Can a motherboard kill multiple cpu's? Tags: Homebuilt Computers CPUs Motherboards Systems Last response: January 15, 2013 1:04 AM in Systems Share Dorsa January 14, 2013 12:32:24 PM I had an issue with 1 of my computers not posting. It was fine then just shut itself down one night and would no longer post. I have / had another machine that I took the cpu out of to troubleshoot the issue and it didn't work. But now the second cpu no longer posts the other machine. I troubleshooted them both the correct way, im just wondering if its possible the motherboard knocked both cpus out? thx.
