VH6-2 and Celeron 700 fried

I recently changed my motherboard and bought Abit VH6-2. The Celeron was on 105fsb and ran perfect. And then, my water block fell off the celeron(the clamp broke).
Here is my situation:
It boots, shows the first screen, and stops. It doesn`t even want to go to BIOS when I press delete. The whole thing acts very weird.
Did I destroy the Celeron? Please help me, any advice will do.

Bad luck, burekar! Sorry to read about this trouble.

I suggest trying the CII in a different mainboard. Then try a different CII or P3E on your mainboard. You didn't post if you have a CII 800 or faster, or a slower CII. If the stock FSB for your CII is 100 Mhz, there's a fairly good chance that it wasn't toasted. OTOH, if it's a 66 Mhz FSB Celly II...

I dunno what the geography inside your case looks like. Is it possible that the water block did more damage to other components when it broke loose from the CPU?

It works now. Guess I`m a very lucky bastard.
Here`s what I did:
I put the celeron in my freezer for two hours, reseted my BIOS with the jumper and blew all the dust and dirt away from the motherboard. I don`t know how, but it works just fine right now. My only problem now is how to attach the water block on the CPU firmly. I`ll think of something.
