Is there a way to know if my CPU is dead without a mono speaker ?

My new build pc wouldn't boot (fans and leds went on). I am pretty sure that my CPU is dead (DOA). But is there a way to determine if it's actually the CPU that isn't working and not something else ?


I checked all the cables twice, started with one RAM stick and erased the RTC RAM.

Every bit of help appreciated.

I don't have another CPU in hand...
But I just saw that there was an orange light next to my RAM. I tjink that indicates that something is wrong with the CPU.
Is that correct ?

a speaker is a key diagnostic device, the motherboards main one in fact.

The diagnostic speaker is the motherboards main diag feedback device.
the motherboard may be telling you where the problem is.
my speakers have this plug

I use lamp wire but any stranded wire will do. literally any stranded wires. strip one end like so

attach the stripped end into the speaker spring clips on the speaker.
the other end of the wire should be trimmed like so the semi strip

by doing a semi strip the wire case is now the socket.
plug one wire to the first pin, and the second onto the fourth pin.
power on the system and listen for beeps
