Please help......I am not sure but I was told that it only has to be your processor that is compatible not the motherboard is that correct ??? I did run that compatibility test thing and my computer passed with flying colours.
couple of quick questions
Are you overclocking?
how much ram? when installing sometimes it is nec to pull all but 1 gig.
In bios there may be several settings. max memory, max cpu, and legacy floppy support. if present they should all be unchecked.
If you purchased the disc, how did you change it?
