i got a duron 1600, 256mhz pc266 ddr on a asrock k7s8x motherboard. lately ;lately, i tried testing a sempron 2400 on my motherboard. it did work quite wellbut after a while it just black out. i put back my original processor but it does not boot up anymore. there's power and all, but no display. what possibly the problem? my system before i test was working properly before i test the other processor.

did you reset the bios after replacing the processor?

assuming you set the bus speed to 166MHz for the Sempron, you did set it back to 133MHz for the Duron?

You need to do a Cmos rest, if that doesn't work try 'reseating' your cpu and all PCI/AGP cards.

Good luck

Make sure you unplug the computer from the wall socket before attempting to do a CMOS reset
