I've been looking for this problem on the forums but i can't find anything. I bought a new FX6100(BE) to replace Athlon X2 AD7550. I have inserted it in to the slot on my ASRock N68C-GS FX, My computer whirs up with everything like the fan, HDD, ETC... The problem is it doesn't boot, the screen stays blank and it doesn't flash the lights on the keyboard which it did with the old CPU. I've switched them back and everything works. could it be a faulty CPU? any help would be appreciated
More aboutcomp doesn boot
now that you have your old chip back in and it works fine.......... try updating the BIOS. then put the new processor back in and see if it boots.
look on asrock site for an "auto" bios update tool. if not you'll have to do it another way.
there may even be that tool on the disc that came with the motherboard ............ if it's even available.
