Welcome Everyone,

Since I bought my new CPU I'm having problems. I got from a Intel Duo 2 E7400 to a Intel Quad core Q6600. Since my new CPU my PC won't get to the boot screen. It's stuck on black screen and after 2 minutes my PC powers off.
My specifications are as follow:

  • 120GB SSD
  • 8GB RAM
  • Nvidia Geforce 710GT 2GB MSI.
  • Ewent Professional Power Supply 500W
  • HP H ig41 uATX
I really appreciate if anyone could help me. Thanks in advance :)
 
This doesn't seem to support any of the 65nm CPUs from its era, just the 45nm ones. Motherboards in prebuilts aren't known for having wide compatibility.
That's why you don't look by motherboard and look by system model number as that's how you'll find other people that have gotten things to work.

Depending on the system, I know the q6600 will work with certain HP prebuilts because I have parts for a retro build that's based on a HP dx2300.
