SG-80 Processor Compatability

  1. I have an ABIT SG-80 Motherboard and am currently using a Celron D CPU. Bought it as a bundle from Tiger. Recently purchased a Duel Core Pentium LGA755 E2200 (2.2 GHz), 800 MHz FSB. I get no video & no beeping when the E2200 is installed. Tried resetting the CMOS, unhooked everything except the display & conducted a bench test. No luck. Had to put the Celron back in. Any ideas?

    You have already answered your own question. This Abit board is discontinued and the Intel Core 2 Duo is not compatible with the motherboard. There are many newer motherboards that are compatible with the Core 2 Duo CPU's... Order one now.

    You should have done some research BEFORE you bought the E2200
