Hello gang

Well I did it now (sigh)

I swapped out my old cpu for (new to me) cpu, everything went well, set all the jumpers and pushed the power button, everything came on drives/ fans but no display. I thought maybe I got ripped off so I put my old cpu back in and now I'm not getting any display with that one, everything was fine before I took it out. I should have just left it alone :mad:

please tell me this is an easy fix!

Any info would be great

Thanks
Bobby

You said you moved the jumpers, move them back to where they were and try the old cpu.

Sorry if I didn't give any info the first time

This is an old system my 6 year old plays word/math games and that's about it.

the old cpu I was replaceing is an intel P55C and I tried installing a P54C

I believe it has 65mb of ram
The mother board is a ASUS TX97-XV
PSU SPI FSP250-61GN AMD

I set all jumpers according to mother board manual
http://pu-server3.pu.../tx97xv-113.pdf

I was wearing a braclet and followed the intructions, I made sure the cpu is seated (3 times)?????
I'm stumped
