Re: Need help! Just replaced E6700 with Q6600 and now comp doesn't work!
my motherboard said that it will support Quad Cores too, but unless i update my bios, i cant use Quad Cores.
I would recommend putting your Dual Core back in, and update it to the latest BIOS, then try again.
If it doesnt work, then my guess is that your CPU is faulty.
EDIT - what Version of BIOS do you have? Check the manufacturers website to see which BIOS supports your processor.
