    so I upgraded from a i3 2120 to a 17 3770 and when I put the i7 in, the computer turns on for 2 seconds then shuts back off. Just the fans. When I put the old cpu in, it worked like before, worked fine. But I’m thinking maybe it’s my bios or something but I updated my bios.

    After you mount the i7-3770, reset the BIOS and try power it up. If it doesn't, verify if the processor is compatible with your motherboard by checking the compatibility at motherboard manufacturer. Not all motherboards for Intel processors can handle high power processors such as the i7-3770, so checking the compatibility list should be the first thing to check before buying the processor.

    To reset the BIOS, all you need to do is find the jumper for BIOS or CMOS reset and move it to the other pins for a second and then move it back. Do this when the power is off and the AC is disconnected.

    I checked that the cpu is compatible and it is. I tried resetting the bios and now it’s powering up but I don’t get any signal on the display

    Does the serial number of the processor match the serial number on the CPU box. Also is there a hologram sticker on the box. Did you handle the processor by the edges. If not, carefully clean the bottom of the processor with isopropyl alcohol and try again. After reseting the BIOS, the motherboard may do multiple power cycles. If it doesn't work, contact the store to get a replacement. If you can't get a replacement, then you can try contact Intel to get a replacement. If you can't, try to get a refund and buy pre-built computer using an i7-3770.

    Where did you bought your i7 processor?

    List the brand and model of the components of your computer.
