I have an Asus P4VP-MX with a Celeron 2.0 processor, 512 meg Kingston DDR Ram ( PC 3200) and a 70 Gig Maxtor HD. Its a new build gone bad, been on the shelf since May 2005.

System posted originally then went to no display after I was installing an add on card. Seem to recall I thought my NIC was defective and was installing a spare network card when the system went dead.

I have removed CPU to another PC and it runs like a charm

Also removed mobo from case and ran it on mobo box still will not post

Also reset CMOS jumpers without luck also removed battery

Stripped down system to Processor and Ram only still no action

I recall that on initial build I had a lot of deflection on the board after installing the heat sink. Having removed CPU and heatsink and reinstalled ( new thermal paste, yes) the deflection is negligible
Don't know what else I can try

Yes also tried using a more poweful PSU based on Asus Specks and still no boot.

How can I rule out ( or in) the cpu socket and could the board somehow have become delaminated?

Did I mention that the Fan runs and the LED glows beautifully, a real teaser

Well just to be sure I repeated the process and with the speaker lead connected there were no audible beeps, the only noise came from the fan, even tried that lead both ways to make sure I got it right.

what do you mean by deflection when fitting the heat sink
there should not be any with a celeron 2,in the early cradle when you closed the locking levers,it could go offline and cause the heatsink to be off square
i always fitted them to the m/b before placing it in the case so i had a good view of what was going on and with it on a flat solid surface the pressure remains even

I installed the heatsink with the mobo in the case , after locking the levers I noticed that it caused the board to be bent (deflected) in that area. After removing the mobo from the case and testing it on the carton the second time I installed the heat sink there was little or no deflection which made me conclude I must had done something wrong the first time. At what cost...? got a funny feeling
