I have an Asus P4PE-X MB that has been sitting around for a while.  This MB worked fine prior to removing it from its chassis.  I'm trying to build another machine with it and I can not get it to boot.  There is no display, nor are there any beeps.  I've read a couple of other topics within EE that talk about this situation.  I've stripped the computer down to nothing but a system speaker, CPU, and RAM, but still no beeps.  I went one step further and removed the RAM at which point I did receive a beep indicating that there is no RAM installed.  My question here is would the MB still be the problem even know I received beeps indicating that the RAM was not installed?  I'm assuming if the MB is bad than I wouldn't receive any beeps ever.  If the MB is not to blame, what else can I do to troubleshoot this?
