It appears to be supported so I can only guess that you didn't install the heatsink correctly.

You also may have failed to Reset Defaults in your BIOS.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Take the processor back out, and check the pins in the socket. Take a flash light and shine it on the socket at an angle, this will reveal any bent pins. The pins are so easy to bend you have to be extremely careful when installing a CPU.

If all the pins are good, put your old processor back in the computer and update your BIOS.

Then try again.

Greta I did not realise that LGA775 had pins, I thought they had contact points ?

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

The pins are in the socket not on the CPU

did you discharge yourself from any static charge? Just the the smallest static charge can ruin a whole motherboard.
