ok i tried everything suggested and nothing changed except when i put in a differant VGA. when i put a differant VGA in and turned it on all the fans came on and i could hear the HDD spin up but no BIOS beep...at all. and no display or any other signs of life. im wondering, my MOBO has been giving me trouble ever since i got it...should i just go ahead and buy a new one w/ a new processor. cuz the one i have is socket 754 and im thinking about buying a socket 939 to upgrade in the future. tho i don't have much money right now i was wondering if this would be a good idea? also if we can solve the problem w/ my current MOBO it would be greatly appreciated!!! thanx abunch for you help so far!!

Either your CPU fried or the northbrife Chipset fried. f it's the CPU, try another one (Without buying one) or throw the whole mobo out...and I'll give you two bucks for the CPU

just one beep about 4 seconds long then it just sits there w/ all the fans on and does nothing...not even the HDD is spinning by then...and all the RAM LED's are off (when the computer is firsted turned on they all come on and flash accorind to the amount used)
