Brand new CPU does not work

-
Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could help me! I bought a custom built AMD dual-core gaming Radeaon desktop. I bought a RAM upgrade for it.

It worked fine, then I bought a new CPU (AMD Athlon processor 3.8GHz). Whenever I set it up, the fan will spin. However, the PC itself won't boot up.

The PC has A68HM-E33-V2motherboard which, I believe, should be compatible. Can anyone tell me about what is wrong with the system? Thanks in advance!

Thank you
you probably need a BIOS update for the new CPU. I suggest you install the OLD CPU and do the BIOS update.

Good Luck
