I just bought a Core 2 Quad Q9550 CPU and tried to install into my Dimension 9200 comp.
However, when powering on it seems like POST is not even executed correctly.
No picture on the monitor, and no keyboard LED activity. The CPU FAN immedietly goes to MAX and then nothing happens.
I have updated to latest BIOS. I have tried to disconnect everything non-esential just to make sure that its not a power-supply issue. But still, no changes..
Which leads me to believe that either the CPU is broken, or the MB does not actually support the CPU.
Anybody have any idea?
Nope. These are the only quad cores supported -Dell part HU585 Q6600, 2.40GHzDell part MP626 Q6600, 2.40GHz
