    Hay there, I recently obtained a new system for a very cheap price with a surprisingly good processer with it.

    New computer: -

    Stone
    Intel DQ45EK mobo
    Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 2.9GHz Socket 775
    3GB ram (max 4gb)

    Current Computer: -

    Gigabyte P31-D3SL mobo
    Intel Pentium D 925 3.00 GHz Socket 775
    4GB ram

    Alright so the issue is I want to swap the processors around but when I put the Pentium D into the Intel DQ45EK mobo it comes up with a blank screen with the fan blowing intensely, reboots and then just hangs with the intense fan speed. When I swap back the processors the orignal Core 2 Duo does this same thing but then it goes back to normal after a few reboots. The E7500 works fine in my old system though... I would think the pentium D would be widely supported x-x

    Any ideas cause im lost at the moment.

    Could be that the FSB is not rated for the board.

    Hmmm..the prospects look bleak then. Nevertheless i'll see if a bios update will work.

    On a side note I thought incompatible hardware would cause the system to bleep repetively like when theres no ram installed.
