Exclamation Bad CPU???? Need a second Opinion

I am hoping for a second opinion. I have a ECS 865PE-A7 motherboard. What happened is this the computer was working fine one night I turned it off, and the next day I noticed it was kinda dirty inside so I unhooked the monitor, printer etc... and took the side off the case and used a can of air to blow out the dirt. When I hooked everything back up and plugged it in turned it on I got nothing on the screen everything turned on the board seemed to be working. I noticed a red light on the board it self that was never on before. I figured it was the power supply so I tried the power supply in another computer that I knew worked good and the same thing the red light on that board came on as well and no screen. I bought a brand new power supply put it in and I got the same thing no post but everything turns on fine. This is not my first build or rebuild, I made sure everything was hooked up and all connections were good and tight. Some one told me they thought it was the motherboard so I bought a brand new MSI 848P NEO2-V board installed it hooked everything up and the same problem no post but everything turns on like it should. I went through 4 different video cards 2 of them bran new so I ruled that out. sorry for the long story just trying not to forget any info. I noticed the same red light came on and this time I took the heatsink off the CPU and after about a minute an a half of being on there was no heat what so ever on the chip on either board. I am pretty sure the chip is bad but I just wanted a second opinion from some one with probably more experience than I have. I forgot to mention I also tried the memory sticks one at a time and even different sticks and nothing different. The chip is a Intel Pentium 4 3.2Ghz/2m/800fsb. Any and all help and suggestions are appreciated Thanks.

cpu's rarely go bad...i would be more willing to bet the mobo quit on you, or ram...did you use a antistatic strap while you dusted it?

I didn't dust it per say just used a can of air and blew out the dirt and dust. The odd thing is that the same thing happens with a brand new board and brand new power supply. So this is why I am guessing that the CPU has gone up. But thought I would ask here just to be sure. Thanks.

If what you say is true when you try new RAM and it still wont post its your CPU. You tired other MOBO's, GPU, and a PSU. Find another CPU that is compatible with your system and try it.

CPU's rarely go bad, unless they overheat.
