Hey guys i recently just installed a new Core 2 Quad 8400, into my GA-965P-DS3 Motherboard, after i installed it i plugged everything back in and turned it on, it turned off after about 2 seconds then turned itself back on and booted normally, only i couldnt see anything. My first thought was ive ruined my new HD5770, but i put an old 8600GT in it and still cant see anything. Any ideas ?

I am afraid but it seems your board doesnot support 45nm quads. www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=2456 update bios asap.
Do you mean my board doesnt natively support the 45nm quad and it will if i update the bios ?, also i dont have a floppy drive, am i still able to update the bios without one ? thanks alot
As the support list states, it's unofficial support, so it's a bit of a risk. You should be able to update the BIOS using a USB drive.
