Alright...I could not possibly find the problem so I dropped off the entire computer to CompUSA and my father paid an entire 100 bucks for them to find the problem.
They found the problem and on the paper report it said then processer was bad and needed to be replaced, they tested my processer in a different computer and it did not work, and they used one of theirs (I dunno which processer exactly I'm about to call) and there own processer apartently worked in my motherboard and it was able to "post" as they call it....which means boot I believe.
So...I took the 3.0Ghz chip back to Fry's (do you know how many times I've been there lol argg) and replaced it with a new one. When I picked up the computer from CompUSA I asked them if I got a working processer, would it boot up? They said yes.
Well I seriously doubt the second processer I got doesnt work. I'm pretty sure it does because when it's inserted, the hard drive light shows up, it does not do that when there is no processer. Processer also warms up, so I have a feeling it works. (The first one did the same too!, I'm starting to think the first one worked)
So did CompUSA give me a false report? I'm not sure. But I'm about to call and it's not going to be a good conversation. This is the second FIC 865 Dynasty (P4-865PE MAX, Link: http://www.fic.com.tw/product/mother...-865PEMAX.aspx
) motherboard so I'm sure it's not a bad board, and I'm sure it's not a bad CPU, and the RAM works fine, and the video card works fine on any other computer. I'm truley lost again.
ANY SUGGESTIONS? I really need some help
Like I said....I'm about to call.
I've been without a computer since I started this topic....it really sucks.
Edit: This is the processer, "Intel Pentium 4/ 3.0E GHz 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache, Hyper Threading Technology"
I checked the CPU test table...and it supports 2.0ghz Celeron, I know someone with that chip...should I still test it? I'm afraid the board will do something to the chip though.
