Question about AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Dual Core Processor - Socket 939 (AMDX23800)
I have just bought a AMD 3800 x2 processor to upgrade my computer. I am currently running a 3200 in a ASUS A8N-SLI DeLuxe motherboard. On replacing the processor, the computer will **t even perform the POST routine. I have flashed in the latest BIOS and reset the CMOS, but ** change. It still works perfectly with the old processor back in, so all the peripherals would seem fine. Any ideas?
If you are completely sure the FSB is right, I mean that the motherboard supports the CPU, and that there is no jumpers out of place... just reset the BIOS (take the motherboard lithium battery off and let the PC completely without power and any other cable connected) take the RAM out and all devices too. Arround 10 minutes later put just the CPU and the lithium battery in their places and boot up the system.
Last try is to disassemble all and just try with motherboard on a table with only RAM and Video. If you do this BE CAREFUL not to place the motherboard over any metallic thing, just a piece of wood is better than anything.
If this does not work, take the CPU to Guarantee...
