ok, i'm not sure but i think it may be my front side bus speed, it's currently running at 404 MHz and the CPU requires 533. However, my motherboard spec says that i have 533 on all the documentation etc...
Is there anyway to change this ?! :tazz:

Hmmmmm, sorry, the specs I read for the board did not list any celeron support, guess I was wrong.

The cpu could be bad but make sure it is installed correctly and no bent pins.
Also make sure the fan connection on the heatsink is installed to the correct header on the mobo.

Thats all I can think of at the moment maybe someone with more knowledge of your board and intel in general will respond.
