Hello,

I have a question regarding my AMD FX-8120 and ASUS M5188.

I building a machine from scratch. After I hooked up all the components and hit the power button, the fans start up for a second but nothing else.

After some research I released the MOBO requires a BIOS update to support this processor.

I just want to confirm this is why it's not booting, I feel like the fans should stay on or get a POST error of some kind.

I'm going to purchase a cheap AM3 CPU to perform my BIOS update, but wanted to make certain that this is the issue.

Thanks

RMA, why should you pay for Asus not having an up to date bios on the boards.

I suppose you can buy an inexpensive CPU to do so. That's what happens when you try to use a new CPU in an older motherboard. Does the seller accept returns?
