Hi, list the rest of your setup please.
Have you checked to see if your board needs a bios update to run the E7500?
Also when you power up do all the fans etc spin up but just no display?

Just try re-setting it 1st.
Find the jumper near the bios battery and switch it for a minute or so, switch it back and fire it up.

So you did the bios reset, how long did you leave the jumper switched for.

Update your bios if needed with the old cpu in, try again, if it doesn't fire up reset the bios and also remove the bios battery and leave it for 20 mins before re-trying.

I left it off for about a minute as you said, turned it on left it for about another minute, switched it again for 30 secs ish.. put back in left for 30 secs then powered up.

Ok will do, is there a mega easy way to update bios or can it only be done with floppy? Wud be better if it can go onto a flash drive intstead,

Should be an easier way than floppy, check on the download page for your mobo, I cant access it at the minute.

Not quite sure what you are doing there with the reset, do this.

Unplug
Press power button a few times
Install cpu
Switch bios jumper and remove bios battery
Leave for 20 mins
Put bios bat back in and switch jumper back
Fire up machine

Yeah well my motherboard dont seem to have that jumper, atleast i cant see it so i just take battery out and i did take smethin else out aswell but not sure if that was jumper or not, Looked on google where the jumpers are mainly positioned and checked on my motherboard but there was nothin, so not quite sure like But wont do anythin now till mornin for me too many drinks to start messin about, ive checked the website for my motherboard but seems best and easiest way for me to do it is to floppy disk it,

Thnx for the help much apreciated will give a update on it in the mornin when ive sobered up :p

HaHa, it won't work without the jumper, I'll see what I can find, HNY. [:bohleyk:1]

Download your board manual - http://www.foxconnsupport.com/download.aspx?models=en-u... Manual

On the main pic of the board next to the blue ide slot is a blue jumper called clear cmos.
Thats the jumper you need to switch after you install the new cpu, try without the battery 1st.
There are 3 pins just switch it to the empty pin for 20 secs then back again.

You could do a dos boot cd and just save the files to a normal usb.

Well heres a link to a picture

You said it was a 500w but that model and link is the 400w.

If it is the 400w version thats the 1st thing you need to sort out, its not good quality and not enough power.

Create your bootable usb drive - http://www.bay-wolf.com/usbmemstick.htm

You must create your bootable dos usb 1st.

Then put the files from the Foxconn website onto the usb and follow update instructions 1 by 1.

^Don't need that link.

You have to run the bootdisk file from your desktop to create the bootable usb drive.

Then put the Foxconn files on the bootable usb drive.

So how'd you get it to work, you are sure its updated ok, check it in bios and cpu-z.

Don't overlook the possibility you have a dud cpu, any way you can try it in another machine?

Thing is the E7500 is a 65w and your old D925 needs more juice as its a 95w so don't think its psu.
So you updated the bios and booted into windows fine with the old cpu.
Then changed cpu's and reset the bios before firing up again?

If its not on the supported list its not a good start, you could email Foxconn for confirmation.

Did you buy it new, can't you return, pick up a e6600, they clock well and might be a bit cheaper.

Be sure to get the C2D E6600 and not the Pentium E6600.
