I did not do much for some time with my CPU and I have decided I want to upgrade it as I saw mine was from 2009. I am not trying to get a really good one or anything but at least something that is better and I found AMD FX 8350 on Amazon (https://www.amazon.de/AMD-Octa-Core-Prozessor-Socket-Cache/dp/B009O7YUF6/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1548698058&sr=8-3&keywords=CPU+am3) after I checked everything and found no problems with compatibility so I bought it. Fast forward a few days and it arrives. I opened the package and installed the CPU and then I tried to start it. At first, it did as I expected and wanted but after a while, I realised that it actually did not. I only got to a black screen. I am sure that I installed it the correct way and I installed it with a lot of caution.

What have I done wrong?

What alternatives would be out there for upgrading my CPU?
