I recently replaced the mother board and everything hooks up fine but when powered I get the message system halted. alert incompatible processor issue. Any Ideas or thoughts on the matter. now this is a replacement and not an upgrade.

With out any specifics I would guess that the replacement motherboard has an old bios that does not recognize your CPU.

Can you get into the bios? If so you might be able to update the bios from there.

I have actually found the newer version of the bios but I am unable to move past this alert. I have tried to boot by disk and update from my flash but no luck yet.

you may have to swap out your cpu with an older one to do the flash.

About 4 years ago i got a nforce 650i board. I tried to put a wolfdale core2duo 3.0 in it, and all i would get is a blinking cursor. The only way i was able to fix it was to borrow an old p4 cpu, pop it in then it started normally, I was able to flash the bios, then put my core2 back in.

the mobo and cpu are irrelevant. it was a replacement mobo just an earlier one. I was looking for exactly what was provided by the first response. But thank you for your Irrelevant rant.

Some times the mobo vendors take the time to document what CPUs work on what bios revision. So it might be a good idea to look if there are release notes for the bios updates for your board to see if there is any notation about if they added new cpu support.

It might also be a good idea to google moboname cpu compatibility. The answer might have already been posted about somewhere.

some mb have a usb flashback..asus does..you dont need to post the mb just put the flash file on a usb stick and hit the usb flash back button. on some mb if you put the flash file on a usb stick or cd and hit some keys you can force flash the mb.
