    Perhaps the new processor is not supported by the motherboard. Maybe a BIOS update might help but you'd have to install a working CPU first. What are your PC specifications?

    The Dual Core E2180 is not supported according to my reading of the motherboard specifications.

    go to the ASUS web site, just google it then search for the motherboard name, they have a search. u can find all the specs. for that motherboard there, or look in u're owner manual and it will give the site.
