Ive got this motherboard: http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/motherbo.../Imperial-GLVE/
And I'm trying to put this processor in it: http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL67Y

Now when I put the processor in the computer turns on but I get nothing to the monitor and no beeps. I tried updating the BIOS to the newest one I could find but that didn't help. Should this processor work with this mobo? The only thing I can come up with is that the fsb on the mobo is 400 and the bus speed on the processor is 533. I don't know if that is a problem or not though. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

hm..would have predicted that the cpu would run at a slower speed then advertised?

might thou...i guess one logical way of looking at it is you cant fit 1.3 litres of water into a 1litre bottle?

Is the processor listed as compatible with the motherboard.. I tried to search and couldn't find a manual on the motherboard. Some boards are picky which processors they will run.

I remember reading something that said it was but now I cant figure out where that was. Here are the original product specs if that helps at all. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documen...514&lang=en

When installing the processor did you apply new thermal paste?

okay, so this page: http://developer.intel.com/products/chipsets/845gl/index.htm only says that the chipset supports 400 mhz bus, doesnt say anything about 533. I assume this means it just wont work?

Are you sure its even the processors fault? Try using different ram , or try one ram stick at a time. Make sure your video card is seated right, has power in it, and the card isn't bad. Is your power supply good? Is the board being grounded out by metal. Make sure the board isn't touching anything metal, and you have the copper standoffs screwed in between the case and motherboard.

Also, if it is the processors fault, its probably the fsb issue. You'd think it would under clock itself, but since it's a bit older it might not.

When I was building a computer, I used a 3.0ghz pentium 4, 800fsb, socket 775. The board had 1066/1333fsb, but I thought it would work out since the board said it supported pentium 4's, and I don't think they ever made pentium 4's with more then 800mhz.

well, everything seems to work fine when i use the old 1.8 celeron processor. I guess i left out that i've switched back and forth a couple times whilst i was trying to troubleshoot it.

Bus speed of the processor only has to do with how fast data moves from the processor to the motherboard. The bus speed of the motherboard is how fast data moves around the motherboard (in greatly simplified terms). MB bus speed will not affect CPU speed in any way. I'd be more inclined to think that the CPU is fried.
