hi, hope you can help as im feeling quite desperate! i have an emachines 570 (not very good i know) so ive been upgrading, got a new graphics card 3 weeks ago and now bought a cpu

Intel P4 3.0 S478 1MB 800FSB

plus a fan, i checked the pins and thought it would work. i can get it to fit in and it goes in smoothly but when i turn the pc on it comes on as if on standby and i can hear the fan but nothing...... just the orange standby light,

hope you can help me, cheers

The mainboard probably cant handle that CPU. What speed and model CPU are you replacing?

When all else fails, update your BIOS

When this fails, RMA !
