? If so, disconnect the HDD and see what happens. Finally, unplug the computer, hold the power button for 30 seconds, remove the CMOS battery and clear the CMOS (move the jumper) and let sit overnight.
Head back when you have an idea of what the board is. If the board is POSTing, that means it is hanging up AFTER the memory test and CPU check, does it load all of that or are you misunderstanding what POSTing is?
