Upgrade i5-650 Dual Core Cpu to i7 870 Quad Core, No video coming MSI H55M-E23

I have a Msi mother board H55M-E23 with the lastest bios from what the software was telling me. My pc right now has i5-650 dual core with 8 gb ram on a 240 ssd drive, and have win 10 pro.

This is the cpu:
Intel-Core-i7-870-2-93-GHz-Quad-Core-Processor-8-MB-Cache-Socket-LGA1156-CPU

So i got a cpu witch is i7-870 quad core and for some reason the pc starts but i don't get any video on screen , nothing "say no signal" , i have try other monitor still the same, i have try hdmi cable still nothing.

Can anyone give me some advice what i am doing wrong?

Thank you for any help!

  1. Is the CPU new, or used?

    Used.
  3. Only thing I can think of, is the 650 has HD gfx, the used one doesnt.

    Do the onboard video ports need a CPU with HD gfx ?
  4. It most likely is defective because even the oldest BIOS supports it.

    You have a good point. I presumed the OP has a discrete GPU and the Intel graphics are not used, but that may be incorrect.
  6. Not sure how to know if it has CPU with HD GFX...

    The info at Msi site:

    Socket 1156 CPU (Max Support) i3/i5/i7
    Baseclock/Hyper Transport 6.4GT/s Chipset Intel® H55 DDR3
    Memory DDR3 1066/1333/1600* (OC)
    Memory Channel Dual DIMM Slots 2
    Max Memory (GB) 8
    PCI-Ex16 1
    PCI-E Gen Gen2 (1x16)
    PCI-Ex1 2
    PCI 1
    SATAII 6
    TPM (header) 1 LAN 10/100/1000*1
    USB 2.0 ports (Rear) 6
    Audio ports (Rear) 3
    VGA 1
    HDMI 1
    DVI 1
    VGA Max Share Memory (MB) 512
    DirectX DX10 Form Factor M-ATX APS Y

    One of the mods at Msi forum said that the cpu should work with any bios , unless is defective.
  7. But do you have a discrete GPU in a PCI Express slot? If not then you are connecting the monitor to the motherboard, but that won't work since the i7-870 requires a discrete GPU.
  8. Forgot to mention that i have reverted back to win 7 and still not working.

    Also when i open the package up before install i notice 3 small spots of that cpu paste on it , on the part that connects with
    the mother board, so after installing and did not work , that paste there is questionable...

    Hello,

    In the pci ports i have 2 usb cards (usb2 and a usb3), but no video card in the pci ports. I am connected directly to mother board in the vga port, i also try the hdmi too thats on the mb but still not working.
  10. That can't work with that CPU; you need to add a video card. The i5-650 includes Intel HD Graphics, but the i7-870 doesn't.

    Any video card or?

    May try to get one from Fry's Electronics, i guess a cheap one as i don't play games. Need to know what are the specs that should be ? or as long is a
    pci-ex1 from what i see in specs.

    Thank you!
  12. A GT 610 would meet your requirements: http://www.frys.com/product/7147282?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG It will be much better than Intel Graphics on the i5-650.

    I presume that the PCI Express x16 slot is available.

    I have 2 ports available , a small one and one bigger, and i guess the big one is what i need.





    Thank you.
  14. The GT 610 will be installed in the blue PCI Express x16 slot.
  15. Ok Thank you! Will go at open time in about few hours my time to frys to get one and will report back.

    Thank you and appreciate your time and help friend!
  16. Once installed, you'll need to install the drivers.

    Will that be from dos? or install the card with i5 cpu and then replace the i7?
  18. Install the GPU and the system should POST with the i7. Are you really running DOS? You don't use Windows?

    Oh sorry, i meant to install / boot from cd, not Dos my bad.
  20. No, you boot Windows and then install the drivers.
  21. Hello,

    Update: I manage to get it fix. That video card did the trick and the video come on , and when to windows! The i7 cpu works great!

    Thank you for helping! Appreciate a lot to all that wrote and give some advice.
