Default Help with motherboard question(wont power up)

Hello there, i have an asus P4C800 E deluxe motherboard.
with a p4 2.6ghz chip. For some reason i cant get it to turn on anymore, it worked fine yesterday.

Ok, so this is where im up to:

I plugged in my headphones so i can hear the diagnostic voice.

I plug in the computer as normal, the green light on the motherboard lights up, but when i power it up i get nothing, no post, the power supply doesnt start, no fans spinning, not even a voice telling me anything.

But when i remove the cpu, the power supply works and so do the fans, and i get a voice saying, that the cpu is missing.

So when i put the cpu back in place it goes to doing nothing again,
is this normal behavior for a burned out cpu?

Seems logical to me to assume something has gone wrong with the CPU. I recommend that you replace it
