    Hi there, i bought a cpu at ebay: AMD Athlon 64 M 3700+ 2.4GHz 1MB Socket 754 Newark
    and installed it , but computer wont boot.

    I have an Asus K8V SE Deluxe socket 754. The cpu even came with the heatsink. Everything turns on but i dont get signal to monitor; all fans turn on. When i removed the cpu, and put the old one...amd 64 3200 it works like a charm.

    I email the seller asking that if this cpu will work on my desktop and he said it was a mobile cpu and that will work on both, laptop and desktop, im confused. Please help.

    Could be you need a bios upgrade. You need to check the specs on your motherboard to see if it is possible to use that high of CPU.

    Sounds like a overheating or a HTT problem. Try a BIOS flash to reset the HTT speed to that of your new CPU.
