no post after 2nd CPU installed

Hewlett-packard / Kayak xm600

Specs: Windows XP, P3
Okay got an odd one for you guys.

I have an HP Kayak motherboard and it functions just fine with 1 CPU installed and a terminator in the second CPU slot.

I have a few 1ghz P3 cpu's and I installed a second one in the motherboard and it will not post with it installed.

I have tried swapping the CPU's around and it will only boot with one of them installed with a terminator card in the other slot, add a second CPU and no boot.

Anyone else own a Kayam 600, and have had this issue? thanks.

The two CPUs have to be identical, right down to the revision and stepping levels.
