I got my new mobo today. Installed my E8400, powered up, after 5 seconds the system would shut down and reboot in a continuous loop. Beep codes are telling me that the CPU is damaged or not properly installed. Remembering the incident with my Q6600, I reseated the HSF with the same results.
Could be the BIOS? I installed a Pentium D 805 and nothing new.
I am so pissed off right now
Hopefully there is a simple solution to this. Any help is appreciated.
