No Beep MB or CPU?

I recently was given an emachine that had a bad power supply and burned chip
on the MB.  I just tried the AMD 2200xp that was in it on a new ECS KT600
with a new 400 watt PS.

I hooked it up on the workbench with just ram (tried 2 different sticks) and
new AGP video card.  The cpu fan spun up as did the HD I had hooked up.  Got
no beeps or video.  Also tried an old PCI video card still the same thing.

I have 2 questions.  Does it sound like the AMD is bad and also can you harm
a motherboard by putting in a bad CPU?  What would be the best AMD to get
now for the price? (sorry 3 questions!)

if the mobo had a burned chip... it's just plain bad...
as far as the cpu itself  it could still be good...
you will need to test it in a known good mobo
