So I decided to build a new computer using some of my existing components. I got a new case and motherboard that I thought was compatible with my old processor, but now I'm not so sure. I connected everything, turn it on, and get no image. Fans and LED's are on, and according to the LED's it says the processor is not installed properly (it is) or it's damaged. I'm thinking I may just have an incompatibility issue and my motherboard doesn't support my processor....Here's what I'm working with

AMD Phenom 9500
MSI K9N2 SLI Platinum motherboard
2x Corsair DDR2 2GB RAM
Antec 650w power supply
Etc, Etc...

Everything is hooked up properly. There's no grounding issue, I don't think, because everything is getting power. I really can't figure this out...any suggestions?

MSI lists the 9500 as compatible with that board since BIOS 3.1 which appears to be the earliest BIOS.

Athlon 64 X2 4800 @ 3000mhz, Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro, Biostar 520 A2, 2x1gb G.Skill DDR2 800, EVGA 8800 GT, Corsair VX450, Cooler Master Centurion 534,

Phenom II 720 @ 3700mhz, Zigmatek Dark Knight S1283V, EVGA 730a, 2x2gb G.Skill PI-Black DDR2 1066, EVGA GTX 260, Corsair VX550, CM 690 Case

the cpu's is probably damaged from shipping and that K9N2 is a high-end mobo and should have no problem with an 9500
