AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Troubleshooting

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I recently bought a new heatsink for my CPU and when I attempted to replace it, I broke the pins on the CPU in the process. As a result I decided to upgrade to an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T and when I finished installing it and the new heatsink and I power on my computer, the fan on the CPU's heatsink won't power on even though the power cord is in the appropriate socket on the motherboard. In addition, three red LEDs labeled D1601, D1602 and D1603 light up on the GPU. The fan on my GPU (a Radeon HD 4870) is running on high and is obnoxiously loud, but I am not getting any display on my monitor. Does anyone have advice as to what may be causing this problem? Could this possibly be due to a damaged motherboard, CPU, or perhaps the GPU?

Or try resetting your CMOS. If you have to update your bios, did the pins on your old CPU BREAK or did they just bend? If they're just bent, carefully bend them back into place and it will be fine, then you can update your bios for the x6 or just return it if you don't need it.

From the sounds of it Dwood is right . If you have any friends the has even a dual core you could use for a half hour than you could put that in to boot up the computer and update the bios to the latest version. I had that same kinda issue when I went from a dual core to a quad core lucky I had a friend with a chip laying around and was able to update the bios for the new quad core chip I had gotten. Make sure that the chip your gonna use is an AM2 AM2+ to update the bios.

Also you may want to look into getting a AM3 board with some DDR 3 memory in the near future. Some options for your new chip will not be available on a AM2 board. That means that chip will not be running at it's full potential.
