Amd a4 problems

Hello,
I am trying to put together a system using fm1 platform, it ran for a day and a half, then quit. When i powered it down, it simply would not come back up. The fans spin, the hard drive tries to spin up, but no post, no beeps, nothing. I thought the power supply might have spiked and damaged the motherboard, so I replaced that, no change. I removed the memory, and get memory error beep, figured it must have heated up and burned up the processor, so replaced processor. Got that back today, .......no change. I'm really at my wits end with this platform, but i'm already in 150 bucks for board, cpu and ddr3, and i can't get refund on cpu, only replacement. Can anyone help me out here? I've been working on this for 2 months now, and am losing patience. Any ideas?

gigabyte GA-A55M-DS2 board
AMD A4-3400 Llano 2.7gHz socket FM1 65w dual core APU
Corsair Vengeance 4GB DDR3 1600 memory
300w PSU
WD 80 GB SATA HD

  1. The failure rates for CPUs are very low and are rated for up to 10 years minimum stock so chances are the board is toast.

    Mobo is what I replaced 1st.
  3. If you get any beeps it means that the CPU is basically working.
