Is bios making my machine not post? k7s5a
Hi new to forum not new to computers.
I recenly bought an amd 2200+ thoroughbred cpu to put into an ECS k7s5a pro ver 5 motherboard. The duron thats in it is only a 1.15 ghz and it is a decent all around internet performer.
So anyway I drop in the new cpu and I get a short burst of energy through the board. Enough to make the fans move a quarter turn. Then until I unplug the power supply from the motherboard, it's totally dead. I put the duron back in and it works. I tried this several times. The chip is brand new unless someone glued new cussion pads on it.
I think it's a dead chip. But I wounder if my original bios could stop it from posting. I thought it might not detect the right speed with my old bios, but could it keep it from posting?
I have never flashed a bios, I guess I never had to. I have read the warnings, and they say don't fix something that isn't broken. Well the duron isn't broken. Any advice would make my brain quit hurting so much.
