Please can you supply details of your Motherboard, Version of windows, and the actual error message you get.

If you dont know your board make/model, try click here and download/run Belarc advisor.

I may not be able to help, but armed with the addition info someone else probably can.

The closest mobo i cam find is a 7VKML.

Regardless of that, what version of windows, and what is the error message? please.

Without knowing what the error actually is, no-one stands a chance of suggesting a fix.

A change of processor should not require a re-format and re-install, but it probably would solve the problem.
