I am trying to upgrade the CPU in my HP 6005 Pro to a AMD Phenom II x6 1045T, and am getting a blank screen (no POST or anything, just fans and power lights turning on). Can you tell me if this processor should work? I know it's not in the official compatability list in the manual, but I figured that was simply outdated. I have the latest BIOS installed.
It is a socket AM3 processor running at 95W, and AMD lists it as compatible with my chipset, so I figured it should work.

In general, a processor typically does not work if it isn't in the supported list. Business units work differently than consumer PCs due to having very different BIOS on the motherboard.
