are you sure that your motherboard is compatible with the processor? what are the specs for your motherboard (make and model) same for the processor (as you didn't really give much info on it that made sense)

I need to know fast because I only have 7 days to return this or im stuck with it. I want to put it in I guess it's the mother board.
What would be a compatiple mother board for the E6400 Core 2 duo?

Run everest then click on the Report menu. Select Report Wizard, then select Hardware Related pages. Create the report as a TXT file (if this option is available). When its finished compiling, save the report & then attach it with your next post.:

on a prelliminary search i've found that Dell does have a newer bios version than the one you currently have ( Here ) that is supposed to add CPU support for newer CPU's and might make the dual core function....but i've also seen references (having trouble finding many) that suggest that the motherboard you have doesn't support the proper voltage...but these sources that i'm finding are actually pointing more at the model number of their computer (Dimension 5150/E510 is this the same as yours?) and not neccessarily your SPECIFIC board http://www.dellcommu...s...p;cs=&s=gen nothing conclusive

It looks as if these are the specs for your system and your mobo only supports through the Pentium D lineup:

You an try the bios upgrade, but I seriously doubt if it added C2D support.
