New Pc build but no beep at bios (HELP)

i recently made a new pc and everything was easy and smooth until i turned it on. everything turned on fine, the hdd was humming, the fans were spinning, the gpu fan was spinning, the only problem was that the bios didn't run. my previous build had a buzzer for when bios runs correctly. this pc had one too and it didnt go off. i have to mention that my cpu is the only part in my build that was used from my last pc. amd fx 8300. i dropped it when i took it out and it fell on tile pins first but it didnt look like it took a hard fall cause it was barely any height. i know it might be my cpu but i need to be for sure before going out and buying a new one.

  1. Not sure I understand, so is your build still running fully ? Is it only the small buzzer that doesn't seem to be working ? Do you have another motherboard at hand you can use for testing ?

  2. What is your full system spec?

  3. My buzzer isnt the problem i was just saying that usually when a pc goes into bios the buzzer would beep, and my buzzer did not which indicates my pc does not go into bios. Overall my issue is that everything is new and running smoothly,but bios doesnt load and my monitor doesnt get any visuals. My cpu fell before so i suspect it to be that but it could maybe be something else which is what im asking here.

  4. My specs are
    ASUS M5A78L-M Plus/USB3 DDR3 HDMI DVI USB 3.0 760G MicroATX Motherboard
    Evga Gtx 1050
    Amd fx 8300
    16g of munshkin ram
    Evga 500 psu BQ

  5. Ok, I see. What could be likely is that your PSU no longer outputs enough power therefore preventing your pc from starting up. There are basically four possible causes to this: the psu, the cpu, the RAM and the motherboard, if you have another RAM module or maybe two of 8Gb, try swapping them out and see what happens.

    The CPU is harder to diagnose without a mb error code, but in case the psu and ram are working fine, it is indeed the most likely cause.

  6. Whats your monitor plugged into ??

    That board has integrated graphics & a hdmi port so you may have it plugged into the wrong output.

    Try both the board hdmi & the 1050 gpu hdmi.

    Indeed, meant to ask, has it ever turned on or is that your first shot at it ? Long time ago I did the same thing with a 650 gtx, though the buzzer went off with three bips to signal it wasn't plugged right.

  8. I've tried multiple ways already. I tried my friends 650 corsair psu, tried with 1 ram then took both out. I highly suspect the cpu due to the fact it fell and probably got damaged. I have 2 motherboards at my disposal and they both work fine with my pc. My hdd are also fine. But im open to suggestions to what i should do

  9. This is also a whole new build except my cpu which i used in my previous pc.

  10. Do you still have your previous pc to try the cpu in ??

    No, i gave it to my friend which has the same evga 500 bq psu i have and our pc basically need the same power requirments

  12. Is he a good enough friend to let you try your 8300 in what is now his pc ??

    Because I cant think of another way to test it.

    Ive never known a cpu to physically break apart from snapping or bending pins , you have checked the pins thoroughly ??

    He's a good friend but he moved out of the area recently. I dropped my cpu pins first onto hard tile, I'd think that would be enough to damsge the cpu

  14. Since the connexions are so tight in a cpu, they can't really brake apart from a simple fall. So either like madmatt suggested, you have a bent/loose pin or it has shorted from doing so. Can you send us a pic or maybe inspect thoroughly the pins and the motherboard traces ?

  15. ^ whs - an amd cpu is a circuit board, hard weld solder & a metal surface die.there are no moving parts , they go under huge amounts of pressure from CPU cooler fitment to to no ill effect.

    The one weak point is the pins - they are easily broken or bent.

    You need to remove the cpu, turn it upside down & check it thoroughly.

    Ill sure to do all that when i get home. The cpu fell I'd say 3-5ft so im thinking its highly possible but i will let you all know

  17. The cpu fell pins first not metal surface first.

  18. Ok, let us now as soon as you can, hopefully nothing major :)

  19. How do i send a picture on here? Also i dont know how to thoroughly check the cpu. It looks fine to me. When i take it out now it comes off the motherboard attatched to the heatsink which is odd to me because it would never used to do that

  20. I just found out that the corner of the cpu is bent !

  21. It is sticking on the heatsink because the thermal paste bewteen them has hardened, which is indicatory that it should be replaced.
    To post a picture, simply use the 6th button from the left, above the textbox when posting a reply.

  22. If its coming off with the heatsink then it was never locked down properly with the metal locking bar in the first place
