q8300 core 2 quad problems

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I know I'm behind the pace but this is what I just bought. Nothing would show at first so I flashed my bios, and it started up. I was all "Omg yes!" until it just shut off. That's all it does now. It shuts off in about 30 seconds regardless of what I am doing. It did it in the boot menu, and it did it while windows loaded, which, windows did. Reverting back to my older processor allows me on. I am on a E6400 2.13 ghz duo, and what i am trying to make work is a 2.50 ghz quad. Any ideas/solutions?

Your motherboard isn't supposed to be compatible with 45nm quads, but to my knowledge it works on the newest bios revision although I expect overclocking to be difficult if not broken. What bios revision are you using?
