Default newb on mobo install no beeping what gives?

i have an emachines t2542. it uses a p4 2.5gh and 478 atx mobo. while on it it shut off on me, turned it on, locked up, turned it on shut off. the next day no power. i replaced the psu. didnt turn on. i ordered a asus p4v8x-mx 478 mobo. replaced it and it powered on (fans and light only) called tech support for asus (useless didnt know crap uhhh ummmm uhhhhh) there are no beeps when i turn it on. on the old mobo there is a hint of whiteness on the opposite side where the cpu was. barely able to see it coming from 4 pins (here most people would say its a fried cpu) but id like to know for sure. i heard p4 turn off b4 overheating(prob what it did when i kept turning it on in the first place) but the power supply did go bad replaced it,replaced mobo anyways, and now did it fry the cpu? would i be able to hear beeps if the cpu didnt work? do all mobo's have the capability of giving beeps or did i get a special one that doesnt? please help thanks alot.

i already payed it forward. The same day i helped this poor lady at work get her sons coputer running my computer that was stable (as much as it could be for an emachines) for 7 years goes out on me. i got her sons to work and thats what im using right now to ask this. thanks for any help

im not sure wat ur trying to say. do u mean its on the cpu where the pins are located? the whiteness ur talking about may be thermal paste and if it got into the cpu pins then ur screwed,
