No boot after swapping CPU

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
A couple months ago I got myself a G6950 CPU to play with. I managed to get a 4.4ghz overclock, did a stress test everything was going ok then the PC went in to sleep mode. When turning back on I could not get it boot. Tried different ram, disconnecting graphics card etc, still no boot.

What I did then was put my i5 760 back in my mobo and everything was OK, no problems what so ever.

Today I though I'd try again but this time as well no boot with G6950 I was now getting beeps. 1 long, 3 short. Checked on the beeps people say it's ram but it all works fine when my 760 is installed.

Put my 760 back in, all works fine.

For spec just look at my rig below. Just swapped the cpu over.

Just weird it was working one minute then not the next!!

sleep mode is bad for desktops...period, but I don't think I've ever had it work while OCing. Shut that off and you should be fine. If you ever can't start the machine for any reason you should clear the CMOS first. When you replaced the CPU it automatically set the bios to default for at least the CPU so that is why it booted.

Do both as stated above, good advice, especially disabling sleep mode. Sleep mode on both Intel/AMD rigs I've worked with has caused me NOTHING but trouble.

I disable it all the time now.

I'd already tried the cmos, still the same. Can't get it to boot, just blank screen.

What was your voltage with the 4.4 OC? I can't believe you fried the chip that easily.

With your original proc in, use the "set BIOS defaults" option in BIOS (or whatever it's called for your proc). Then try the new one again.

You might just need a BIOS update.

Re-read your original post.

Very rare, but is sure does sound like the processor.

Any beep codes?
