I wanted to speed up my computer, so I put in a new cpu. My mobo only goes to 333mhz, and I had put in a athlon 3000, 400mhz. It never booted, it only turns on the fans, nothing else. It's an asrock k7vm3.Any help out there? :thumbsup:

well maybe im wrong but i have never heard of a mobo becoming toast because they put in the wrong cpu. .

although acording to this list http://www.asrock.com.tw/support/CPU_Suppo...asp?Model=K7VM3 your mobo does not support the type of processor you have.
but i would double check to make sure you have everything installed correctly and update your drivers.
