So my Emachine T2385 Mobo/PSU went out last week. I purchased a new Intel845GLVA motherboard(using a 2.3 Celeron processor) and a new PSU. After hooking everything up, the monitor wasn't getting anything fed to it. I attached a working hard drive which is getting power. I also could open up the cd rom so it can't be the PSU. Holding the power button for 8 seconds to shut everything off works. What could be the problem?

Ok, I figured the new motherboard is not working properly as well because there is no beeps at all and I removed the memory and the HD. Before I ask the company for a replacement here's the specs:

My Computer:
Emachines T2385
CPU : Intel® Celeron® Processor 2.30GHz (w/128KB L2 cache & 400MHz FSB)
Chipset : Intel® 845GL chipset
Memory : 512MB DDR (PC2100)

The motherboard I replaced it with and plan on getting the same one:
Intel Desktop Board D845GLVA Mainboard
https://www.compuvest.com/Desc.jsp?iid=964028

This would be the right motherboard to get, correct? Also could a possbile bad CPU kill the motherboard? And is there a way to test the CPU without having any extra supplies to work with? I don't want to exchange the motherboard and end up have the computer not working again.

The only way to test the CPU is in a working motherboard unless of course your Intel, if you have removed it from the case and done the bench test to eliminate shorting to the case, I would also think the board is bad.

Thanks, could the motherboard still beep if the cpu is bad? Right now I don't have any working/compatible systems to test so it's really hard to figure out what the problem might be.

Could it yes but it's unlikely, with Intel it's almost never the CPU unless it's Overclocked and/or over volted to death. Or of course loose or broken/bent pins from mishandling.
When you installed it you did of course redo the thermal paste correct?

I decided to return the mobo and the company told me that the motherboard was defective. I received the replacement motherboard yesterday and tested it out. Everything was working fine. I bench tested the parts. I had the board, mouse, keyboard, memory and hard drive working fine. Added the cd-rom drive and installed the required drivers for the board. So I figured everything should be good and time to put the mobo into my case. Now today when I turned on the computer, heatsink and PSU fan were both working, there was nothing happening. I didn't see nor hear the POST boot up. The board is still good because I can hear beeps from it. I can't believe this could be happening again. And to answer your previous question no I did not put any thermal pasting at all, could this be a problem that's occuring now? This is giving me a damn headache. I finally thought everything was good just to put the motherboard back in the case and it's not working.

Yes anytime you remove the heat sink thermal paste needs to be redone> https://www.arcticsilver.com/arctic_s...structions.htm

You may want to pull it back out just to make sure it's not shorting on the case.
Check that you have a stand off for every hole and a screw in every hole.

So the motherboard was the fault again. I got it replaced and got some thermal paste. I made sure I was careful to handle the new one and made sure I grounded myself. So far everything is good and working in the case so let's hope it stays that way. Unfortunately I have a new computer problem here https://www.techsupportforum.com/f15/...ps-410401.html
