I bought an AMD 3700+ engineering sample processor off e-bay. The seller stated that the FSB needs to be set up manually in bios.. easy enough. Ou with the old processor and in with the 3700. Power on...black screen... all components have power i.e. drives, graphics, monitor (no pictire) etc.
So, out with the 3700 and back in with the old one, update bios to latest version for Abit KV8 pro and back in with the 3700... power on and guess what? Black screen all components have power i.e. drives, graphics, monitor (no pictire) etc.
Question is has anyone any idea what the [bleep] is going on? I'm running out of thermal paste.......Any help or advce would be appreciated.
