Windows 7: Computer is not booting at all.

Yes it would. That green LED just indicates that the board is getting power and is in the ready state. Manufacturers started putting them in so repair techs could quickly see if the power was still on before working on the board or components.

That light comes first in the MB's power logic circuit. You can't even activate the circuit at the PWR pins if that light is not on. So CPU in or out should not matter.

Well it comes as a relief right now anyways, knowing it may not be my processor, but on the 28th of this month I will be ordering a new motherboard any recommendations? I know I will be staying away from Foxconn products from now on.

Meh. Every manufacturer is going to have a bad board from time to time. They are very complex devices. Current manufacturing standards allow for a 5% defect rate before they consider it a problem (for them). So you have a 1 in 20 chance of getting a bad board from anyone.

I shop best bang for the buck. Who provides the most motherboard for the lowest price. I stick to the major players though: Asus, Gigabyte, Intel, MSI, Biostar, sometimes EVGA or even ASRock.

So I have finally gotten my computer to run smoothly only a few problems, I did buy a new motherboard ASUS, and I got the green light, so that was my relief and then the computer still wouldn't start, so I ended up pulling the front panel off the Zalman Z9 case and found out that the power button cable wasn't even plugged into the cord extending down to plug the pins into the motherboard, so either way I would have still thought It wasn't working but thankfully it is back up and I had to reinstall my operating system on one of my hard drives a long path but thank you all for sticking it through.

Hum remember those litle things I mentioned.

I think we all make those mistakes of thinking it is something major and well the car isn't going to go if a couple of the spark leads are off eh?

Good it going though.
