Hi all,
Does anyone know why this cpu won't boot on my Asrock M266A with latest bios?
P4 3.06/512K/533
Part number: RK80532GE083512

What happens? No POST at all? What CPU came out of it? Have you reset BIOS to defaults? Is this CPU known working condition? Suitable power (including any necessary additional power connectors)?

No post at all. It does however boot fine with a slower P4 but it's not my pc so I can't tell you what spec the old cpu are. sorry. Have reset the bios too.

Did you reconnect the cpu fan / 12 atx connection?? Short the pwr / gnd on the mobo header. See if that works

yep tried all that I can only conclude that the cpu voltage on the new cpu is not compatible with mobo.
Sound right?

I'd be pretty surprised, though it is assrock, so regardless of their claimed CPU support it may well be incompatible.
