|Hey! I recently purchased a AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition processor from Newegg. I place the CPU in just fine and dandy with thermal paste and the heat sink on just right. When I go to turn my computer on everything starts up (fans, etc.), but nothing comes up to the screen.|
When I go back to my old AMD Phenom II X4 Black Edition everything boots up correctly and my computer is working.
First I thought it could have been me seating it incorrectly, so I redo that, and once again it does the same thing as I stated above.
So I put in my old processor and once again that works correctly.
Next I think it may be that my motherboard does not support the AM3 socket type for the hexacore processor, but when I check it does support it: http://www.foxconnchannel.com/Produ...
I'm using a Foxconn A7GM-S motherboard with the most recently updated BIOS version 799F1P11 (I checked on start up)
Did I miss anything? Or do you guys think the CPU is dead?
