Right basically, I bought a core 2 duo E6300 for my 945-gct m3 ECS motherboard. Ive checked the compatibility list and its in there but yet im getting no display on my monitor, if i take my ram modules out i get beeping so the CPU itself is fine right? .. and when i take the c2d out and put back in my p4 it says CPU settings have been changed, Any help to get my system c2duoed up would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

If your e6300 is the newer .45nm wolfdale, then it probably won't run on your motherboard. The 945 chipset is too old, and ecs doesn't provide as many bios updates as some other brands.

My E6300 is the one with 2mb cache not to sure about the nanometers, but its in the mobo's compatibility list, the mobo supports higher end core 2 duo's :Z

I can only find the 945gct m2 on ecs website, and it doesn't support the e6300. I would email ecs for the answer. I have contacted them before, and they normally respond within 24 hours.

I would still email ecs tech support to be sure if you can't get it to post. There are lots of g31 boards cheap right now that will run it. Frys had an msi for $30 after rebate last week.

Getting a new mobo isnt an option atm though, thanks for your help anyway (:

The other reason to email them is they may send you a newer bios file to get your cpu working.

Im pretty sure its a bios update that i need now, fingers crossed!

So buddy it means that ur motherboard supports your processor.
Buddy have u installed windows before or are u doing it for first time.
Check,Have u fixed ur CPU perfectly?
Check.Are u providing enough power to your system?
Check.Are u providing good cooling to your system?
Tell me your other configurations along with your PSU.
Best of luck.
December 3, 2010 1:40:54 AM

Its a 300w mercury psu, and yeha ive installed windows many times, ive updated the bios form ecs' website and still no luck, also the cooling is stock but ive looked at the temps and everything fine and dandy

Its a weird one, maybe a new motherboard is calling me :Z
December 3, 2010 7:24:22 AM

Hello JedEverton,
Buddy u took it wrong,i meant that as this is your new CPU.So are u installing the windows first time with this new CPU.
Means that your system is not giving display with this new CPU or it was okay before with this new CPU.
Try this,
Buddy take your RAM out and check its base,Sometimes this can be happened when Carbon is stuck to the RAM.If it is then clean it.
Also.yes u need to buy a new motherboard.Ur motherboard is not very good.
Buddy for easiness,check your power requirement from the link given below:

Best Of Luck.
