          Do you know if your motherboard BIOS supports the q8400?

          if so, did you upgrade the BIOS prior to installing the q8400?


          An upgrade processor must be socket, BIOS, and chipset compatible.


          Check with your motherboard manufacturer to see if the q8400 is supported on their bios.
