Pc won’t post with new cpu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I decided to put the i7 4790k I had into my media pc (currently on an i5 4430) a ran a bios update and confirmed the bios number (2108) to be the latest bios. However the machine won’t post with the i7 in, I can confirm the i7 to be working having taken it out and tested in a friends machine and it will post fine if I put the i5 back in. Some sites say the only way to get the bios update to work properly is by using the windows bios installer, however I can’t find a windows 10 version and the windows 8 one won’t work. 

 

Thanks

  1. Is it on the CPU support list of your board?
  2. Can your PSU handle it?
  3. Have you tried resetting BIOS settings? Maybe something in there is just not playing well with the i7...

My heart belongs to AMD but that doesn't mean I furiously hate Intel or NVIDIA :)
