Asus motherboard cpu LED
Newly built desktop with ASUS M5A99X EVO motherboard and AMD FX4170, 4.2 GHz CPU. At power up the red CPU LED light is on. No Beeps, no video display, fans work, even CPU fan. What's wrong?
Your asus board requires bios file 0813 to run the 4170; I suggest you find an older cheap am3 cpu such as one of the sempron 14x series; newegg had the 130 for $16.99 in the open box section the other day. Or you can send the board back to asus; it's probably just as cheap to buy the cpu then sell it when you're done flashing.
