UPGRADE GA-P31-DS3L with INTEL Core 2 Quad Q9650

By GerardBedell ·
Hi All,

I am attempting to upgrade the cpu of my GA-P31-DS3L with F10a BIOS
To an INTEL Core 2 Quad Q9650 3.0 GHz 12MB Yorkfield purchased from tekheads this week.

However, the system hangs (freezes) at Windows Bootscreen when cpu is in.

I have tried as many tweaks as i can think of including many different BIOS configurations.

Would you guys have any idea what the issue may be and can you think of any configurations I can try to fix the problem. It's a shame if it won't work because it looks like a real good processor and i really don't want to have to sell it on via EBAY...

Thanx in advance for your advice. Gerard

SOLVED - UPGRADE Core 2 Quad Q9650

by GerardBedell In reply to Almost There!! :)

OK It's Sorted. Thanks for all the help.

In the end it all came down to incompatible ram.

I replaced the 2gigs of 266mhz with 4 gigs of 400mhz.

The whole system runs great now and cuts through big files on CS4 apps like butter...

Thanks go out to everyone who helped with suggestions with my problem solving hitlist.
