A8m2n-la ad5000odj22gi not booting

I have an HP Pavilion a1600n with an Asus A8M2N-LA motherboard. I want to upgrade to a amd athlon x2 5000 ad5000odj22gi (this is a special chip, 45nm, like a phenom with 2 cores disabled.) Nothing happens when I plug it in and boot. Not sure if it incompatible, or bad cpu.

    It probably does not support that CPU only the older ones being a true AM2 board.

  3. There is alot of information out there, with wikipedia and other sources, but I didn't seem to get a clear idea regarding backward compatibility. I don't even think AMD has a page for this CPU on their website. Thanks!
