    okay, my current specs:

    intel celeron 1.7 ghz
    Biostar u8668 grand mobo link to product page

    i bought an intel celeron D 335 and installed it in my machine, but now it wont boot at all..wtf is going on? the mobo is rated to handle up to 2.8 ghz in the celeron family so why the hell isnt it working? please check the page above and tell me if the proc is compatible with my current motherboard..or maybe the cpu was DOD? i dont know..but i was just about ready to kick the shit out of this machine this afternoon...please help me out :)

    Not specifically.. should be on Biostar's website usually in their downloads or support section

    that celeron is probably a Willamette core.... And bottom line is those motherboards will not work with the prescott core, which is what the Celeron D is built off of.

    new mobo time.

    you are wise my freind, i contacted Biostar and yer exactly right. the U8668 Grand cant handle prescott cores, so i went out and got an ASUS P4V8X-MX, works great :greddy:
