I have a dell inspiron 530, attempting to upgrade from dual core 1.8ghz to a quad core q9550, i read at a couple of places that it DOES support this computer, and i have done this before (on a diffrent computer like a year ago)and yet when i turn it on after installing the new processer, all the fans run and everything seems fine exept the monitor is blank, there is no beeps and the fans seem to be running faster than usually
Specs: Dell Inspiron 530
9800gtx+
4gb ram
550 power supply

I would check with Dell. I seriously doubt that Mobo will support a Q-Core CPU.

Long story short It DIDNT support quad cause there's 2 diffrents kinds of those but now my problem is when I try to put my old proccesser back in it does the same thing and all the fans run but nothing really starts so I might have ###### up the motherboard but I'm planning in the next couple of days to buy a new intel motherboard thatWILL support quad but any suggestions on my old motherboard?
