Optiplex 745 - Intel E5200 CPU Not Working

This question is not answered

Hi,

I have a 745 which I have just bought an E5200 processor for which doesn't seem to work. I end up with lights 1, 3 & 4 lit which is not explained in the manual.

Have I made a msitake with this CPU, should I have bought a E6xxx series?

  • Hi,

    I just tried an Intel E5200 CPU in my OptiPlex 210L, the front led just goes Orange and then nothing else. It would be great if they could add support for the E5200 CPU on the OptiPlex series.

    regards

  • Hi, did you ever manage to resolve this? I bought a barebones Optiplex 745 and put in the E5200 CPU. Turning on just gives an orange light on the botherboard and the fan spinning at a high rate - no error beeps.

  • HI, Yes I have and I found it was down to using the wrong CPU, once I managed to find out the correct type and install one its runs brilliantly.

     

    Trouble was I bought a new Motherboard and PSU before I found out. I got this from an Ebay advert.
