  1. Not true. Your motherboard has an integrated Rdeon HD 3000, so you don't need a dedicated GFX card to boot up your PC. If you have the board and considering running the FX 4100, first upgrade to the latest BIOS and then put on the FX 4100.
  2. Hi thast what i thought no idea why he is telling me that , its just i have the board and it runs fine with an amd sempron on the latest bios but once i instal the fx4100 the board does nothing no beeps no display no post any ideas

  3. I checked CPU compatibility list and the FX 4100 is upgradable since BIOS 0510.

    Make sure you have this BIOS version running. When you put back the Sempron, do you see a signal on the screen?
  4.

  5. sounds weird. Maybe you should contact Asus support for this problem. Your system works perfectly with other CPUs except the FX....So you're problem is the Asus board.
