I am trying to put together a Soyo MOBO but it won't come on. That is, even on the bench with nothing plugged in except the power supply, when I short the 'start' terminals, NOTHING HAPPENS???
Could this be caused by No CPU, or a bad CPU?

I am having a similar problem with a computer I'm building. It's a Soyo P43 Dragon Ultra,Pentium 4 2.0 gig,256 mb 333mhz ddr. Even with the m/b out of the case I still don't get video or beeps. All the fans run and m/b lights are on. I've reset the cmo's and reseated both ram and video card. Soyo's web site says to swap the cpu out with a known good one...who can afford that? By the way the cpu is oem boxed with fan. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

It can only be one of two things, either the motherboard or the cpu is bad. Try another cpu or take the cpu you have and try it on another motherboard.
