Computer not posting
I recently got an intel core 2 quad Q9550 and i am upgrading from a core 2 duo e6300 i am on a Gigabyte GA-965P-S3 i am not able to boot with the new processor. Each time it will turn on then turn off and back on then will stay on. All the time the old processor was able to boot with the exception of one time that it got stuck however i just restarted and it booted fine. The New processor was able to half boot once however it never got into windows. Is my CPU simply D.O.A?
the CPU fan is plugged in
i have bios version F14
the CPU IS compatible with the board according to Gigabytes website
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
