Couple of years ago my HP Compaq 6715b with dual-core 1.8 GHz AMD Turion X2 64 stopped working. After powerup boot did not start - only blank screen. LEDs and fan worked, but that's it.
CPU was changed to Turion single-core, 1.8GHz since then everything is perfect. Now I've purchased new Turion X2 64 2.0 GHz and... same problem. Switching CPU to Sempron - works, Turion - no.
Any ideas, what can cause such behavior of laptop?
Many thanks in advance for any thoughts and ideas.

The most important thing is to check for voltage compatibility in the mobo for Turions. I don't know if your Semprons are exactly the same voltage of Turions. A BIOS update should take care of that, but you better double check....just in case.
