I took the processor out of my old Dell Dimension 8300, thinking about upgrading it with a new CPU and hard drive. I should have checked the prices first, I know.
So I put the old one back in and now it won't do anything, just a plank screen,
does anyone know if Dell's are different some how.
The CPU mounts in a strange way, the cooler holds the CPU in, seems kinda hokey to me but I'm sure I have it in right.
Anyone out there ever fool around with Dell's before?
Are they somehow offended if one removes the CPU and need some kind of apology before they will work again?
P. S. telling me I should have left it alone would not be helpful :)
