I placed my Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 in a socket 754 when it's a socket 775 processor.... very stupid, believe I know.. but $!@# happens. I later purchased an Intel DG31PR Motherboard (socket 775, funny how that works) but the system will not boot up. It beeps like 6 or 7 times, nothing displays on the screen. Did I fry the chip? Could it be something else? Let me know if you need more info.? ** Did I mention I'm new at this, It's the 2nd PC I've attempted to build. My wife is looking at me like I'm Tim "the toolman" Taylor, so the quicker I get responses the better...Thanks in advance.
