Question about ASUS P5LD2 Motherboard
This is new mother board EliteGroup G31T-M with Intel Dual Core (2D E8500 3.16G). AMI BIOS is marked as 686 AMI BIOS D126-1013. It get on the screen with Intel info and memory info (4G Patriot DDR2 SRAM 240 pin 800 ).
So far I connected : 300W Power Supply, Video on mother board, 4 G Memory (it reads also 2G connection), internal speaker, external speaker, Logitech PS2 keyboad, PS2 mopuse optical,
I tried also function of PCI-E with ATI Radeon HD3650 1G DDR2 . It was recognized and switched OK.
CMOS reset did not changed a bit.
I waited about 5 minutes to 'settle'. No progrss.
Many people bought the combo at Fry's. It won't enter setup. You need to flash the BIOS to see the newer Intel Processors. ECS has the upgrade on their website. The PROBLEM is that you need an older intel socket 775 processor that works with this board to flash the bios so the new processor will work

What I would like you to do is take off any additional cards that you have on the board (If any) All I want you to have hooked to the board is 1 stick of ram, the processor, keyboard, mouse, monitor, and power supply.If you have attached any of the USB connectors for your case disconnect them. (Do you have a processor fan or heatsink attached to the processor? If you do not make sure that you have one attached and that it is working.) Turn on the computer and enter the bios setup if you can get there and load the default settings. Save and exit the bios.
After doing these steps please tell me what it says on the screen when it freezes. Please be patient once it gets to the point where it normally freezes give it a minute to see if it goes anywhere.
Please be aware that these boards ar notorious for being DOA (Dead On Arrival) I personally have had 3 Elitegroup boards that were DOA when I got them (They came free with my processors when I boutght them new from Frys Electronics)
Let me know the result and what you see on the screen and I can assist in further troubleshooting.
