OK so I have a Gigabyte GA-945GCM-S2C LGA 775 mobo and tried to pair it up with a E7500 Core2Duo. According to the mobo's CPU support list (http://www.gigabyte.us/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_M...) the processor is supported after BIOS revision F6a. Does that mean that mobo won't post if I don't have that BIOS revision? And if so, how am I supposed to update the BIOS if I can't get the system to boot? Do I have to install a processor that is supported by the current BIOS, update it, and then install the new processor? Help
Wow this is so weird, I'm having exactly the same problem with this exact same motherboard and processor combination. In my case I just today got a E7500 to upgrade this motherboard from a 1.6 GHz Celeron. After it wouldn't boot up, I searched online, and I saw that it needed the F6A BIOS, so I put the old processor back in, flashed the BIOS, put the E7500 back in, and it's still not working, just a black screen. I'd love to find an answer to this as well, I just googled looking for more answers and came across this post.
