My computer cannot pass through BIOS and after around 3 sec being turned on, the computer automatically shutdown. I just bought motherboard ECS G31T-M7 ,1 stick of corsair ram 2gb 2048-6400C4 and p4 2.66ghz (my old cpu). Based on that spec, i wonder if Hyper-thread motherboard really need core2duo/pentium d/dual core as its main core since these processor using hyperthreading technology.. and 1 more question. except processor, the ram im using is compatible or not? My computer cannot run through BIOS, and auto shutdown. i don't know what exactly the main issue about my hardware, since all are new except the processor.
