Hello, I have a problem, My computer wont boot up, no signal at the monitor.
The story is, I had a MSI motherboard and it died, so I had warranty and I got a new motherboard.
It didnt work but at least it turned on, so I buyed a new GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2H rev.1.1 motherboard,
and the same thing happenes, the computer boots but nothing comes on. So I tested the power supply, ram, graphic card, and the processor, and the Gigabyte motherboard with another Processor, it boots.
But with mine processor it doesnt boot! I have a AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+, and the one that worked was AMD Athlon 64 3200+. The next day some good friend of mine told me to update the bios to a newer version, so I did
it, and nothing. It still doesnt work! I have no idea why it doesnt work with my processor but it works with a older one. So everything is good and works, the bios has the newest update F3, but nothing comes on the monitor, fans work, lights work, I am sick of this computer, but this is my computer:

Motherboard: GA-MA74GM-S2H (rev. 1.x)
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+
Power supply: Corsair 550Watts
RAM: Kingstone DDR2 1GB, 667 Mhz
Bios: Newest F3 update from the gigabyte site.
What could be going on? Please help, im out of ideas.

it may be that the motherboard does not support the processor.

check the motherboard manual to get all the details about the processors it support.
