Default CPU upgrade gone wrong...can anyone help?!

Hi there, I'm having a problem, I am trying to upgrade my old Intel Celeron 2.0 processor for a new Intel Prescott 3.0 CPU. My mobo is an ECS Elitegroup PM800-M2. After I put the Prescott in, the power light stays on red, with the Celeron it goes to green right away and powers on normally.

Here are the specs for that motherboard, can anyone see if it's compatible, it looks like it is to me.

Thanks a lot guys.

Just from reading the only thing i can think of is a faulty CPU or incompatible socket type, i'll look into a bit more in a few minutes though.
