you sure you installed the cpu properly ???
if it`s installed properly try reseting cmos...
maybe that could do the trick...

"I have a Board G33M02"

Are you asking about a Dell PC? If so, it would help to know that.

"instal CPU Intel duo core 2 E-6420 bat not boot the computer"

Did you check to make sure that CPU is officially supported? You *may* have to update the BIOS to get it recognized.

"only work the fan in higth speed"

It's possible that the heatsink/fan wasn't installed correctly on the new CPU, the CPU is overheating & the board is automatically run the fan on high speed.

When I search the Foxconn website with G33m022 I get no results.

When I search the Foxconn website with G33M, I get two pages of results.
Most of the mentions of cpus not working are for G33M moards that are in Dell computers, at least one guy says the model printed on the Dell system's board is G33M02, not G33M, and one guy says the appearence of the board that's in his Dell is different than for the G33M on the Foxconn web site.

If this mboard is in a Dell computer, it's probably an OEM only mboard made by Foxconn for Dell, there is probably no direct support for it on the Foxconn web site, and there's no guarantee that the Dell bios version supports recognizing the cpu you want to use, although, it appears it might.

It is NOT a good idea to flash the mboard with it's Dell bios version with a Foxconn bios update, because the mboard from the Dell may have a different I/O chip, and because of that or for some other reason, the flash may FAIL, then you have a dead mboard that cannot boot.

Foxconn's own retail models do support it.

G33M supports it if the bios version is 1.0A or later

G33M-S supports it if the bios version is 1.0A or later

Since the minimum bios version stated is very low, in theory the Dell OEM mboard version probably supports the cpu too.

However, what ram do you have installed?

The E-6420 requires the 1066mhz fsb speed to run at it's full rated overall speed .
If you don't have all 1066 ram installed, or if you do but the bios Setup has the ram speed set to 800mhz, which is sometimes the case by default when you install all 1066mhz ram, the computer may not boot with the E-6420 installed

If you DO have all 1066mhz ram installed, was it working with your previous cpu? Not all 1066mhz ram will work in your mboard, or sometimes it will work but only works at 1066mhz after you change the default ram speed the bios sets it to from 800mhz to 1066mhz, or sometimesit worksfine at 800mhz in your mboard but not at 1066mhz, or you may have to change default bios ram timing and/or ram voltage settings in order for it to work at 1066mhz.
You may need to re-install the previous cpu, change the ram speed to 1066mhz from 800mhz in the bios Setup (all your ram has to be 1066mhz to support that setting; the original CPU may have to support 1066mhz ram as well), then install the E-6420 cpu.

If you DID install all 1066mhz ram, and if this mboard IS in a Dell computer, did you look up which 1066mhz ram definately works in your Dell model?
See response 5 in this for some info about ram compatibilty, and some places where you can find out what will work in your mboard for sure:
Correction to that:

NOTE that if the ram you have installed is not compatible with the mboard, or in the case of some recent mboards, not compatible with the memory controller built into the cpu, in the worst cases of incompatibility, your mboard WILL NOT BOOT when that ram is installed, for that reason alone!

It is easy to test for incompatible ram that has caused your mboard to fail to boot.

Make sure you have a speaker or speakers or the equivalent connected to the mboard so you can hear mboard beeps (see your mboard manual or owners's manual if you need to).
Remove the AC power to the case/power supply.
Remove all the ram.
Restore AC power.
Try to boot.
If nothing else is wrong, you will get no video but you will hear a pattern of beeps that indicate no ram is installed, or a ram problem.
E.g. for an Award bios or a bios based on one, that's often a beep of about a half second, silence for a half second, a beep of about a half second, silence for a half second, continuously.
