My 6 bucks E2160 arrived today (that was really quick!), so i couldn't resist doing some more test annnnd SUCCESS!!!! My CPU was toasted, i think the guy in charge of assembling my pcb was short on thermal paste .... never saw so few and considering those machines are up like 24/7 this was short term suicide. It only took one automated reboot to be greated with CMOS clear screen!

So here is my complete procedure in case some people are in trouble:

1- unplug power from wall
2 - remove battery
3- put jumper on pin 6-8 on FP (do not use the jumper next to the battery, it's a trap ;) )
4- plug back new battery
5 - plug power
6 - let it cycle : fans should spin for a few seconds then stop , then start to do it again until cmos clear screen appears (see attachment)
7 - unplug power
8 - put the jumper back to its original position
9- plug power
10 - Enjoy :)

Additional notes:
- I used a single 2GB DDR2 800 stick on slot 1 and it works like a charm
- I did the whole procedure above with geforce plugged in and output on its DVI0 port
- Dipswitches were all off except dip 5.
- No JVS IO was plugged to the mobo during the process

Final note:
Thanks to everybody who helped me during my troubleshooting journey, i really appreciated you kindness :)

I was following this thread as I just recently bought a ring edge 2 with no video. I followed the procedure to replace the CMOS battery, tested the video card in another system and verified it's good. I haven't been able to verify the CPU or the memory. But upon boot up i don't get video and get BIOS beeps. Not a specific number it just keeps beeping as long as the power is on. So I can't correlate it to any BIOS code essentially. I'm wondering if any of you have any other insight?
