You and I have unfinished business

In early july my EpoX MB died on me.  I was running:

CPU AMD|2700 /333 ATHLON
MB EPOX NFORCE2 EP-8RDA3I
EVGA|GF FX 5700 Ultra 128M  
2X DDRAM 512MB PC-3200
POWER SUPPLY|ASPIRE ATX-AS520W
Lite-On  DVD+/-RW
Lite-On CDRW
Maxtor 40 gig HD

The MB died on me and being unemployed I couldnot replace it.  I am coming into a bit of cash that will allow me to get a new board.  My question is that I was able to confirm that all the other parts still worked, but as of right now I can't confirm if the CPU survived the MB dying.  Is there a way to check this without plugging it into another MB?  My best friend is a intel man and is my tech and was able to plugg my other parts into his intel MB, but not the CPU.  Can I safely assume if the other parts survived then the CPU survived as well?

Unfortunately, without a better idea what caused your MB to die, I don't think you should make that assumption.  Indeed, are you certain it was your MB and not your CPU which died in the first place?  What did you do to test it to confirm it was the MB?

Fortunately, new Athlon XP CPUs are pretty cheap these days, so if it turns out it did die, you can get one for under $100.

Or you could just use this as an excuse to upgrade to an Athlon 64...  Cool

The MB isnot booting up at all.  Even with a bad processor the bios should still come up.   Shouldn't it?

Did you check that its not your power supply?  Is the fan spinning on the supply when you power it  up?  if nothing is coming on at all, that is the first place I would look.
