I hate to ask questions about old products. But here goes. I have a desktop with old asus p5lp socket 775 motherboard with a stock intel pent d 2.8 ghz and i tried to update processor to a intel core 2 quad q9650 3.0ghz lga 775. My computer would turn on but wouldnt boot at all. Im confused. Please advise. my current bios is running phoenix award bios v6.00PG. Do i need to flash, update bios?

Socket is not all that matters. The chipset and BIOS must support the new CPU as well. First result from a google search of your motherboard model turns up this.

' Socket type: 775

Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:

Core 2 Duo E6x00

Core 2 Duo E4x00

Pentium D 9x0 Dual Core

Pentium D 8xx Dual Core

Pentium 4 6x1 series

Celeron D 3xx series '

So as you can see it only accepts first generation 65nm Conroe based Core2 chips. No quads at all.
