Dead graphics card or power supply?

Sitting there playing css and my screen freezes. Head phones make made a horrible static noise. So glad i did not have them on. Volume was all the way up.

Restart, but no image on screen. Usually i just unplug comp from power then connect and turn it on. This time it took me 10 times turning on and off. Finally made that beautiful beep and turned on. Happened again but now computer displays no image makes no beep and after like 20 tires its still not turning on. While this the fans and computer seems to be running VERY quiet. Usually it cranks up and gets loud. This is making me think its the power supply not making enough power?

Tried a new graphic card but wouldn't turn on either. But the card is old and not completely sure if it works either.

    power supply: Thermal take Purepower ap 600 ATX 12V 2.2
  3. Ok so i think i have found the problem. I think it was my processor. I took it out and put it back in and monitor turned on and all fans went to full boost like they usually do.

    Get my first beep. But then get 2 quick ones after that. Screen pops up. CMOS Checksum Bad.

    Overclocking failed. Please enter setup for re-configure your system.
  4. Reset BIOS first.
