 Specified microprocessor is faulty, unsupported, improperly installed,
or missing.

You should crack this open and see if they sold you one without the
CPU's installed. Or try re-seating them, sometimes UPS/FedEx gets overly
ape-ish with the packages.

Subject: Error code E0F0C on 2650 from Ebay

Hello All:

I recently purchased a pe2650 from Ebay.

Connected a monitor and powered it up yesterday an got the following
message on the LCD display:

E0F0C VID Match CPU 1 VID Match CPU 2

Also...No video feed on monitor.

Should I assume the system is inop or am I missing something since I am
new to this class of hardware?

I don't have any drives installed yet but I assume I should at least get
into BIOS?

Thanks for the insight...
