I have recently purchased a Dell G5 and Im trying to upgrade the Intel Core i3-10105F to a Intel i5-11500.  After installing the i5 the system will not boot and has orange orange white flasing power light.  I then reinstall the i3 and the system boots up fine.  Any advice that can be provided would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

Does the dell bios support the i5-11500?  Only dell can answer that question.   It is more than just socket compatibility.  Your machine must also be bios and chipset compatible.
