I have a P5B-E. I originally had an E6300 in it, which ran perfectly. I recently ordered an E8400. I installed it, but it did not POST. I tried running only one stick of RAM in the first slot. Nothing happened. I tried taking out the CMOS battery for about 20 second, nothing happened.
I am running the current BIOS, 1803. My RAM is Kingston DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) RAM. Model KVR667D2N5K2.
Any help?? Thanks in advance...
Hey guys. Thanks for your responses.
The CPU is compatible, and I updated the BIOS.
I found out that it was the new RAM which I was installing at the same time as the CPU. It was doing something funky (what it was doing, I don't know). This is weird because I the RAM I bought was the same EXACT model number that I already had in my system.
