I have an hp m7560n (specs here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...roduct=3189597). Last night I upgraded the power supply to a corsair 650W and an AMD Athlon64 5600+ Brisbane core cpu. I plugged everything in and the cpu fan roared to life but no output came via the motherboard's VGA port. I tried to just push the power button to turn it off (like I normally can when it's just booted into the BIOS) but it didn't work and I had to hold it down for a few seconds. I replaced the new processor with the old one and got the exact same results, except with evenly spaced long beeps from the BIOS. I then removed the old processor again but it was stuck hard to the heat sink and I severely bent a couple of pins getting it out. I put in the new cpu again just to see if it would work and it did not. I then replaced the new power supply with the stock one and got the exact same results. I thought perhaps the BIOS was incompatible with the new processor (the old one was a Athlon64 4200+) but hp support said this was not the case.

What could I be doing wrong in my upgrade?

Ok... I have everything critical plugged in if that's what you're saying. 24 pin and 12 V near the processor, as well as system fan and cpu fan.

Did you read the specs for that motherboard? Look at supported CPUs?

I did. HP told me that the CPU I bought would load without a BIOS update. In this they were incorrect. I have a friend who is very good with his hands, and he managed to unbend the pins on the stock CPU enough to put them in the socket. We fired it up and got the computer to boot, at which point we flashed the BIOS and installed the new Brisbane chip. It works fine now. Therefore, the 5600+ CPU is compatible with the motherboard.
