Hello,
I hava a ASUS U8668-D ver7.1 motherboard and just bought a new processor. When i turn it on the only thing that happens is the fans and cd rom and hard drive light comes on but soon goes out. I cant seem to get it to boot up ,Even with a 98 floppy,it doesnt even seek a floppy. There is also (that i can see) no little beep thing or whatever it is.Suggestions on what it could be? PLEASE HELP.

What CPU did you put in the motherboard? If the MB and CPU are not compatible you can have this result.

It could be:
1. bad motherboard
2. bad power supply
3. bad memory
4. bad video card or modem card

Does it beep if you start it with no memory?
Does it beep if you start it with out a video card inserted?
Have you started it with no cards inserted in the MB?

A professional repair shop can test it to see what POST code the BIOS issues when it terminates the boot process.

Good Luck
