Default Bought a CPU and it won't work

This is the CPU that i bought: http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...MEWN%3AIT&rd=1

This is my motherboard: http://tw2005.giga-byte.com/Motherbo...cts_GA-7ZM.htm

When i installed the CPU the screen was blank, I double checked everything and still it was blank. So i then re-installed my old CPU and everything worked fine. So i have come to two conclusions; the new CPU is not compatable with my motherboard, or the CPU was dead from before. Could you guys please tell me what you think. Thanks

I think the CPU is dead. Make sure the motherboard will accept a 462 chip.

And this is why you don't buy things like that on eBay.

socket 462 and socket A are one and the same.

this is why it pays to check compatibility lists:

I never buy hard drives or processors on ebay, actually i buy very little used anymore. There is such a slight margin between new and used
try newegg

http://newegg.com/

EDIT: My bad it sayd 462 pin Socket A but, why would the CPU be 453pin? I always thought they WERE 462pin

Quoted from the link:


"453-pin organic PGA"
