Question about Intel Core 2 Quad Q8400 Computer System Desktop Pc
What size power supply are you running? If you are not running a minimum of 400watt , I would anticipate issues with this type of processor. Since it is freezing right away, it could be bad memory. You can try memtest86.com to download a memory test tool to verify.
Secondly, you may want to reset the board by moving the jumper from normal mode to reset mode.
last thing, it's not impossible for a processor to be bad. Since it is an Intel processor; it should have a 3 year warranty on it. Any dealer who sells Intel should be able to warranty replace it for you.
