well, i got the new processor. Plugged it in made all my connections, changed to the new fan and turned the pc on.
Well, it powered up, didnt beep like it was loading and my screen did not light up. Rechecked everything, still nothing. I tried the old processor and works fine.
Could this be bad bios, or bad processor?
That mobo does support the new phenom II processors but you will probably have to update the bios and you might want to go to the manufacturers website or call/ email them if you need help doing that. It will run the newer PHENOM II just try updating to bios 1406 as I read from an online forum.
If you do get the newer bios and the CPU still does not work then YES it is a bad CPU.
Also I will go ahead and ask what power supply do you have in the pc? The make and model can be found on the sticker (LOOK ON side of the Power supply).
