Hello ladies and gents, I am in need of a second opinion. So someone brought me a PC, a manufacturer branded PC that is, and when I started it up, well the obvious black screen, computer doesn't boot up. So now I did the regular troubleshooting. It may happen that corrupted ram _may_ hang the boot process, so i tried that. Removed the ram in the machine, put ram that I knew is functional, put it in either ram slot, no dice. It happens also that a burnt integrated video card might be the problem. Put a PCI videocard that I know is function, no dice. I went on to the power supply, as this is very common. Switch it up with a known working one, no dice. Now i'm left with the Motherboard and the CPU. I am pretty sure that it's the motherboard the problem but I want to be 100% sure. Is the only way to know is to remove the processor and put it in another machine? Is there any quick way to know if the processor is at fault? Thanks!
