I have a Intel DQ45CB board with a E9400 Core2Quad chip, the board powers on but no display, USB keyboard light off, Even when I try to boot into bios recovery, no display. Did the normal troubleshoot:
1. new CMOS battery
2. used a PCI-e GPU
3. new ATX12v ver2.2 PSU,
4. tried various 1GB DDR2 ram
5. different case
7. working LCD screens & cables
Still no display....., is there a process of flashing the bios via USB with no display?
Any guidance will be appreciated
Do you mean "Q9400"?

I do not know that you can.

Also, this is an old board. Do you know for certain that it is good? And, do you know for certain that the processor is good?
