Hello, i want to change my old cpu g3220 to i3 4170, socket is the same, but whe i try and start my PC with the new processor the power button light on the front of the computer doesnt turn on , but all the fans are going and the motherboard light on. When I switch to my old CPU it works perfectly, any ideas?

  1. Hi, Try updating to the latest version and test again.
  2. Hi

    reset cmos using jumper when changing CPU
    before powering on with new CPU

    (read user guide for location, disconnect mains power while doing this, powering off is not good enough)

    also check compatible cpu list at Asus web site to see if bios needs updating

    Tried everything, nothing is working, is it possible that my motherboard is broken and dont work with new cpu?

    Hey, tried, still nope
  5. It might be a CPU issue, If new, try RMA-ing it, for ruling out a CPU issue.
