To elaborate on the subject name
I have an AMD system. Currently running
Asus x-570f gaming motherboard
And Ryzen 2700x
Gskill 3200mhz 32gb ram
I have tried updating my cpu to the newer 5700x cpu
My bios was up-to-date, and made sure that I could install the 5700x. It would get past the bios screen but it would sit on the win 11 welcome screen with the loading wheel either freezing or continuing to spin.
I returned the first 5700x cpu and ordered a new replacement 5700x thinking it was a faulty cpu.
Same problem, would go past bios and get stuck on the loading screen
None of the pins were bent or broken on either of the new CPU’s
I put back my 2700x and the pc would boot fine
I’d tried reinstalling windows - would not fix the issue
I’d removed the cmos battery would not fix issue
I did everything I thought possible to try and fix the problem, even removing each ram stick one by one but no luck
Ever since, I have given up updating my cpu on the pure fact that I feel it doesn’t matter what I change to, it just won’t work
Does anyone know what the error may be? Is it the motherboard?
And no, I don’t want to update to am5 just yet, as that means replacing cpu, motherboard and ram
