Yeah, I don't see it. Try the startup repair. Something between the BIOS Settings/hardware and the startup files for the OS aren't matching up. Just repair the startup, I'm hoping that works.

Is your boot priority in the BIOS set to CD ROM first and hard drive second? Save and Exit, And then usually "press any key to continue" will show up on the screen and just press any key, it will boot to the cd.

What about DVD (Windows 7)??? This is getting bizarre, you should be able to boot to a cd easily since you can sit in the BIOS all night.

That happened to me earlier. I guess I did something write because it asked me to re-write the boot sector or something like that.
Gosh, why aren't computers easier to mess with? :)

:) :) :)

So...I got into Windows...and I am confused to how/why!

In the BIOS I bumped up the CPU Watts by 10?

Anyway :) Ferrari!

Going to ship back the CPU today and I will be back when I receive the new one.

This is one EPIC thread...

Boy, I just can't wait for the new CPU to come in :)

Glad something work. Changing the watts/voltages on the cpu doesn't make sense, but as long as it works I guess. :)

Yeah I googled the second error I received and the person recommended checked the RAM sticks. I knew mine were fine so I figured I would try messing with RAM settings... It worked out!

I shipped the CPU back to newegg today and it should be there by Thursday(glad I live close). Hopefully I have an easier time with the new CPU :) CAN'T WAIT!

With the new cpu...

Just remember to Clear the CMOS
Change your Voltages again (I guess lol)
Be prepared to do a startup repair (maybe)

Wow I really sound like I know what I'm doing :) It's not supposed to be this difficult! I swap cpu's in used systems all the time without even thinking and I never have a problem, maybe more high end newer cpu/motherboards requires some finesse, not really sure.

Which CPU are you going with?
