ASUS P5KPL-AM SE LGA 775 Intel G31 Intel Motherboard
ASUS P5KPL-AM SE LGA 775 Intel G31 Intel Motherboard. Our office just bought this motherboard in order to replace another one which isn't working properly.
The CPU is a Dual Core Pentium D 945. The salesperson insisted that is should work. However, when I inserted the Pentium D on the new motherboard, it wouldn't get past POST. It says on the specs of the new board that it's compatible with Core 2 CPUs. It doesn't mention anything about support for the older dual cores on the box, the manual nor on Asus' website.
Are the P5KPL and the Pentium D electronically incompatible, or was the board we were given problematic?
