i recently brought a new cpu (amd fx6100) to instal on my new pc build i braught anew bored and a cheep Athlon dule core just to get it running as my old mother bored destroyed my cpu when it failed ( not cool)

when i install the new cpu ( clap water-cooler down plug it ill in blah blah) when i press teh power button the HDD light comes on i get no beeping or post bios button then it contusion to sit their doing nothing

when i put my old cpu back in the pc starts up fine 100% fine

Try re-seating it again and push down a tiny bit when you place it in.

When you say hdd light do you mean on the front of the case or the red light on the mobo
