Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Starting problem. I have change my porcessor 1.6 to 2.8 there after my system do not start, power supply is ok . There is no beep sound and no display.

Answers :

Well there are MANY things to consider and to do when changing the processor:

Is your motherboard able to accept the new chip (speed, manufacturer, socket type...)?

Did you set all of the jumper on the mother board correctly according to the manufacturers info (if this applies to your board)

Did you make the necessary adjustments in the BIOS; Your old processor may have been overclocked and the new one cannot be..... and so on,

If all of the above is ok:

Did you bend a pin or 2 when installing the new processor.

Is the processor fan connected to a power source, some motherboards will shut down if it senses the CPU fan is not working.

I am sure I am forgetting some steps, But as a last resort-Did You put the old processor back in and see if the computer works?
If so you probably missed an above step, if NOT you may have pressed to hard installing the new cpu and damaged the socket or even worse cracked your motherboard. I would also check any installed card and ram on the mother board, they could have gotten knocked loose and need to be reseated.
Check whether the mother board support that processor. Check whether the processor is changed correctly.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.
