new CPU but monitor cant find signal

September 2, 2010 at 15:55:38
Specs: Windows Vista, Intel E5400 Dual core
i was thinking my old intel 1.6 GHZ processor was getting rather slow for modern day games so i bought a new 2.7 GHz E5400 intel processor so i replaced the parts but when i turn it on the monitor wont find a signal, i put my old processor back in and works fine so i dont know what the problem is.

e5400 is fine cpu, but before buying any component for your system u should if it's compatible. If it's not u should buy new board and ram. As stated above list the system specs.

intel 945 doesn't support core microarchitecture cpu's. U need a new board with intel chipset (p45, p43, p35, g45, g43). The correct ram for e5400 is ddr2 400 (ratio 1:1) or ddr2 800 (ratio 1:2).

the link doesn't work for me.

All you had to do was look at your board specs before you bought a CPU.

Now you're going to have to decide what to do...buy a CPU that's compatible with your board, or buy a board that's compatible with your new CPU. If you buy a new board, be aware that you will have to reinstall Windows.
