Got a CPU upgrade problem Dell XPS 410

alright ive tried over 3 times reinstalling this thing and makeing sure I got it right, the cpu im putting in is a intel qx6700ed

after i install it and go to power it on i get this every time

display code error 3, and 4 long beeps (cpu) from what the dell documentation says

this cpu is stepping b5 or somethin like that, could it be that its not booting up cause of that?? or is their something im missing

The bios has been updated to the latest, and the chip is in the proper alignment

can the stepping of the cpu keep it from booting?

  4. What CPU did you get (exact model, not just stepping)?
  5. I got this

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/120919736613?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

    INTEL QX6700 CORE 2 EXTREME SL9UL 2.66GHZ/ 8M/ 1066 /05B
  6. Well, that exact one doesn't look like it's supported. There may be a BIOS update, but I fear there isn't. The TDP for that chip is 130W and I think that may be over what the board can handle.
  7. alrighty, its no biggie, ill put it back on ebay :), and get the q6600 in exchange of it
  8. the TDP is what caused it not to boot, I see that now, possible that the q6700 might work?

    It's not on the list, but the TDP is right.
  10. theirs so many mixed results on the net, ive typed in google lol

    xps 410 running a q6700 and theirs people thats been able to do it, i guess it prob would work theoretically, considering tdp is lower than the q6600, and the fsb is the same, just faster clock im still checkin online to make sure
  11. Best answer
  12. yah, i think ill just go with the q6600 cause im planin on building a pc later this year hopefully, so ill save a bit by not goin with the q6700 thanks!!
