So here is my problem. I have a HP Pavilion with a Asus A8M2N-LA motherboard that is currently running a 5000+ series processor Regular edition. 4gb of ram, with Vista 32bit. In an attempt of making this system last another year or so I want to install a Black edition for overclocking to accomodate a teen son that likes to play online occassionally.I bought the Black edition because I heard it can run at 3.0 Ghz pretty easily...it is used though and the seller said it was good, flip of the coin...I know. I checked the pins-all straight, I installed the processor, thermal paste, new heat sink and fan...start up nothing but black screen. I went back to my original processor fine again. The bios have the current revision (5.07), I pulled the battery (because someone said that might do it), I have searched for info on the black edition processor and found little to nothing other then reviews and AMD is pretty much useless because I found nothing on their site about this processor. I dont have another computer to test it on, but do know a repair place nearby that might test it for me. I ordered a new install of Windows 7 (because I dont like upgrades) and have backed up my harddrive on a external harddrive so that I can upgrade this unit to a new 1Tb harddrive running Win 7 at 64 bit. So should I wait and do the win 7 to 64 bit change and then try the processor again or am I just missing something that would make the overclocking unit work? Any help here would be appreciated.
