This is the motherboard im running GA-MA770T-UD3P motherboard and after i put this proccessor in my computer AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX the computer won't turn on, all the fans turn on and everything appears to be running, but the monitor just displays a "no signal error" now as soon as i put my old proccessor back in (AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 245 Processor) it works fine, but for some reason i have to remove some of my ram sticks to get the new proccessor to start the computer again (not sure if thats relevant) but after that i can put the rest of the ram sticks back in, what is causing this?

I'm running a geforce 240 gt, and i have a 700 watt power supply, but someone told me on here its not a very good power supply, could that be the problem perhaps?

Not sure about the 8 pin, i plugged the fan control thing in though that came with the proccessor, and im not familiar with those terms Alex, i don't know to much about computers.

The CPU is supported. Is the CPU fan spinning when starting the board?

It might be a processor issue.
You can try though updating the BIOS (read carefully the manual for how to, cause it might render the board unusable if something goes wrong).
Download the latest BIOS from http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=...
It doesn't matter if Windows is 32 or 64bit.

I suggested reading the manual. It's important. Check the 4.2 Chapter and use Q-Flash.
