Re: Black screen after installing core 2 duo
That might be it.
i have had (and reed about) incompatibility with too fast RAM modules. (used a pc2-6400 kit on a motherboard that at best supported pc2-5300. it didn't post)
When looking at old motherboard specs you should not take the ram module support lightly.
maybe this is also the case with CPU's on older platforms.
glad we have better compatibility in modern hardware.
