CPU doesn't work properly

I bought a second hand CPU model Intel E7400 CORE 2 DUO 2.8 GHZ and after putting it in the socket and screwing everything in place I started the PC but the monitor wouldn't start up. I tried different things but the problem seems to be the CPU. My mother board is Asus P5PL2. Any ideas why the problem occurs ?

Hmmm. A p5 should run a 7xxx cpu. Try resetting the cmos (bios).
It is Possible' you need a bios update to run a 7 series, but unlikely.

Best solution

No, my mistake. Looks like that board was too early for 4 6 and 7 series chips.

The board chipset stops at 800 front side bus and the 7's are 1066.
You cannot run it.
