I'm a newbie and need some help. I bought an E6500 (wolfdale) to replace my 640 3.2mhz (prescott). They're both use 775 socket. But after installed the new one, i saw all fans spinning, harddrive noise but nothing else, no signal on monitor and no front light (on on-off button). Can some one point to me what I should do? PC is an emachine T5088. I asked the tech before I buoght the E6500 at Frys, he said it should be ok.
Thanks a lot
Please contact eMachine* and ask them if your eMachine* motherboard supports the E6500, please keep in mind that the fact that 2 processors are based on socket 775 does not necessarily make them compatible to a particular motherboard. That is the reason that you first need to contact the motherboard manufacturer, so they can provide you a list of fully supported processor models.
