I'm really stuck, I just got a AMD phenom II x6 1090t but ive installed it all, and my pc wont boot. I've tried resetting the CMOS, but still no avail, the old cpu works fine. Im thinking maybe i need to update the bios? How would i go about doing that?
My board is Foxconn A74ML-K. It's am3 compatible but I'm unsure if I need to update bios.

I think you must to update your BIOS because your mobo is am2+/am3 compatible , and phenom II x6 1090t is newer then your mobo.
