Help with integrated graphics

I just built a computer with a h61m-plus mobo with 4gb ripjaws ddr3 and I just put a i5 3570 in it and hooked my monitor up to it via dvi-d. When I turned it on I did not display anything. I am totally confused.

  1. An H61 requires a BIOS update before you can use an Ivy Bridge Chipset. You should return it and get one with a B75 chipset as those work out of the box. You could also order a $60 pentium and update the bios with that (assuming you get a sandy bridge pentium)
  2. So do I have to use a graphics card in it

    That won't help if the CPU is incompatible.
  4. So then should I just get a new mobo

    I just realized that I had 2 old pentiums that came out of a old dell. I believe that they are pentuim 4s. Will those work?
  6. Wrong socket. You need LGA1155. I think those are probably LGA775.
  7. Is there a way to update the bios without a cpu?
  8. Would it be better to buy a new mobo or buy and return a cheap cpu to update the bios?
  9. Best answer
    It is simply better and easier to buy a new motherboard with a B75 chipset. Much less hassle and you avoid accidentally installing the BIOS incorrectly where it would simply "brick" the mobo to the point where you cannot even restore the original BIOS. Thus, the mobo would more or less be a brick since you can't do anything with it.
