    New Processor/Pc won’t start


    by ragingcool ·


    I just got a i5 8400 and i’m adding it to my msi b250m PRO VD motherboard. After I removed my old processor and added my new one, I tried to turn my pc on but it the fans would turn on then off in a second and the pc wouldn’t start. I looked at various solutions: resetting BIOS by either removing battery or with jumpers and neither worked, removing new processor and adding old one then adding it again. I then tried to update BIOS from website with a flash but it couldnt identify a BIOS update file on setup. I then tried to use to flash helper recomended by msi but my pc kept detecting it as a virus and it did not work. Any ideas?

      Your b250 chipset motherboard isn’t compatible with intel 8th gen CPUs. Only 300 series chipset is compatible with 8th gen CPUs
