I swapped processors between two computers a 1.7 and 2.2 both these processors were apparently compatable with the other motherboards (i checked websites and manuals) however, the motherboard i put the 2.2 processor in will not boot up. It will switch on but it will not power up the monitor and i have to switch it off at the mains. I swapped them back and both the processors seem fine does anybody know whats wrong or how to fix this.
i know both the processors are p4 celeron. The motherboard that wont accept the 2.2 which actually turns out to be a 2.6 (sorry bout that) is a gigabyte p4 titan series GA-8SG800 the one i took it out of is a ASRock intel p4
