I am about to be doing my first build and I was just curious how I would be able to pinpoint if a part is DOA? Like if the CPU was how would I know? The GPU, MOBO, etc? Thank You

Well, I was wondering when I first go to start it up would there be any indication if a certain part was DOA? my main concern is the CPU.

If the CPU has fried, the computer will either:
1) Start up but not do anything; no beeps, no video, no nothing
2) Start up for a split-second (literally), then cut itself back off.

#1 applies to some older boards, #2 seems to be the case on newer mobos.
