Hello. As the title says, I may be having some issues with the processor that I bought off of Newegg.
I just built my computer yesterday, maybe a couple days ago depending on how old this thread gets. But anyways, when I hooked up everything and first pressed the power button, nothing was displayed, and there was no speaker. So me and a friend who's good at computers decided to switch from the GPU video out to the regular motherboard video out since we didn't have any drivers, and flipped the speaker around so it would work.
We tried again. No post beep, no screen display.
So we tested out something, where we took out the RAM and the speaker there worked with three beeps, indicating that there's no RAM installed within the system.
So, as time went on in trying to fix the problem, I turn on the computer again and now I get 5 beeps, indicating a processor failure.
If I remove the graphics card though, there's no beeps and no display.
I don't know what's wrong as of now, some people are telling me it's the processor being faulty. But it may be the motherboard itself, I don't fully know.
I hope someone can help resolve my problem soon.
