    Welcome natedogg3674 . :)

    It possible you mother board does not support 533 FSB. What is it?
     
  3. i dont think in any situations the computer fails to boot because the bios is not up to date, updating the bios just makes it better and fixes the bugs out

    Fish: if the bios doesnt recognise the CPU ID it wont boot.

    Either you need to upgrade to the latest bios, or you need to tr the cpu in someone elses pc with a newer intel mainboard as you may have a dead chip.
