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.
