yesterday i received a new cpu for my pc (core 2 duo e6600). i used to have a pentium D, i installed the cpu (e6600) and everything correctly and i turned on the pc and the fans spin and everything, but i get no display on my monitor! i cant even reach the BIOS! i cant see completely nothing! then i put back the old cpu (pentium D) and it worked like normal! the pc turned on like it supposed to, i got display!, i only dont get display when i install the e6600 cpu! my motherboard is fully compatible with this cpu! http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Pro...nuID=1&LanID=0
here is what i have tried:
checked the powersupply
checked if the cpu was on the slot well put
my video card is not dead! it fully works!
and i also updated my bios to: v1.09, 9/7/2007
all my pc specs i can think of:
power supply: ULTRA 550 watts
Video Card: nvidia GeForce 9600 GSO
I saw your other post. You said you bought the CPU from someone. You may have bought a dead CPU. Did you see the chip work in another system?
If you reinstall the original chip, does your system work?
i did not saw it working on another system because i bought it from ebay, but! when the core 2 duo is on, the display does not gives image and the computer stays on.
and when the pentium D is on, the computer works perfectly.
