Bought an Intel Core 2 Duo e4500 processor the other day and when i removed my Celeron D from my motherboard and tried this processor. I hear three loud beeps then it happens again. Can anyone help me out here please and thanks. when i put my old processor back in, it works fine. Any help would be great;y appreciated thanks.

 

Intel Celeron D - the orking processor

Intel Core 2 duo - the one thats not working

Asrock G41M-VS2 - my motherboard

I also have 2GB of Kingston DD2 and a 450W Power Supply.

Your best bet is to go read your manual on your motherboard and find out what 3 lout beeps mean. There should be a code for it.

 

My guess is you either have a voltage issue or CPU support problem. I've never had good experiences with AsRock (Asus budget motherboard) however that doesn't mean much these days (my opinion that is).

A few things I forgot to mention.

 

1 - First thing I would do after checking the manual is I would flash the bios to make sure your running the latest on your motherboard

2 - Boot into the bios using the old CPU and reset everything back to default.

3 - Now throw the old CPU back in. Any luck?
