I have an Intel E6550 Dual which is 7 years old. Its been setting around for about 6 months and now the monitor wont turn on. I bought a new Video card, tried 2 monitors with 2 different connections, took the RAM out and re-seeded it. The power supply turns on. So is there something else I can try or that Im missing. Otherwise I will just junk it but wanted to post before I did.
When I turn on the computer there is no sound coming from the motherboard or hard drive. Even with a dead or removed cmos there should be some sound when the power is turned on. My fans in the case are working. I'm wondering if I just have a dead motherboard.

Usually when a computer gets power but doesn't turn on it's a board/processor issue. Take out the ram and turn on the computer to see if you get any beep codes. If not it will most likely be one of those two parts(usually the board is what goes over the processor).
