You probably need to update the BIOS for that old motherboard to fully recognize the new CPU. What motherboard do you have and what BIOS version?

bios is a good option. also you board may not support fully the 965...

What board is it and then we can make a conclusion to your problem

download cpu id - google it and let us know what board it is if there is a revision that would help too.

A690GM2MA or a a6vmx-k seems could be the board

- jeez its like saying ive got a red car and i need a part for it -

this is not a 965 compatible board..

looks like you going to need a newer board --

we really need to know what model your board is to be sure...

all because the chip fits doesnt mean its going to work correctly
