Default Processor Upgrade Problem (1.7 to 2.8)

I have a P4S5A mobo which supports up to 2.8ghz processor speed. Right now, it has a 1.7 in there. When I put the new processor in (making sure that no pins were bent, offset was in the right corner, etc), my computer never booted. The fan turned on, but it never beeped like it always does..and nothing ever loaded. The manual noted stuff about CMOS and erasing them if the CMOS had invalid info. I thought that it might still think we had a 1.7 in there, so we cleared the CMOS. Still nothing..I put the 1.7 back in and used default CMOS settings..and..here I am. Anyone know what I need to do in order to get my 2.8 to work?

Thanks, Jeremy

What is the FSB of your new processor and your old one?

Your mobo only supports up to 400mhz FSB. So i hope you arent putting anything faster then that in there.
