    After i turn on the motherboard it shut immediately, not entering POST or making any noise threw Speaker.
    Tried Good PSU (Corsair CM400PSU-400CX), not working ether.
    Tried booting up outside case:

    PSU: CORSAIR
    Memory: 512MB 1Rx8 PC2-4200U-444-11
    AET660UD00-370A98X A5C60711
    On the chip-set of the memory written: AENEON AET93F370
    Graphic Card: on-board
    Screen: DELL 2209WA
    Platform: Some wood one
    Speaker: from other computer (BTW, How i test a speaker without motherboard?)
    Power cable: from other device(working 100%)
    Power on: with Jumper

    Result of the test: same.

    Hi, the symptoms seem to suggest a short somewhere, either the board or a component installed on the board such as a video or audio card. You already ruled a short to the chassis, and said you tested with another PSU, not much left but the board. Try booting with no expansion cards installed. I understand there will be no video, just want to see if the board continue to run. Check to see if the heatsink is secure, and for bad capacitors as well. A bad capacitor will usually be bloated on top, a shorted capacitor would be an exception.

    Sound like there is no communication between the bios and processor (no beeps w/o memory). I never owned an Abit MB, question....... When the board was functioning properly, did you hear a single beep for normal operation when starting the computer?

    Or it doesn't have a speaker or the speaker is screwed. I say memory issue for $100, Alex. Otherwise the board is fsck. Processor deaths are extremely rare and I'm going under the assumption that the psu is good.

    Got the motherboard "as-is" don't know.

    how can i test the speaker without motherboard?
    switched the memory, still same.
    maybe the slots themselves bugged?

    Take the board out the case don't hook up anything especially power, take out the cmos battery and bridge the cmos reset pins. Leave it in this state for about 15 minutes. Then hook up just power, known good memory and video if needed and also the mouse and keyboard, try to use a ps2 keyboard, try booting. Look at the keyboard lights when you boot up do they turn on ?

    If your CPU is listed as compatible, and the installed bios revision supports the processor, chances are the board has issues. The board should send out a no memory beep error if no memory is detected, I seriously doubt faulty or incompatible memory modules is the current problem. Buy a speaker or borrow one before you condemn the board and test again.
