iv had some problems with it but i got a new mother board witch atleast turns it on and sends it to the data checking screen but it stops at

"CPU is unworkable or has been changed recheck CPU soft menu" at bottom it has press f1 to continue or del to enter setup but its not responding to my keyboard.

Sounds like the bios settings were lost Below that message it should say:

If it’s not recognizing your Keyboard try using another one.

Press F2 (or del or something) to enter setup press that key In the bios find the area were it says Load bios defaults or optimal configuration (all bios' are different) and press enter Then find the settings for the CPU - could have its own category or may be under advanced - make sure it shows your correct vcpu speed - change it if you have to Exit and save The message should be gone now.

If he above does not work sorry to say deatr sir, but you need a new hard drive! Because you have been hacked.

Good Luck!
