Tried no vid,
tried no mem,
tried no cpu.
tried Enermax 500W PS
Tried bypass power switch.
Tried removing board and booting extrernally.
All the same... nothing, not a sound.
I'm suspecting the board or the cpu.
I don't have another CPU to test on it.

Isn't there supposed to be something telling me that there is no cpu though. I mean that motherboard should do something even with a bad CPU shouldn't it?..
I don't know, please help.

The A8N series are the crappiest motherboards ever known to man. I hate mine with a passion.
