Cleaning with denatured alcohol should not damage your chip.

Don't use a static free bag (they look too metalic for my tastes.... never checked to see if they were conductive.... :) ), just set the mobo up on your mobo box.

Thanks you sswilson. Ill try that today and if it still isn't working. Im out to buy some real cheap 775 CPU just to test the mobo. If still not working, ill get a new mobo.

What cheap CPU should i buy to test my mobo ?

EDIT: Im actually thinking of just going out at my local store and get what they have there.
