|I have an eMachine T5062 with an AMD64(socket AM2) processor. I also have an AMD Phenom (Socket AM2) processor I would like to install. I have attempted installation but I seem to have failed somehow.|
First Attempt: Installed processor, attempted boot. Failure.
Second Attempt: Installed processor, cleared CMOS, attempted boot; also failure.
In both cases after installing the AMD Phenom, upon pressing the power button the fans would spin for half a second and stop. The blue light on the power button did not come on. I tried holding down the power button for a few seconds and this caused the fans to continue spinning but the system would not power off unless I disconnect the power. I put the old AMD64 back in and the system works fine.
Am I missing a step? Do I need to update the BIOS? Is the Phenom dead?
