It could be that it simply doesn't work, yes, but are you sure also that the CPU is compatible with the motherboard from Dell, and also that other system?

I'd advise you double check, and then replace the chip. Nothing else can be done I'm afraid.

well couple of things. CPU's are fragile, which means that a static charge could have blown it from the begining, if you live in a place with low humidity then this is possible, it is important to equipt your self witht eh right tools and knowlage before builing or updating a computer. in your case i would have suggested an anti static wriste band. but see as how there is already CPU difficulties then thats a little late.

you may want to check and see if all the pins are straight on the CPU, if its a significanlty better cpu then also check and see if your heatsink is good enough and that your thermal pads are fine. typicly when installing a CPU and heatsink its one of those things you do once. check your memory and check your bios, good luck and be sure to post if this didnt help (although i hope it did). ooo and finally (it could just be that it doesnt work, it doesnt happend often but it might have).

im quite certain that its the bios because i went from the old core to the new prescott core and its quite an old motherboard so i'll try updating the bios tomorrow, but that means i have to switch the cpus AGAIN, comps can be really annoying sometimes lol

It could be the BIOS I guess, but it ould also be the CPU just not being compatable with that motherboard. Though again, A bios update may be worth a shot.

well the dell is pretty old but the motherboard on the other machine is a asus p4s800 which says it supports prescott cpus so i think a bios update should do it, if not then i need to get another one
