yeah, I thought it was weird too. I took my 3500+ out and got an older 3200+ and put it in, and the system booted fine. Tried putting mine back in, and nothing. Everything powers on but nothing hapens. My monitor stays blank.

It's a store bought PC, so I can't do anything to the bios that would harm it, as I'm locked out from the bios. Stupid Compaq
