Crosshair IV Formula Beta Bios Doesn't work with AM3 CPU?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey! I have a problem, I got rid of my FX8150 CPU and put that in another computer, however I put a amd athlon 620 x4 in there and it wont start up at all, it just turns on then turns off after half a second with a red cpu light. Is there anyway to flash the bios with another computer while it's turned off? Or is my board now bricked?

It should work. The C4F BIOS has some bugs though, perhaps you triggered one of then when swapping CPUs? Try removing the battery from the motherboard for a while to completely reset the BIOS.
