Motherboard/Processor update

Q: Motherboard/Processor update

Do you have to update or change the Motherboard to update the processor?

I have a Pentium 4 processor 548, 3.33GHz, 1MB L2 cache, 533MHz front side bus. Can one "Plug and Play" so to speak with an updated processor to the same Motherboard?

Preferred Solution: Motherboard/Processor update

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Motherboard/Processor update

Your CPU socket is PPGA478, P4 is the highest CPU this socket will support.

Even with LGA775 CPU socket, unless you had a motherboard that would support quad core, there would be little reason to upgrade over a complete system replacement.

In answer to your question to "Plug and Play", yes and no. Yes CPU's are basically plug and play, and No the motherboard must support the CPU first.

I updated the bios on my Gateway E-3200 from the Gateway website.

Now when I try to reboot my system this message appears.

Intel(R) Pentium(R) III processor 550 MHz detected.

WARNING: This motherboard is not compatible with this processor's higher frequency. This system has been halted.
Either upgrade the motherboard or install an Intel(R) Pentium(R) III processor 450 MHz.

Before the bios update the computer was running with the same motherboard and processor.

MOTHERBOARD: Gateway Maverick 440BX NLX form factor
Serial Number: A
PROCESSOR: Intel(R) Pentium(R) III processor 550 MHz

BIOS USED: 4J4NBOX1.86A.0043.P20

I tried using the old bios, won't work, called Gateway, gave me

I'd deeply appreciate it!!
 

A:After bios update--Motherboard is not compatible with processor

This is the reason why I no longer buy brand name "proprietary" PCs anymore. Too many problems with simple upgrades.

You should be able to flash back to the old bios unless gateway PCs don't allow that. You probably flashed to an incorrect bios.

I have been to the Sony site in order to update the Multimedia Video Controller. But each time I go to MPEG for the drivers as stated on a previous thread here, the setup tells me that the driver was not meant for my machine, a Sony Vaio desktop computer.

That being said, I did take this computer from my mom's house and put a new motherboard and processor in it. I'm also using a Windows XP 32-bit OS that I highjacked off of another computer I had awhile back. LOL I also have my room mate's random fancy video card in there too (until her boyfriend finishes building her fancy new desktop). Do you think this is making the issue more complicated than it should be???

A:PCI driver won't update for Sony Vaio with new motherboard and processor

What motherboard are you now using? Go to the motherboard manufacturer's website for the chipset, LAN and onboard sound drivers. If the motherboard came out of a Dell, HP, Acer, etc., then go their respective websites for the drivers. For your graphics driver go to the GPU maker's site.

I have an old motherboard with 478 chipset, intel Celeron D320 2,4GHz and FSB: 533. My motherboard (2003 year) supports FSB 400/533/800 but now it rus at 533 with celeron.
1. Can I overclock my system to max FSB 800MHz if the rest of the system supports it?
My processor runs at 2620MHz and PC3200 RAM runs at effective 366MHz. Original system bus is 133MHz.
2. Can i buy socket 478 pentium processor wich FSB is 800MHz?
3. Wich of these is better:
P4 2,8GHz, FSB 800MHz, system bus 200MHz
P4 3,0GHz, FSB 533MHz, system bus 133MHz (Or something near that)
4. If processor is 3GHz and FSB 533 will memory bus still be 166MHz? My curren celeron is 2,4GHz with FSB 533MHz and memory bus is at 166MHz.
Sorry for bad english and probably posting to the wrong place.
 

A:P4 processor and motherboard

Socket 478 CPUs are hard to find these days. You'd probably be better off just upgrading the system to a cheap Core 2 on socket 775. That would probably triple the performance.

My computer is unable to start when I press on the power button. When I press on the power button, everything doesn't run except for the processor fan and the power supply fan which only run for 1 second then it stops. It seems like there is no power connected to the system.

Even I have tried a new power supply, it does the same thing. When I look at the motherboard, a green light is on. This is confusing me because if there is no power connection, the green light on the motherboard can't be on. But if there is connection, then why system doesn't run.

I am suspecting either the processor or the motherboad has gone. But I am not sure at all. Your helps is highly appreciate. Thanks you so much.

Hi, a quick question if I may.
I'm thinking of up grading my motherboard and processor, currently running a Gigabyte G33M-S2 and intel core2 E6750 @ 2.66GHz. 4GB ram Vista home premium SP2.
3 years old now but with the new crop of games recently out and coming soon requiring quad core processors it seems like a upgrade to i5/i7 processor and surrounding bits would be a good move.
Question is can I install my currant OS "Vista" have the disc and key? or with it being OEM will I have to splash out the extra ?100ish for a new OS..

Thanks Ian..

A:New motherboard and processor

The answer...you really won't know until you try it.Technically...MS considers a change of motherboard alone as a change of systems. That would make the textbook answer depend on the type of license you have for Vista.If the license came with a system assembled by one of the OEMs...or is a MS System Builder/OEM license...technically, MS has the right to tell you that such license is not transferable.If it's a retail license where you bought/installed Vista on the system...you could move it with no problem.In reality...you won't know until you try. I know for a fact that many XP users in similar situations...have made the changes mentioned (and more) and had no problem with PA after the changes.Vista is a tad more recent than XP...and the rules being applied may be a bit different...hence my answer.Louis

Recently ive been having trouble with my processor overheating. Today i left it running when i went to work and when i got back the computer had shut down. I have it seet so that if the cpu temp is 70c its shuts down.
When i switched it back on, nothing happened. No sounds, no beeps and nothing on the screen. I checked the little LED diagnostic thing on the mobo and it said that there was a problem with the processor, so i reseated it and still nothing happened. I then tried my old p4, but still nothing happened, so i put the old p4 into the old mobo and now that wont boot.

What has happened? Have the processors died, the motherbord died or both.

I would be greatful for any help as im pulling my hair out over this.

I have a compaq presario, CQ56 115DX Notebook, by HP.
Problem started last week and resurfaced again this monday.
could not get my notebook out sleep mode, the caps lock was blinking once, indicating a cpu problem.
took it in to a tech, who changed the cpu. System was running until 2 days, ago, when again, could not get it out of
sleep. Press the power button, turns the laptop off completely, press again, back to sleep, with caps lock blinking once, indicating cpu issues. Took it back to tech, who now thinks it could be the motherboard.
If that was the case, then HP diagnostics would have the caps lock blinking 5 times, right?


HELP, THANKS

A:Motherboard or processor, which is it??

Hello GLENDAGIRL. Welcome to the forum.

Not necessarily. If the problem were in the motherboard's CPU socket that could be mistaken for a CPU error.

CPUs are hardy components. It's hard to kill them and they don't usually go bad. The fact that the CPU was switched and the problem persists would pretty much eliminate it as a suspect.

Have you or the tech checked and reseated the RAM? It is generally a good idea to check everything for loose connections.

ok, my computer is old, and has a 486 processor. I want to upgrade it. But, the upgrade thingy says that I probably will have to change around some jumpers, and whatnot. I don't have my manual, so I need to know what motherboard I have so's I can get help. How do I find out.

And also, is it possible to fit a pentium processor into the socket that now holds the 486? I mean, could I just buy a new processor and jam that it there, or would I need a whole new motherboard?
 

A:motherboard/processor

To find your motherboard is a pain but this place will tell you how.
Home page. http://www.ping.be/bios/

Here is the page that tells you how. http://www.ping.be/bios/numbers.shtml

As far as upgrading goes The Pentium processors will use a different voltage and socket. You may be able get a faster 486mhz chip for that board. I would not recommend spending much money on it though as it might be time to build or buy a new one.

My brother was in this same position. Things he bought Evergreen Turbo chip. $100.00
64 megs of EDO ram $50.00 New CD player $45.00

It is easy to get caught up in the upgrade path as you hate to see a older computer not being used. But then it is easy to spend too much money trying to get a old system to run marginally better.

A:Can I Get A New Processor For A MotherBoard??

No, the fastest Socket 7 CPU ever made was the K6-2 550Mhz if I'm not mistaken. You could upgrade to that but it would not be worth it.

There is no point to upgrading a bios if it is working ok, the only reason to do so is to fix a problem or to support new hardware or O/S.

Unfortunately, upgrading your system to say a new AMD or P4 would require a lot more than just a Motherboard and CPU. You would also need a new case, powersupply, and Ram and maybe even a new video and sound card if the old ones are intergrated as they usually are with Compaqs. Also you may need a new modem if the old one is ISA because most new mobo's do not have ISA any more.

A:Motherboard or Processor

Corrupted files usually point to a corrupted\failing HDD.

However, there's one thing that wasn't clear from your post: Did you replace the motherboard and then do a clean install of XP or was it the other way around? If you did it before replacing the motherboard, then you'll have to do it again, because while Windows can handle hardware changes like new RAM, a new video card and even a new CPU, a new motherboard is too much for it to handle and the Hardware Abstraction Layer becomes messed up, usually ending in BSODs or other problems.

difference between the two is , in digital entitlement, microsoft activation information is saved in your BIOS, and i case you change your motherboard you will lose your activation.
> product key, motherboard change wont effect it and should work fine.
so yours being linked to computer setup ( i consider it being Digital entitlement) you can connect your digital license with your Microsoft account because after the hardware upgrade you will lose your license , . here are the picture of what you see when you have successfully linked your account :

there is another way where you can contact Microsoft support and you will receive the activation, as it was mentioned by Gabe Aul.

What should I do before I install a new motherboard and processor to an existing Windows Vista Business x64 OS?

I know I should probably uninstall all the drivers, but where do I find these?

A:New motherboard/processor

I did this not too long ago. All you need to do is get rid of the drivers that correspond with hardware that you wont have anymore. For example, a new motherboard usually means a new onboard sound, so uninstall your sound drivers. They can probably be located in the Control Panel -> Programs window. If not there, go into the Hardware Manager and uninstall/disable whatever you need to. Anything thats motherboard specific should go, although there isnt all that much. There is no software that corresponds to processors. Once all that is done, you can swap the hardware and install the new drivers that came with the new motherboard.

Hope that helped

Motherboard on this system I bought everything from the shop today case motherboard h drive i mean everything MSI motherboard gb H Drive AMD dual core processor problem is - it loads up correctly I can use Vista for about Motherboard or Processor? mins it crashes like loads of mini pics of the last screen it happens most when i go to use the internet I have wiped the pc again and it doesnt crash I have used my memory that is the same as the new stuff and it works with both sets of memory I have changed all the leads gone back to basics and it still does it I have even changed the thermal compound on the processor and it still crashes the temp before it crashes it Degrees so i am thinking its the processor or the motherboard Please can someone advise me how to test these or can anyone tell me the problem Thanks Rick nbsp

A:Motherboard or Processor?

Try installing a linux distro from a free download and test with linux to see if its just a windows driver issue ,or infact a hardware issue,as for Vista bin it and try Win7.

Just did a new system build...
It keeps freezing during the windows xp home install right past where you select the partition.
I thought it might be bad RAM, so I tried a stick from my neighbor's pc and had the same problem, tried a different video card, still no luck, even tried different IDE cable... you guessd it no luck.
I figure it must be the board or the chip, I just don't know what to replace... Any ideas?

Thanks,

I recently bought a ecs motherboard X58-A2 and installed a Intel i7- 920 processor with 6GB of Crucial DDR3 PC-8500 ram. Installed windows 7 and it booted up fine, but it apears to be extremely slow, my dell duo core far surpasses this thing. Now I have been trying to update the BIOS and when I restart to install the update, it takes a good 15-20 minutes to install windows, and then it goes to a black screen with the mouse curser as the only thing on the screen. What is going on..... is this a bad processor, memory, HHD, or MOBO.Can some one please help.
 

A:ECS x58-a2 motherboard with i7-920 processor

First of all double check that everything is installed correctly, e.g. the heatsink in on properly, RAM modules are pressed in firmly, all the cables are plugged in and have a browse through the motherboard's manual because tbh I've never really heard of ECS.

You could also try booting with another hard drive if you have one, if that's from your old computer then maybe it's dying.

Out of interest did you fresh install a copy of Windows 7 and how did you go about updating the BIOS?

Hi,
I would like to buy a faster processor but motherboard only supports a 1066 FSB. Intel's compatibly page only seems to list discontinued processor models. The E7500 seems to be fastest processor currently available with a 1066 FSB. How does it compare with older Q6700?
Please let me know if there are any other compatible processors I should consider.

Core Duo E6600 (2.4)
DP965LT motherboard
5GB RAM
ATI 5770

Thanks
 

A:New processor for a DP965LT motherboard

I think 65nm technology is as far as you can go with the 965 chipset, but I'm not certain.

This I do know, the E7500 is 45nm, and essentially a brand new release. Only boards bought within the last 6 months are likely compatible with it without a BIOS update.

http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.aspx?Boardname=dp965lt I saw the same compatibility page for your board that you did, and it looks like you're out of luck. The newest CPUs that will work are the E21XX Pentium Dual Cores, and they're not as good as what you have.

Other board manufacturers may have offered BIOS updates for CPU compatibility with this chipset beyond that of Intel, but that's sort of a moot point.

It's just a thought, but those Conroe C2Ds are notoriously good for overclocking, You might reverse your thinking and replace the board, not the CPU. I'm pretty sure that most P45 chipset boards are backwards compatible with your CPU. If your were to buy a Gigabyte or other non Intel board, the BIOS wouldn't be locked, and you could overclock the E6600.

Then, even if you blew it up, you could always run a 45nm CPU in the later board.

I'm the voice of absolutely no experience, but I think that 3.0 GHz should be easily doable with your processor. (Or so I've heard)

This is the CPU support list for a Gigabyte GA-EP45C-UD3R ; http://www.gigabyte.us/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=2954&ver=#anchor_os You CPU is listed. This board is a very popular model. Other Gigabyte P45 boards should support the same CPUs. The P45 is essentially the successor to the P965 chipset, hence the reason why I'm suggesting it, Your DDR2 would plug right in. Newegg has this in stock; http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...4 1070509908 107172615&name=Intel P43/P45/P55, for 90 bucks. (Some P45 boards take DDR3, you gotta watch).

I'll be replacing a faulty desktop MOBO (Intel D945PVS) with an Intel DG965WH , upgrading processor (Pentium D) with Core 2 Duo but keeping all other components intact including installed full retail version of Vista Home Premium on HDD #1 (C:\) and data on HDD's #2 & #3. Can anyone tell me what to expect upon initial bootup ? Will Vista recognize the HDDs & automatically boot off the boot drive or do I have to boot up using the Vista software ? Should I keep HDD 2&3 disconnected initially ? Has anyone had any experience with this before ?
 

A:Motherboard/Processor replacement

Experience with this? Lots of it.

Chances the installed OS will boot off another board are very, very, very unlikely. And even if it does, you'll have sporadic run problems until you do a clean install of the OS on the new board.

Exceptions to this rule: Exact replacement board.

First off let me say that a question of this kind can easily be solved by visiting Gigabytes website, they like most major mobo manufacturers have great online support. Here is the CPU Support list for your mobo: http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/M...ProductID=2817

The answer is No, your mobo does not support that CPU, it will take the Phenom II X4 945 3.0GHz with BIOS revision 3.1.

Do you need a fan? Im unfamiliar with the AMD Phenoms and their stock fan, but I never stick with the stocker, as I'm an overclocker!

Hey... Im also a poet and didnt know it! LOL!

Hello

As the title says, I wanna change my motherboard processor, and insert an SSD aswell while keeping the old harddrive.

Was wondering if I need to perfom a new reinstall on windows or if I can just transfer windows itself to the SSD and then just keep going. I was also wondering if my windows install will messup if I insert my new motherboard due to new BIOS.

Thanks
 

A:Changing motherboard and processor

Its always a good idea to fresh install when changing motherboards. A fresh install will minimize any issues that could arise from different hardware configurations. I've also heard that Windows setup detects an SSD and optimizes Windows for use with the SSD.

You should also keep in mind, an OEM license for Windows is not be transferable to a new motherboard. The motherboard is the one component that constitutes a new machine. OEM installs are bound to the motherboard they are activated on.

Hi me again. i did something similar to this but thats not why im here. CAN A SOCKET 775 PROCESSOR work on a SOCKET 478 MOBO.

I cant find no answers to this question on google.

i need a dual core processor like this Celeron E3200 Dual-Core 2.4GHz. BUT its 775. WILL IT WORK ON MY 478 cheers. OR is there any 478 dual cores out there?

A:LGA775 processor on a 478 MOtherboard

Simple answer... NO. Even if the number of contacts on the processors were the same (they aren't), it wouldn't work because the pins are on the processor for the skt 478 m/b whereas for the 775 processor the pins are in the socket.

A:Motherboard and Processor question

That board and CPU you are looking at would be a major downgrade from what you currently have.

As far as the 1600 MHz RAM not working, just run it 1333 MHz as that is the max your CPU supports.

Probably a dumb question ...

I've got a 3-year-old computer that still runs well, even if it is extremely slow by today's standards. It has an Intel Seattle II SE440BX-2 motherboard with a 333 MHz processor. I was originally told that this motherboard would accept PII processors up to 450 MHz, and recently a friend mentioned that he had a couple of different 450 CPUs (SL358 and SL2U7). When I was checking the specs to see if one was better than the other, I noticed that both 450 processors have a "100 Mhz" spec (bus speed?) but my current 333 processor has a "66 Mhz" spec. The motherboard specs show a clock speed of 67 MHz in the bus properties. Am I correct in concluding that neither of the 450 processors would work in my motherboard?

I require assistance with motherboard/processor compatibility. I have been to both websites (Intel for processor, Gigabyte for Mobo) and I can't really understand how to work the compatibility test. I was wondering if I could get some advice here.

At the moment, I'm using:
Mobo: Gigabyte G41M-ES2H
Chipset: Intel G41

Processor: Intel Pentium Dual Core E2160 @ 1.80Ghz
Socket: 775 LGA

And I'm looking to replace that old processor with a new:
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual Core E6600 @ 3.06 Ghz
Socket: 775 LGA

I have spoken to a tech support specialist from Harvey Norman, and he has said that as long as the socket type is the same, it will be supported. I was wanting to get some feedback from another tech specialist, as I like to check things twice before I do them.

I thought that since my motherboard was slower that the processor would simply slow down to the speed of the motherboard. But i guess that i am wrong. My Computer is now running a 333, and on the bois it is set to 266 still. The computer will not run slower than 333 (thankfully). I have tryed seting the bios to "user define" and I but the multiplier factor to 6.5 (ps i have tryed other factors as well).

As of now my computer is a Systemax 1.4 AMD Athlon, 60 gig, gf4ti4600, sb audigy2 and 768 ram. I can feel my computer's age, although for the most part the hardware that I installed is fairly new.(All of which was installed by me) Point being that I want to upgrade my motherboard and processor, but I am not sure on how to go about doing that. Any tips and suggestions on what I need and should do will be appreciated. I want to do this mainly for games, as I feel that my processor just isnt cutting it anymore, and I dont exactly have the money for an alienware pc . Thanks for the help.
 

A:Motherboard/Processor upgrade help

Well at the least you are looking at a new CPU. Chances are you will need a new motherboard as well, but maybe not. Other things you may need to upgrade is the RAM and powersupply - but again maybe not.

Can you post you motherboard model, RAM type and speed(ie PC2100), and powersupply make and wattage. Also post any Systemax model number. You can find all this using Everest: http://www.lavalys.com/products/download.php?pid=1&lang=en&pageid=3 - just note that you may want to look at the RAM visually to see if whats being reported is the correct info - you could have faster RAM running at a slower speed.

Also note that in most cases you will need to format and reinstall Windows when upgrading the motherboard due to the change of the motherboard chipset - its also just a good idea to do.

I'm looking to install an AMD Athlon 3000XP with an ABIT KV7. I have absolutely no idea about what this will do to my system, but I know how to physically repalce the hardware. The question is, will I lose windows XP? My comp came with ME and I upgraded to XP so I only have the upgrade CD. Also, should I just replace the motherboard first, and then the processor, or both at the same time?

The real reason I am performing this upgrade is that I need a faster processor, and I heard that you need a new motherboard to repalce a processor.

Basically I am just looking for advice on what to do, Im sure you guys will be able to accomodate me!

Hello all

First post here - looks like a very interesting forum.

I've recently upgraded (at home) to an ASUS P5P800 motherboard along with a P4 3.0Ghz processor. Managed to fit it all together OK. I have noticed, though that the processor fan does become very noisy after the PC has been on for a few hours. It actually sounded as though the washing machine had moved into the study! I've checked that the fan is properly fixed etc and all seems to be OK. I appreciate that as the processor heats up the fan will increase in speed to compensate, but I don't think it should be that loud!

Any thoughts would be gratefully appreciated.

Regards
 

A:Motherboard Processor Fan is very loud.

what brand of fan do you have? some fans are just louder than others. try searching about how much dB's (decibels) your fan gives and if it is more than 30 it's loud. i hope this helps you.

A:Want to replace my motherboard, processor, and ram need help.

you have another post stating that you want to get another socket-754 processor for you existing motherboard.

now this post states that you want to get a new mobo too?

honestly I would not suggest getting another processor for a socket-754 system because it will still be bottlenecked by the slower hypertransport bus and single channel ram.

if you still want to use your AGP card and still have the ability to uprade to PCI-E in the future, consider this mobo I used it myself until a month ago and it worked great. and it has gotten very good reviews. it also lets you upgrade to AM2 when it eventually is worth it to do so (i.e. K8L)

Hi,

Does anyone know what the maximum supported processor I can get for the Chaintech 7VJL Apogee motherboard is?

If not does anyone know where I can find out?

It doesn't tell me on the Chaintech website or in the user manual, and none of the BIOS updates give a clue as to what new processors may be supported if you apply them.

I read one review which in the specs said the max processor was an XP 2000+, but I also saw on a forum someone was using an XP 2800+.

Where could I find out what the max supported processor is because the Chaintech website is useless!

A:Processor-motherboard-chipset

The "Best to buy" is so subjective. In all the reviews I've read, the i850 chipset based systems are still the performance leaders. They are also the most expensive.

In terms of performance, SiS645 chipset is the next best. The problem is it's new and I'm having trouble finding any boards that are available right now.

In terms of what MoBo brand to buy ... that's a can 'o worms. My personal favorite is Asus. You're right that Abit makes good boards, too. Most of the bigger board makers have good products, it's really just a matter of finding a board with all of the features that you want.

It would be pretty close to impossible to hack a processor and change any of it's characteristics - like making it display a corporate logo or any other shenanigans.
And I can't imagine the chip manufacturers doing so for them.

I'd say you are safe to assume it is just a processor, not a special HP customized one.

There is no way to tell if a bad mobo or processor is fault without swapping it out.
Have a meter to check PSU? Can you use spare system PSU to check?
If PSU proves good and mem is good along with graphics/internal or external,
then mobo/processor are suspect.
A shop will be able to bench test the mobo and processor.
