Am2+/am3 problem

I bought this motherboard a while back http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135085R it is am2+/am3 and i am trying to put in this http://www.jr.com/amd/pe/AMD_HDX840WFGMB/ CPU and it simply will not fire up. the proc is am3 so it SHOULD work and it is a 95W so why is it not working. in addition trying to put back in the OLD proc doesn't work either.

  1. If neither CPU is working either the board is bad or you are doing something wrong, presuming they are both supported http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=873&CategoryID=1&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=20&LanID=9
  2. All cables plugged in correctly?
