Default Misleading info for my mobo.

I got this mobo that is a 648FX-A by ECS 478 pin and it should be rocking my comp since i have a old mobo. but for some reason my pc wont run with it.

I have:

P4 2.5 Ghz 478pin
ati 9200pro
2 sticks of ram 512 and 256 both kingston


In the book under Features For the Processor section it says

*Accomadates Pentium 4 processors up to 3.06G and above


Now *** doesnt that mean 0 up to 3.06 and above. so basically all? Why the **** would they do that if they meant 3.06 and above only?

Can anyone help me out here?

Cause they lie to bring in more money. Its a common practice.

besides, It doesn't look like your CPU is close to it anyways.

478 is also outdated. But thats a differen't story.

Ya where thats where i get shafted. See I bought this from a 3rd party and the 3rd party advertise it and gave that as evidense. so theres nothing I can do. I was hoping that maybe i could just jimmy it or something.

Well, Crap happens. Id save up though, socket 478 is pretty old. Its always good to save up, for upgrades anyways.
