Bad Processors?

    Okay I have a few processors that just "dont" boot
    Palomino chips 1700+ and 1800+
    pads look okay so they didnt melt off ;) .. Core on both are in a nice solid
    purple shade, no heat markings at all, one of them looks like it has
    chippings missing down the side (of the core that is) so i am going to
    "assume" a chipped core (could I be wrong?), it shuts down maybee 5 or 10
    seconds after it starts (even in a board with no thermal protection)
    The other one just sits idle and the mobo says the cpu is bad..
    all in all do I just have 2 chips for the bin or is there something else I
    can try?..
