Unlocked CPU won't boot, blank screen.

March 5, 2011 at 04:12:38
Specs: Windows XP, AMD Phenom FX5000
But it will only boot normally after booting from safe mode. The unlocked cpu is not the problem. I already did some stabilty tests and didn't encounter any problems. Happens both on windows xp and 7. But the restart from safe mode work-around only works on xp. On 7 i can't even boot into safe mode.
Thanks.
specs:
Athlon X2 5000 unlocked to Phenom FX5000 quad core
2gb 800mhz apacer ddr2 ram
Biostar A785GE

See the supported CPU list in the link below. Note that you need one of the PCB versions listed there and the latest BIOS version.
