    When I plugged in this new processor (everything else works) the monitor doesn't detect an input and just goes into power saving mode, but with my old processor (Phenom II x6 1100T) everything works like a charm.

    Tried to reset BIOS (I'm pretty sure that's the problem) by taking out the cmos battery and leaving it awhile, but that didn't effect the machine in anyway. On the old BIOS you didnt need a cmos battery in to just run the machine is that still true with UFEI?

    Any ideas?

    Maybe a broken pin? take your FX CPU out look under it.

    Do you have the latest BIOS already installed? It's usually required when upgrading to a newer CPU on older motherboards. You can always re-install the old CPU long enough to re-flash the BIOS, then switch to the new one.

    The FX-6200 requires BIOS version 0902. If you haven't flashed the BIOS it's possible that the board is running an earlier BIOS since the 1100T only needs version 0402. I would pop the PII chip back in and flash that puppy or at least make sure you're running the latest BIOS.
