What motherboard is it? Is the rest of your spec the one in your signature?

"lcd poster screen comes up with testcomos"

Can you be more specific the detail message, please?
Is that the LCD is configuring itself for the display resolution?

Cheers!
Bill

You need to update your Bios, the Q9650 is a newer CPU so the motherboard does not recognize it at the moment, update your bios and all will be fine.
