I just upgraded my cpu to a Intel Xeon Processer x3220. 2.4ghz quad. When i start my computer..nothing seems to happen. Nothing on the screen. The cpu and the graphics card fan seems to be on. When i put my old processer in, it worked fine, but not the new one.
The first thing one must do before trying to do upgrades on a prebuild, is check with the manufacturer. You must understand the prebuilds are puposely built with very little upgradability. Especially when it comes to processors. Normally, you are pretty much limited to a small upgrade in speed of the same exact processor you have already. Different processor families very, very seldom work at all, and if they do, they don't always work correctly.
