Or if someone has a miraculous magic that will make this IPM41-D3 work with the e5450 xd
What I already did
Mess with all bios configurations
Reinstalled the OS
After configuring bios i can boot up to windows but weird things like avast modules not getting activated and web pages crashing randomly, corrupted downloads and for last the BSOD's with all sort of error's :q
and sorry for my bad english...
it seems like your mobo supports X5355 Xeon, it's a 120w TDP, so you should be fine. Are you sure the bios mod is correct?? where did you get it? That would be the main problem. Also your mobo only supports up to 4gb of DDR3, so you have to stick to sticks of 2gb DDR3 memory, so max viable for you is 2x2gb ddr3 ram. Also, it's possible that you are running a ddr3 speed that the mobo does not support, so reduce the FSB strap and go all the way down (of ram speed) as possible.
It can be also a problem of voltage. Did you set in auto? try 1,3v to be sure that your cpu has more than enough voltage to power up. Just to eliminate "power" issues.
