Hello!

Specs:
- Old cpu AMD Sempron 3800+
- New cpu AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200B
- Motherboard: MSI K9VGM-V
- Operating system: windows 7 32bit
- Ram 3gb DDR2

So i installed a new cpu for my computer and steps ive allready taken are:
- Bios update
- CMOS clear

I get to boot the computer just fine after a CMOS clear and can go to windows and operate smoothly without any problems. Clock speeds etc. look just normal for 5200+ when viewing from CPU-Z. The problem however starts when i try to restart my pc. After restarting the computer wont go to post and screen stays black. I can only hear those long error beeps from my pc speaker. When i clear CMOS again it starts just fine without any problems.
So basically i cant go to bios to change any of the standart settings and i have to clear CMOS before every boot.

EDIT: when i go to bios it shows the new cpu properly and default settings are correct. When i try to restart the problem appears again.

Help appreciated! Thank you in advance. :)

If it is an endless loop of the same beep, you have a memory problem.

Ensure the memory is seated properly. If that doesn't work, test each memory stick by itself in both memory slots until your system will POST. If your system refuses to post, you may need to replace the memory.

You were correct. I managed to solve this problem by removing one of my ram's. I didn't knew that you should put 2 differend rams on the same computer since im not really a hardware expert :) I wonder why it worked just fine with the sempron prosessor. Might be it's slower speed.
So thank you and this one is now solved!
