smackerg Posted September 16, 2008 Share Posted September 16, 2008 I was just googling and came across this thread. I have the exact same problems ... setup is a P5Q-E, Q9550, 4GB kit, 2x500gb raid1 on intel. At first i thought it's the ram, tested with many diff models of ********, corsair ... no luck. Vista 32bit SP1 would hang at different points of installation. I tried every version of the bios from original to the latest. I put a cheap celeron in; everything is ok. I installed vista sp1, drivers, updates ... no problem. I take the cpu out and put the q9550 in and vista won't even boot. Any help is appreciated as i'm going crazy; it's been 2 weeks i've worked on this with no luck. All bios settings are set to default; do i need to increase the voltage for CPU, is the board faulty? if so how come celeron works fine? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
