-Someone on another forum told me to ask you guys over here said you would probably know.-

Hey I'm getting into PC's building. My friend gave me a older computer he had lying around (without a CPU or heat sink). Just wanted to know if i could assess the bios without having the CPU in the motherboard. It does have a GPU built on the motherboard. It powers on and all the components start working but still doesn't output. Didn't know if there was a trick I didn't know about.

 

Thanks for your time.

Hello Xdecora!

 

The link below will give you a quick guideline, as those desktop PC components needed for a computer to work (you'll see that you must have a CPU). Have some fun with the list! Post back with as many questions that you have. BleepingComputer is an awesome resource.
