I have a 5 years old computer with an AMD athlon 1200, 512 Mb ram, nvidia GeForce fx 5900 video card and have just tried to upgrade my processor to to an AMD 2600 which I bought at a computer fair (stop laughing). On restarting my computer, I could hear the processor working, although no bleeps but the was nothing on the monitor, black screen, although the power light was on. Also
keyboard appears to be dead, no caps lock nor num lock LED showing.
Tried putting old processor back in but same result. When I press the restart button you can hear the computer restarting but nothing on the monitor.
Cheers to anyone who can help without telling me its going to cost a lot!
