Hello fellow AMD users! I enjoy your coming here to try and help me, thanks!


Now, I finally recieved my AMD Phenom Quad Core CPU, and after A TON of screws removed...


I got my old AMD Athlon 64 x2 out! (Which I don't seem to find any info for.)


Now, the new cpu came with a thermal paste mini bag, so i dipped a bit in the center. (Just around a dot like anybody would normally do)


All's well after my first time ever changing a cpu, until...


It doesn't boot?

All I see is a black screen, but the charging lights and the light indicating the laptop was on was also on, but no display whatsoever.


Now I have heard (not fully understood)

That my motherboard can support certain type of processors/cpus (whatever you'd call them) only, and the socket type isn't the only thing that makes it compatible?

Now sadly my laptop is inaccessible, since it won't boot and even if I could change the new with the old, I'd need more thermal paste of which I don't have now.


I was hoping the people who have created this could help me, but I can't seem to know what my motherboard supports, and I can't seem to find records or anything without knowing what type it is. Also info about the old processor should help me find a compatible one, but I'm afraid it's much too old to find here because of these newer releases...

(Also they look gosh darn fast and cool, cheers for advancing more!)




So help me find processors compatible with my motherboard, so I suppose giving you the old model can help?

AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core 1.60 GHz (Ik SUCKS, right?)


Thank you very much! I'm a new user, forgive me if I haven't explained enough to you D:
