According to the documentation (Unfortunately I'm an Intel guy :) there's no technical reason why it shouldn't work. Both are AM2+ sockets and use the same version of the phoenix BIOS as the base level. What are you using to determine your CPU? The BIOS or an OS specific program.

Lights come on. Fans turn. No video.

Try an external monitor. If that works, reseat the video cable at the motherboard and at the LCD. Otherwise, the LCD is probably dead.

My desk top pc wont boot up im getting the first screen and the bleeps but then nothing what can i do


If you are receiving continuous beeps, it means that computer is not recognising the RAM (memory). In this you have to open the Tower and follow the below steps:

1. Turn OFF the computer
2. Open the flap of the Tower (Remove the screws from the back of Tower)
3. Now, On the Motherboard you will be able to see the RAM see the picture nanjia.jpeg

4. There should be two pins to unlock and remove it
5. Once removed, clean the terminal and replug it.
6. Turn ON the computer, it should take care of the issue

Thanks and regards,

Acer aspire m5100 has a good power supply but will not start

Try to check all the connection at the back of your pc,, try to unplug and open your cpu case,,, Maybe your Power cord is not properly installed .. find the power supply port in the motherboard and try to check it again if it is properly installed

A Gateway motherboard (again)

The LX6200-01 has AMD's 2.2GHz Phenom X4 9500. Any motherboard that can support the Phenom X4 chipset should do.
Biostar TA790GXB is one in particular.

Having problem with new games

What is the Name and model number of your motherboard

The nforce 430 is an older chipset model and may not use the full capacity of the Phenom processor ...some boards won't even boot and there are Bios updates available for others ...etc

The onboard graphics (geforce 6150 se) is negated by the 8800 GTX ...good card......the problem isn't your video card

Your also running PC5300 ,,667mhz ram ....if board is capable of PC6400 ...800mhz ....there could be another speedup

The bottlenck seems to be with the board and possibly Ram

(Again MB model and name)

Also make sure you have all the latest drivers for Vcards ...chipsets BIOS etc......
