is the new cpu.
now before the new hardware the old dell monitor worked fine. now its constantly orange when powered on even if the pc is on and off. and when i unplug it , it the light goes green or w/e but says no source avail .

i got a new OS to install and thats why i was formating before .

i have one stick of ram DDR2 in the first slot just incase, i only have the install hd in just incase (sata), i have two cd drives i CAN use but only the newer one hooked up via sata as well and ofc keyboard and mouse.


know i really hope that cpu and mobo work good together lol. the psu is a 600w one ive had and all plugs are in. there is NO extra sound of video card it is all default motherboard stuff.

really need help. been off that pc for work for almst a week now. dunno what kinda error it is or how to fix it

ps yes ive googled for 3 hrs for this , some ideas but no go .

Have you made sure to connect 12 volt power to the 4 pin mobo connector? When powered on, verify the CPU fan is turning. On most systems you should hear one short beep (if the speaker is connected), and the keyboard lights should flash on/off sometime during power on self test. If those are good but you syill have no display, move on to the monitor.

Some monitors auto-detect if the input is analog or digital, but some dont. They have a 1 or 2 switch, or the input is set by an on screen menu. You might also try another cable type (i.e: if you are using DVI, try VGA).

are you talking about the 24/4 pin thing? if so that is all connected (i think this is for power to the mobo right? the power light on the mobo works so its gettin power.

all fans working, no system beeps, and usually when they do they come from the mobo not any speaker, (ive never had a pc beef through a speaker) keyboards lights have never lit up until a few seconds into booting (this keyboard is a smallk flelxible one) mouse is a optical wired mouse and cant tell if works until its loaded up which it has no OS yet so no way

You won't get a beep unless you install a speaker on the motherboard. Most Motherrboard Manufacturers no longer include a speaker built onto the motherboard.

Please post the Power Supply Make and Model number, And the Amperage on the +12Vdc Rail(s).

What CPU cooler are you using? If I read right you bought an OEM Processor and those don't usually come with a Heatsink and fan.

The processor you have is supported by your motherboard on version 1.00G and later that means it is supported on the 1.01G as well.
