I just started my first PC build and so before I put stuff in the case I did a pre-test. Turned it on and nothing came up. Everything powered on but nothing came up. I followed the exact instructions everything plugged in but nothing is coming up. How can I tell if it's my CPU? My dad did touch the CPU when it was in and we had to use some force to push the lock down on the CPU. What is wrong?
I would start by checking to make sure you didn't mess the pins up on the motherboard, those Land Grid Array's are VERY fragile, and while the locking arm can require a little bit of pressure to lock down, it shouldn't be substantial.
