I'm trying to finish a 2 year long build (I got married). Got the board, ram, gpu, and Q8400. I have installed the q8400 and I get lights and fans.....all else is still dark. I borrowed a C2D from my shop and........"wait for it", I got the thing to post. I have flashed to the P31 BIOS. After reinstalling the q8400....still all dark. Can this be because of a compatibility issue? :storm:

Hush, or I'll come over there and terrorize you with presents for the kids (tin drums, electric key boards, and little play pianos)!!!!!!

It was one of those I couldn't "see the forest for the trees". But we got it straightened out.
