Recently, I installed a new CPU. It is an AMD x4 860k however, once I turned the power of my computer on, the monitor did not display anything and went to sleep mode. What is the cause? Thanks.
CPU: AMD x4 860k 3.7 Ghz
Motherboard: Gigabyte F2A78M-D3H FM2/FM2+ supported sockets
PSU: EVGA Bronze 500 watt 80+ Bronze power supply
RAM: 8 Gb DDR3 1600Mhz
Is it because of the PC components? Please let me know!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Clear the CMOS on the motherboard.
Also, check the motherboard web site to see if you need to update the BIOS.
I know that I have the latest BIOS because I updated it a while back, also I know where my CMOS is but I don't have the jumper or whatever you call it. How do I clear it then?
Would you please take a look at http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Bulldozer/AMD-Athlon%20II%20X4%20860K.html to find detail information on your processor. Well, this is an Athlon brand AMD APU processor. Or in other words, its integrated GPU has been disabled permanently, even though your motherboard provides video port, such as VGA/HDMI/DVI and so on, it would not work at all. So you should make sure you have already installed independent PCI-E Graphics card onto your system. Besides that, make sure your new processor functions well, and check or contact with Gigabyte to make sure your new processor is supported on your motherboard. I just wish you good luck!
