  1. You can't. You need to get a CPU compatible with the existing bios, and then update the bios.

    Only some motherboards have that ability. I don't think the B350 has that. However, the 1500X should work with out a BIOS update on the B350 Tomahawk. Have your BIOS ready on a USB stick, put your cpu in the mobo, boot up in to BIOS, then update BIOS from your USB stick.

    Your board supports the 1500x. Could be the board is just dead.
