it could be alot of things did it work before u put in the 2.4 duron also was it compaitable with your mobo? because if your computer worked before u update the processor u could of fried the mobo if hte 2.4 wasnt compatible even tho it would fit in the socket also a bad chip could also fried the mobo so it could be a few things

Hi there

Do you happen to know what the make & model of your motherboard is please? It will make helping you easier if I know.

If the board isn't compatible (or was jumpered incorrectly) for the duron cpu, its possible you may have damaged the duron but unlikely you have damaged the motherboard as a result of that.

When you removed/reinstalled the original CPU, did you replace the thermal compound between the cpu & heatsink before powering it back up? If you didn't, I suggest you do not attempt to power the system on again until this is done. If you don't know the exact procedure for doing this, let me know & I will talk you through it.
