well i bought this new proccessor (intel) and put it into my comp replacing the proccessor and the computer would not start up with the new proccesor later finding out that it was fried, so obviously i put back in the proccessor that originally belonged to the computer and when i booted it up the screen was not showing up just blank. I could not figure out why it was doing this because the computer was working just fine before i put in the fried proccessor, and when i boot up the computer i here the hardrive start up as well as the fans and cd-roms. if anyone can help me it would be really appreciated.
