|I have troubleshoot this problem through searching the forum and other ways. e.g.|
-Reseated everything - hdd(disconnect sata/power connections), mobo 24 and 6 pin connectors, ram, battery, etc.
-Tried booting with no peripherals plugged in: video card, sound card, hdd, etc.
-Swapped to single stick of ram and tried my old sticks of ram
If I switch back to my old cpu I boot just fine. I am trying to get working a AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz Black Edition. My original cpu is a AMD Phenom II x4 955 3.2ghz Black Edition.
Windows 7 64
8gb Gskill Ripjaws
x3 - 500gb hdd
x1 - 120gb ssd
Mobo: Asus M5A87
Maybe the cpu is bad? I dont have another desktop to test this in. Could the wattage be causing problems? My current cpu is 125w and the new one is 95w? But according to my mobo specs I can use from 95w-140w.
