AM2+ is it will work with AM3 and AM3+ Chips not FX though

No, The CPU is AM3, The Socket on the mobo is AM2+. It should work because the Sempron in the PC has an AM3 socket.

Could the 95 watts be just a little too much for the mobo?

Ok here is the deal ,Your Board can run this CPU fine what i think the problem is and we all missed it was

You might need a BIOS update before using that CPU that could very well be the issue a simple bios update and it should get going

Um........ I cant find any updates. Pegatron stoped making mother boards a while ago. Maybe I can check HPs website. They originally made my PC.

Pins were not in the socket all of the way. I fixed that and it is running like a dream!
