    intel E7500 compatibility problem


      Hello. I bought a new CPU E7500 for my home PC and I'm having a problem that won't let me sleep. After installing the new CPU my Sapphire HD4870 won't send any signal to my monitor, unless I manually turn the PC off by pressing the power off button for a few seconds. Turning the PC on after this action would result in a normal booting. This way i could play for hours and the PC it's been on for 3 days now with no problems. So after any restart or shutdown from software, won't work. I used the HD4870 with my old CPU E4500 and there was no problem. I also tryed the new CPU with the old videocard and it didn't work so the new CPU is the problem for sure.

      Thanks in advance. 

      Btw this is the configuration I'm using: 
      CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 
      Mobo: Intel DP35DP 
      Video: Sapphire HD4870 1gb (standard one) 
      PSU: Gembird 650W 
      Memory: 4Gb (4x1Gb) DDR2 Pc2-6400 (400MHz) Kingmax 
      Monitor: BenQ 2420HD
