I put together a PC with parts that I had. One PC was working fine, until something happened and all of a sudden it stopped working. I'm not sure the exact cause, but what I can tell you is that when I tried to turn on the PC, it would just run the fans inside the case and pressing the power button would do nothing.
Now I have switched this old motherboard with a FIC K8-800T mobo and put everything back together. When I boot it up now, it gives me one long beep right before it attempts to boot from the CD. There's no CD so it begins to boot Windows, but then it just goes slow. It won't even load the loading screen.
Does this mean my CPU is bad or is there a way to fix this? I may have put a cord or two in the wrong place on the motherboard, I'm not quite a genius with computers, but I definitely know my way around them.
