    Hi.
    So I got a new CPU a couple of months ago (FX-6300) and tried using it on my PC. But after a while the monitor loses the signal and I can only cut the power to the PC to restart it. I thought it was an issue with the temperatures so I waited a bit so the weather gets colder. Today I tried putting the CPU and the same issue happened but this time after 5 minutes of usage (no matter what I do).

    So the problem is the CPU for sure, but I don't know what could cause the issue and what to do to stop it.

    Mb: msi 760gm-p21 fx
    Gpu: nvidia gt 1030 oc
    Ram: 4gb ddr3

    Hope someone can help.

    When you installed the new CPU: 1 did you install the BIOS for that CPU, 2 did you install the chipset driver for that CPU?

    The chipset driver remains the same however that cpu needs bios ver HB or later. What bios are you running?

    Thank you guys for your help. I did indeed have an outdated version of bios and that's what was causing the problem.
