I have this d845grg motherboard that supports a cpu up to P4 2.8 533/512  but I put in a 3.0 800/512. This was before I clued into motherboard processor support. I also had a video card with agp 8x when it only supported a 4.
The 3.0 worked but then I moved it into a different motherboard that supported 533/800.
I then put in a 1.8a 400/512 into the d845grg motherboard (which it supports according to the Intel site) but it won't boot. I've got the right memory, right video card, and a 300 watt psu. It powers up but the screen stays blank.
Did I mess up the motherboard when I used the P4 3.0?
I'm going to test it in a motherboard that supports so I can see if it's fried.
Any thoughts or suggestions, anyone?
