I have a MSI P35 Platinum Motherboard and i just installed an Intel E7400 cpu in it. It will not post. I read some reviews on Newegg that a lot of people are having problems with the msi p35 not working with the E7400. Is this a common problem or did i just get a bad cpu?
Not 100% sure it is version 1.9, but i updated it about 1 month ago, so it should be. Im guessing i just got a bad CPU. Thanks for the help, I'll update this thread and let everyone know if my new CPU works after I RMA this one. Thanks for pointing me to that cpu-upgrade site Honorary Poster, great resource there!
Ok, I found the problem. Before I RMA'd my CPU I tried one last thing. I had 4 gigs of ram installed and decided to pull 2 sticks just to see what would happen. With only 2 gigs of ram it posted with no problems. Not sure why this was the case, but thought I'd let everyone know. Thanks for all the help!
