Hi guys, my current PC runs with an AMD Athlon x2 4400+ @ 2.3GHZ
I recently purchased an AMD Athlon X2 7550 @ 2.5GHZ , for some reason this is incompatible with my computer, as when i switch it on the fans just go into overcharge and does not start up. Does anyone know the reason for this?

Did you check compatibility before buying?
Have you tried re-setting your bios before powering up.
I would try resetting the bios, but i've got no idea how i would go about doing that, if you could describe how i'd give that a go...
It should work, its an AM2 motherboard, which is compatible with AM2+ cpus, which the new cpu is.
