    Default p965 s3 won't boot with new cpu

    I've just purchased a new cpu for my p965 s3

    This mb will boot with my e6300 cpu with no problems

    It won't boot with q9550 f14 bios

    Won't boot with e6750 f10 bios

    In both cases it powers up and fans stop for a second then stay on. I get no video out. no beeps. no hdd lights no response of any kind.

    Both cpus work on other motherboards.

    I've used both 450w psu and 660w psu

    I run xp sp3
    2gb ram not sure some generic brand
    radeon 3850
    1tb western digital

    yep its rev 3.3

    and I loaded optimized defualts before putting in the new cpus. I of course couldn't do that after putting them in.

    Have you changed any settings manually, or do you use optimized defaults when installing a different CPU? Try clearing CMOS, explained in the second part of this post.
