Please Help... Brand New P4 CPU... does not work


Beta member
Ok. well, There are 2 systems that I'm trying to upgrade.
1. P4 3.0GHz 800MHz FSB - Intel 875 Chipset
2. P4 2.4GHz 533MHz FSB - Intel 865PERL

now, I got a 3.2GHz 1MB Cache CPU, DID NOT WORK on any of the systems. Got it out, got the same CPU as the PC#1 (3.0GHz 1MB Cache), DOES NOT work on any of the systems, even on the system that had the 3.0GHz cpu before. now, if I exchange the 2 systems' current CPUs, they both work fine. but any new CPU does Not work.

What do you think the problem is?
Did the processors come with the fan needed? Because if it doesn't have the right cooling theres a chance it wont work, check the ram too, may have slipped out.
Good Luck :)
