Default cpu/mobo trouble

hey i have an asus a7v333 mobo which im trying to run a 1.4ghz cpu in. The mobo(using voice prompts instead of beep codes) says "proccesor failed cpu test". I tried the proccessor in a different mobo(same power supply hard drive etc.) and it still didnt work. I take it to a freinds house, pop it in his computer and it works.
I have tried the following:
1. checked cpu for bent pins
2.tried 3 graphics cards(all worked in other computers)
3. checked mobo grounding

The only thing that I can think of is your current asus m.b. could be damaged or the chip is not compatible. I really cant think of anything else that could be the prob.

Thanks-but figured the problem out myself after a lot of testing- the asus mobo and the power supply and the original graphic card were fried

Remember ASUS has a 3 year warranty on their Mobo's! My Asus A7V333 was blowing CPU's on Power up. Returned it to them, They verified the problem & returned me a new (I think) A7V333 Mobo.
