Hello everybody. I have recently come a across a problem that I have been unable to solve. When I boot up my PC, the CPU and RAM LEDs come on, and I cannot POST. I have not been overclocking. I have a water-cooled i7 960 on a Asus Sabertooth X58. My PC worked perfectly yesterday, and I cannot understand why this happened. Did my CPU suddenly die? I have tried reseating memory and clearing my CMOS. Can anybody help me? BTW, I really don't want to RMA my CPU, but if I have to, can anybody tell me how exactly to RMA it. I bought this custom system from iBuyPower.

If you have more than 1 RAM stick (I guess you have 3), try to install only 1 stick at a time & see if you can post or boot.
I tried that. When I inspected my BIOS battery, it had two nicks on it. Could it be a corrupt BIOS?
