    Default MoBo bad, I think!!

    OK, Will a Mobo go into Bios with a bad CPU?

    I should know this! I wish I still had my other system so I could swap out CPU's! Thanks Guys!

    Depends on what you mean by "bad," but probably not.

    It doesnt work with a CPU that has broken pins or isnt set correctly, I learned that one from expirience. Doesnt the BIOS use the CPU anyway or am I mistaken?

    If the CPU was dead it would do nothing. It could be in very rough shape and still go into bios. Tough to say really.
