My computer has been working fine for a number of years on turning on last week I got a black screen with no POST beep on checking I found the CPU warning light illuminated on my ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 Motherboard I purchased a tested FX8350 CPU replaced the FX6100 still no boot up. The motherboard fault light is not lit up. on checking the Web I find it is a common problem but zero advise on what the problem is caused by and how to solve it. my simple solution is to replace the board with an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX. giving me a cheap upgrade but it is troubling me, logic is telling me that the BIOS chip has failed or corrupted but why is the motherboard indicating healthy?  any help would be gladly received
