Question about AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Dual Core Processor - Socket 939 (AMDX23800)

Processor upgrade problem

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...

I just bought your AMD Athlon ll #x2 255 to replace replace my old one. I see in the instructions that I have a socket 754 and the new one is different. I/m trying to upgrade my computer. i also got y


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Roger Gross.

Yes your new AMD Athlon 2 X2 255 processor is made to fit both AM2+ or AM3 sockets.

Since your current socket is 754, you will need a new mainboard and DDR3 RAM to go with your new processor.

ASUS make very good mainboards. The ASUS M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3 mainboard is a good companion for your new processor. Install DDR3 1333MHz CL9 RAM from either Kingston or Corsair. 2X2GB modules should do nicely.

Feel free to contact me should you require additional assistance.

Take care!

Asus A8N SLI DELUXE MOTHERBOARD AMD PROCESSOR


When you reinstalled the processor, did you put thermal compound on it? Not putting thermal compound on an AMD processor could burn it. I've tried this before, thinking it was okay since i tried an Intel not placing any thermal compound, and there was burning smell on the AMD processor. If the problem before was the power supply, you might also want to check the motherboard. Defective power supplies destroy the motherboard as well. You may also want to check the if the power button was placed back to its pins. You may have missed that or the wire might have come loose.

System wouldn't Boot


If your CPU or memory were an issue your Asus board would sound off with BIOS beeps. Asus uses the Award BIOS & you can see what these beeps mean at the link below. Regaurding your PC not able to boot is an issue with your PCIE/PEG video card-in relationship with BIOS setting & the SLI switch card mode that came with your board. When running 1PEG video card you must set this in the BIOS to Auto & you need your SLI switch card connected in its slot. By default, the EZ Selector card is set for a single graphic card. When you install dual PCIE graphic cards on A8N-SLI series motherboards, please make sure EZ Selector card set to the Dual Video Card side and properly inserted. Link to Award Bios beep codes: http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm
Will come in handy.
Reading the FAQ's at Asus site will help you better understand your A8N-SLI Deluxe. You'll need to fill in the, "Please Select the Product" first: http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us
