Good evening or morning lol
I had a M4A89GTD PRO.USB3 that I use to run. Now can't get it to post. So I bought another one
with all the RAM, CPU installed. It fires up ok. So I took them out and put them in the other and
still no post. So I called it dead.

But I flashed the BIOS, it was whay back at Version 1703. Way back. So I flashed it up to Version 3029
I checked the CPU list:
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M4A89GTD_PROUSB3/HelpDesk_CPU/
And I have some like
FX-4100(FD4100WMW4KGU),3.6GHz,4C,95W,rev.B2G,AM3+
Phenom IIX6 1045T(HDT45TWFK6DGR),2.7GHz,95W,rev.E0,SocketAM3,6-Core

So if they are on the list why will it not post with them installed?
Just trying to squeeze a little more power.

No I bought another M$A89GTD PRO/USB3 combo. Means with CPU and fan and RAM.
That one I was able to FLASH. And still will not work with them
(FX-4100(FD4100WMW4KGU),3.6GHz,4C,95W,rev.B2G,AM3+
Phenom IIX6 1045T(HDT45TWFK6DGR),2.7GHz,95W,rev.E0,SocketAM3,6-Core

Need to sort out what you are doing. The board you bought had a CPU installed, you then swapped it for the two you have to try to use those? And it does not work either? If both boards don't work with either of those CPUs it could be the CPUs are bad, or you have a very low quality PSU that can't run with it.

  1. OK here we go I had one that does not post
  2. Bought one that worked but came with it's own CPU, RAM.
  3. Flashed the #2 to the Version 3029 trying to get newer CPU's to work.
  4. I took the CPU, RAM from #2 that boots.
  5. Put it in #1 that does not post to see if #2 CPU, RAM will boot #1.
They did not make #1 post.
But running #2 with new flashed BIOS to Version 3029 but will not post
with these installed.

Phenom IIX6 1045T(HDT45TWFK6DGR),2.7GHz,95W,rev.E0,SocketAM3,6-Core
which is in the CPU list on:
https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M4A89GTD_PROUSB3/HelpDesk_CPU/
So it is #1 that does not post.
#2 is the one that I'm trying to upgrade the CPU.

Did you try only with the CPU and not moving the RAM around? It's not easy to say why the CPUs don't work with the board, what is the CPU in it that does work?
