processor problem?

Just replaced an i3 with an i5 I bought used. When I tried to boot my system up fan spun for a second then slowed to a stop, spun for a second then slowed again, no boot up. I've taken the i5 out and replaced with i3 and all is working again. I presume the i5 is faulty but I was wondering if I have to do anything different for the i5 to work before sending back to seller

Download the newest BIOS Version there and install it. Then the board will recognize the i5.

Will test and see what happens.

Did you check if your motherboard' bios is compatible with the i5?

You may need a bios update.

What motherboard do you have and i5?

I've got the most recent bios update (M-4)

H81m-E35 V2

I5 4460

Yep the 4460 specifies it needs M-1 bios to work in that motherboard. So there is a chance the i5 is dead.

Yes if your i3 was Haswell , and the i5 is haswell refresh , then the bios may not support. Flash a new bios with the i3 in , and then put the i5 in. This would probably work.

Intel provides no warranty or support for second-hand processors, like your used i5. You should try returning it wherever you purchased it. Good luck without the help of Intel.
