everything fires up fine, but no beeps and doesnt go to bios or it might, just not showing up on screen. Any suggestions would be a great help. Ive tried one stick at a time, and fireing it up with the min. hooked up. thank you.
It's most likely a BIOS issue. The P965 chipset does not officially support the 45nm CPU's like your E8400. There are some beta BIOS's availabe, but you would have to get a 65nm CPU in order to flash the BIOS. That motherboard is a pretty old model. There have been two chipsets since then.
