whatever you do DONT TRY AND FORCE IT. youll bend the pins if your careless, then itll be good for nothing but the bin.

Have you checked to see if it's seated all the way down? There's the edges with the hooks that line up with the hooks on the socket. But I think that P4 is LGA775 too. Peter helped a guy out a few days ago, he had a similar problem. His P4 wasn't working because it wasn't the right motherboard but right socket.

The motherboard and cpu are compatible. are you putting the chip in in the proper direction? there is an arrow to show you the proper direction. The LGA775 chips dont really have pins that can be broken like older chips. I found once they were installed that the "door" was a little harder to close than other chips but it would close.

The door is hard to close. When I first inserted my E6600 it was seated properly, just the door, you had to put a bit of pressure to close it.

him feels really odd with the ammount of pressure I would have to put on it the arrow does match up with the missing pin and the 2 notches also match up

Keep checking until you feel comfortable and knowing that all the pins are in there correct spot.

By any chance can you take a picture of the door being at an "upward angle"?
