i5 CPU or MOBO Damaged?Help!!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
The other day I purchased a GIGABYTE H61M-D2P-B3 mobo with an Intel i5 2500 processor aswell and when I was securing the i5 into place with the metal stick thing it was really hard and I had to push with a lot of force and it put 2 dents on the side of my i5. Yes, the mobo is a Socket LGA 1155. So I start up my computer and I keep hearing continuous beeps from the motherboard and I don't know what it is.....I tried fixing the ram positioning but it still persists. What should I do? Bring my computer there and let them fix it? Exchange the mobo? Exchange the i5?

I have a CPU Water Cooler on the i5 right now but I've checked this website for my BIOS Beep Code and it says that the Endless Beep is due to RAM

This is an image of what my cpu looks like with the dents on the side in black

The RAM I using right now is G.Skill Sniper 2x4GB DDR3 RAM

RAM problems seem pretty weird to me because you only have two RAM slots and you practically can't do it wrong.

When slotting in the ccpu did u align up the corners? Like triangle to triangle?
post #6 of 15
Have you inserted the RAM in the correct dimm slots? The manual should state which slots to use. For dual channel it is advised for sandybridge to use either slot 2 and 4 or slot 1 with 3 (A2 and B2 or A1 and B1). On that note make sure the RAM is firmly seated, sometimes it goes unmissed and that can be a problem.

Could you also go here and fill in your system spec: http://www.overclock.net/specs.php

Thanks.

You didn't align the CPU and tried force it in? NEVER FORCE CPU INTO THE SOCKET!

You MOBO is most likely dead because of bent pin. In return CPU cannot read RAM.

I made sure the Processor was aligned and everything before I pushed down on the stick. My Mobo only has 2 Slots for RAM but when I'm pushing down on the RAM so secure one of the white things don't snap on and I have to do it myself. Is that the problem?

You need to push the RAM down and let the white thing snaps in on its own.

And did you make sure the metal bracket goes into the bottom screw before pushing the socket stick? That dent on your CPU means you did something wrong as you install the CPU (and you forced it). Check MOBO for bent pin.
