I am sorry to hear you are having problems with the system but let me help you with that.
If you disabled a core in the processor and the system booted up, means that there may be a problem with the internal components of the processor.
I recommend you running the Intel® Processor Diagnostic Tool that will help you testing the processor and it will generate a report of the product.
Here is the download link:
Here are some other steps you can try:
- Clear the CMOS by removing the battery for about 20-30 minutes.
- Test if possible a different Power Supply.
In case you are still having problems with the processor and if the previous processor you had is working fine I recommend you contacting your local support for them to help you with a possible replacement.
I removed the cpu and check the physical appearance and I've found out that there are 2 cpu gold pins slightly scarred. does really affect it's condition at all?
and I did try to log on to windows but doesn't work now I received bsod while 2 cores disabled sometimes I bump to machine check error. My h55 mobo have the latest BIOS update 0048 version. Maybe my mobo is not compatible with quad processor?? coz the owners cpu said that this is working on his gene 3 mobo.
I can't use intel tool right now..
At this point since you have done several troubleshooting steps and the issue persists, I recommend you to contact your local support for them to diagnose the unit and replace it if necessary.
