Hi, I have:
>MOTHERBOARD: ASUS M2NPV-VM
>CPU: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core Processor 5600+ (2.8GHz) AM2
>RAM: 2GB G-Skill DDR-2
>PSU: Aspire 420W

Yesterday I was trying to run spinrite-6 on my HDD's but it it wasnt working correctly, so i was told to make a MS-DOS Floppy Disk.
So unplugged the PSU.
Then I plugged in my floppy cable to the mobo then plugged in its power cable.
but when the PC came on it started beeing at me: 1-Long 2-Short Beeps Over & Over Again.
so i unplugged that floppy drive & its power.
Booted the PC back on again and the beeping is still there with the same beep sequence.
so u Google beeping codes. and see its BIOS Errors or somthing.
So i look up my BIOS BEEP CODES here --> http://kb.iu.edu/data/afzy.html
im pretty sure i have phoenix award or award bios not 100% sure though..??
but it says:
Beeps Meaning
1 long, 2 short Video adapter error: Bad or improperly seated video card
Repeating beeps Memory error: Bad or improperly seated RAM
so then i did all what it says here --> http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000607.htm
unplugged everything so only the 24pin MOBO & 4pin CPU power cables are hooked up
all ram, hdd's, PCI Cards, adapters ect are disconnected-unplugged.
just the power button cable & the 24pin MOBO & 4pin CPU power cables are hooked up.
booted up again and still the beeping is there with the same code..
I unplug the 4pin CPU power cable and boot back up and the beeping is gone.
so removed the CPU & HeatSink + Fan Clean them off and reattached them.
plugged in the CPU power and rebooted and the beeping is back..

does this mean my CPU is damaged or something..??

What do you guys think i should do..??
is there any more info you guys might need from me to help diagnose whats causing this..?
thanks for anyone who can help..

Award BIOS...I think your onboard video chip is out or going out...and that pattern is just repeating over and over, if I understand you correctly.

I'm certainly no expert, so wait for more feedback. It's hard to try to interpret what you are hearing, IMO.

Well...I always feel that the only true way to pin down hardware defects...is to switch components out.

In your case, that would mean installing either a PCI or PCI-e video card to see if such works properly. Unfortunately, since the system won't boot to a visible screen, that seems impossible (to me).

As for why it stops when you unplug the 4-pin connector...take a read at http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnector...rs.html#atx12v4

According to that link, there should be no CPU power when you remove that 4-pin, if I understand correctly.
