The machine is getting power but doesn't beep or startup. No activity on the monitor at all. It will check drives then nothing. It will read a bootable cd in the drive and still does not startup. I just changed out the processor and still.... nothing. The processor fan is coming on but the others are not. I've checked the monitor on another computer and it's fine. Now that I've ruled out the processor (80 bucks later) I'm thinking its the motherboard. This is not a custom built machine, it's a factory. I need your thoughts on if it could be anything else or if I need to break down and buy a motherboard (which I should have done in the first place). :blink:

Here are the specs...
HP Pavilion A6050Y
4G Ram
Intel Pentium D925 3.0 Ghz, 4MB, 800mhz
400GB Hard Drive
256MB NVidia GForce 7500LE
Vista Home Premium

Thanks in advance!

When you changed your CPU, did you remember to reapply thermal paste?
