Question about PC

HP Recommended
a6400f
Microsoft Windows Vista

I swapped the pentium E2200 processor with a pentium D 925 processor.  The PC was beeping when I turned it on with the 925 processor so I shut it off and put the E2200 processor back in it.  It's no longer beeping however I don't know if it's funtionally normally since I have no video now.  I have a dell E2014 monitor connected to a video card.  Not sure of the video card model.

@BrandonP

 

 

Did you connect the display to the I/O plate at the back of the PC or to a video card? 

 

Your PC, according to the specs was not delivered with a video card.

 

I suggest removing the vidoe card and trying the output at the rear of the motherboard.

 

@BrandonP

That is just putting it back into its base configuration to verify that it still works.

You put a Pressler processor in an incompatible motherboard.  

 

 

You might have damaged your motherboard.

 

The following processors are compatible with your motherboard.

 

  • Intel Core 2 Quad (Y) Q9xxxx
  • Intel Core 2 Duo (W) E8xxx
  • Intel Core 2 Quad (K) up to Q6600
  • Core 2 Duo E6x00 (C) up to E6700
  • Core 2 Duo E4x00 (C) up to E4400

If it had damaged the motherboard, wouldn't it still beep when I turn it on?  It does not beep now that I put the E2200 processor back in it.

It looks like something is wrong with the motherboard.  I put in a new video card but still get no video.  I have another desktop to use with the new video card.  Thank you @erico for your assistance.
