Ok so i decided to upgrade to a better CPU from
the one i have, my old is a Intel Pentium4 duo core 2, 2.16ghz, LGA775
E6400 cpu, the new one i just baught, the one that won't work, is a
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 3ghz, 1333MHz, 6MB LGA775 E8400 processor.
problem arises here, see i installed this new cpu just right, with
thermal and everything, but when i go to turn on the pc, it DOES NOT boot up,
screen don't even turn on, and the fan runs as high as it can, it won't
even get to the bios or anything, and my diagnostic lights are 1, 3,
I read that it should work with my pc just fine but what
i have done to try and make this work are as follows
made BIOS to default, reinstalled OS, reset battery on motherboard,
installed newest BIOS drivers, switched around memory, switched around
components, and that's all i can think of doing.
My main pc specs are as follows
XPS410, Vista Home, Nvidia 8800, 4gigs ram, old processor as posted, the
motherboard is a Dell OWG855, chipset Intel.
I need to fix this, any help in
very appreciated, Thank you.
