    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    I`m not sure what you mean by your board won`t pick up the chip.

    The fsb should be set to 200mhz, if your trying to set it any higher than that, you`re overclocking the cpu etc.

    An fsb of 200mhz=800mhz effective.

    look the cpu is 400 front side bus but my board only says 800 front side bus. my question is can my motherboard suppport a 400 front side bus or do i need a new cpu

    and also i mean the board turns on and everything but no pivture comes out and my hardrive wont spin and i know they both work fine.

    I can find next to no info on your mobo.

    Do you have the mobo manual? This should tell you what cpu`s it supports.

    I`ve looked on the Gigabyte site but can`t find anything.

    Normally when a mobo says it supports an fsb of 800mhz which is actually 200mhz, it means it will support cpu`s upto that speed. A cpu with an fsb of 400mhz is actually 100mhz fsb. That of course is for intel cpu`s. AMD`s are slightly different.

    It is possible the cpu is dead, it`s also possible the mobo has a problem. However, it`s very difficult to be sure.

    Can you give us the details of the cpu? Make/Model/Socket etc.

    Regards Howard :)

    I`ve just found the manual for your mobo, you can get it HERE.

    The reason I couldn`t find it before is you`d given us the wrong model number. You gave us GA-iK1100 rev.2. when in fact it`s a GA-8iK1100 rev.2 lol.

    As far as I`m aware, it should support your cpu.

    Regards Howard :)
