Re: wont load setup or win
Go to the web page of the manufacturers of your board. Look up the download page, locate the bios download for your board and also the instructions on how to load it. When you get this write it down and follow it STEP BY CAREFUL STEP. This is a critical installation.Mess it up and you could render your MOBO as junk, and no one wants this to happen.If something does go wrong and your board is still available new then you should be able to purchase a new bios chip from the makers web page or one of their reccomended dealers.

According to their website, no. The core 2 duo is supported, but not quad core. http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=674&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0 Look under the cpu tab.
Yes - both MOBO are same form factor.
You will need to remove the backplate (that is the part that surrounds the ports) from the case.
You will need to insert the backplate for the new MOBO in the case.
This sounds like the power supply - before buying a new motherboard can you get voltages from the pin connectors that power the board? You can use a simple multi-meter - set to 12V and register the current.
Sounds like you need to go into the Bios if you know how and adjust the thermal values in there. I suggest checking heatsink on cpu is seated correctly and add a fan to increase airflow in side the case. Seems like a heat problem from what you describe.
personally i have the q6600 which is a quad core processor, all the others you listed were dual core, personally i use alot of programs all at once which is good if you have a quad core, but just for general music, data, and streaming, the e8400 is probably better for you, its a 3ghz processor.
I would replace the battery as the 1st thing, however I would also change your cpu fan for a new one and reseat the processor. Also get some decent cpu paste and make sure this is applied properly, and dont forget to wipe the old stuff off!
Does your case have anywhere were you can place some fans? It sound slike you have two problems to me, the battery being one and the overheating the second
The onboard battery that keeps the CMOS or BIOS settings is bad. It's a large flat battery that looks a lot like a watch battery just larger. Carefully remove it and get a replacement. Numbers for the replacement should be on top of the old battery.
