    Have you tried resetting the SMC by pushing the small button inside (over the motherboard) , ONE TIME ONLY ?

    The CPU you have tried, was new or used ? (maybe it was shorted/damaged)

    Have you been banned from Google or something? Because everything you ask is easy to find the answer for on there. Im not saying you should not come here to ask for help, but at least try to help yourself before asking folk here to spoon feed you.

    The issue is that google will provide better answers, many of which are already here.

    Having worked inside that type of mini extensively, i can say there are amazing work through with videos and pictures for you.

    I cannot stress this one enough. When you want to do damn near anything to your macs? Go to! I don't work for them, I am not affiliated with them in anyway. But they are the easiest guides you will ever find to do any sort of user upgrades to your machines.
    The other posters are right, coming here is a great resource, but google, youtube, ifixit, etc are all your friends when you need quick answers right away.

    I did use ifixit, the only problem is that my mac is no displaying on the monitor?

    If you don't have a monitor to view ifixit then how are you writing your post on this forum?

    be sure to carefully look over all of the connections and such. There are a few on the older minis that are easy to misalign. I seem to recall a few are on that back that easily come disconnected when putting it back together.
    Also, the first time I took apart one of the early intel minis I sheared off/damaged my IR, the sound card and the wifi! It is quite easy to do so.

    I'd also add that all these exhortations to "UTSF!" in the end only create a more hostile atmosphere on the forums in general. I mean if you don't feel like being helpful, why reply at all?
