Hi, I have been running my i3 for a long time no problem on my mother board (asrock h81 hds r2.0) yesterday I bought an i5 4460 3.2ghz.  Today I swapt my i3 for the new i5 and tried running it.  It didnt work.  I plugged my i3 back in and run perfectly.  Tried updating the bios from the old 1.20  to a mor modern 1.30 eventhough its supposed to run no matter what bios version.  I have been reading online and tried resetting cmos, removing graphics cards, drives, Leaving 1 stick of ram etc, but just cant get it to work.  Any ideas?

Welcome to the forums!

 

I suggest, if you haven't, taking the motherboard out of the case and trying to run the CPU in the most bare configuration possible. Motherboard, CPU, PSU and one RAM stick. Use a screwdriver to jump the power pins.

 

Try the RAM stick in every slot, just to be thorough. Since you did update BIOS to the latest version, if you can't get it to boot then I suggest you return the CPU, since we have isolated the issue to it once we run these tests.

 

Hope this helps!
