Unable to install XP Home

I just got a PCChips P53G Motherboard with a Pentium dual core processor, when I try to install XP Home I got an error that stops the installation before it can display any options with the next technical information: Stop: 0x000007E (0xC0000005, oxF75AB0BF, OxF79F7208, 0xF79F6F08)

    Same exact senario. I have spent hours with this. got a bare bones kit. installed my old compaq hard drive, which already had XP installed. It got to the widows initializing screen and stops and reboots. Tried to reinstall XP and got the same error messages. Not sure what to do but have just started to research the issue. Will let you know if I come up with anything.

The problem is caused by drivers, rather a lack of drivers. The windows XP disc you are using is not equipped with correct drivers. You have to use XP service pack 3, because it has updated drivers. Service pack 3 has the latest drivers to support SATA and pci and cpu processes that were not in existence in 2001, when XP rolled out in its original form. The bad news is, you'll have to locate a windows XP sp3 disc, buy it, and use it. There could be a less expensive alternative though. If you have your original product key, you may be able to locate a copy of XP with SP3, then simply apply your key whrn prompted. (just do not mismatch the PRO with HOME, or you will be stuck). Good Luck

Yes. Any Intel Pentium 4 processor will fit fine. That said A P4 processor is fast, but the Pentium D is much faster. The D stands for Dual Core. This means that they have two on die processor cores instead of just one, as the Pentium 4 does. Two processors also makes it better for "demanding" applications.

The Pentium D is better if you have a motherboard that will utilize the technology. As stated the Pentium D is Duel core. This is Intel's way of creating the closest environment of a true duel processor. The HT is for Hyper-Threading which acts like a zipper and allows several applications to process at the same time. The Pentium D will really make a difference when used with the new 64 bit operating system.

However, HT (Hyper-threading) P4, does have emulated Dual Core processing. In short, the processor makes the computer think its runing a dual core. The Pentium 4 also has a couple different levels, so if you are trying to make a comparison, make sure that you look carefully.

Although neither can match the power of an Athalon or an AMD x2 processor. If you are buying, get something with 64 bit processing. WAY faster and better for games and high graphic systems.

Growth of the processor


Depends on what the increase is

Single-Core going from say; 1.6GHz to 1.8GHz?


Going from the budget, or starter series of AMD or Intel?
For instance Intel 'Celey' (Celeron) to Pentium 4?
AMD 'Sempy' (Sempron) to XP Athlon ?

A comparable Pentium 4 processor, has TWICE the L2 cache, that a Celeron has.

Cache for a Processor, is a small memory area for the Processor.
It operates at the same frequency rate, ('Speed'), that the Processor does.
Therefore it is the first memory area the Processor accesses.

The more cache you have, the faster the Processor can take care of the tasks.

[Ram Memory typically operates at about half, of the Processor's Front Side Bus. (FSB)
It is the second memory area the Processor accesses.
The Harddrive is the third ]

Moving from a Single-Core processor to a Dual Core, = Yes.
There are Celeron's, and Pentium 4's; that fit an LGA 775 processor socket, and are supported by that motherboard chipset.

This same motherboard chipset may also support dual core Intel processors.

Pentium D's ARE dual core. Celeron D's are Not.

Third paragraph down below the bold black subheading - Prescott-256

"......................The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual core.........................Unlike the Pentium D, the Celeron D is not a dual core processor."

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

To find out what motherboard chipset is on your motherboard, on a working computer, and without opening the computer; use CPU-Z from,

Just click on the Mainboard tab.

Now, what is the motherboard manufacturer, and model number;
What is the computer manufacturer name, and model number?

The model number can be found on the back of a desktop computer, next to the Windows product key; or up on the side of the computer tower.
It is on the Bottom of a laptop.

Can I upgrade to a Intel Pentium D 945 3.40ghz processor. Intel (Augsburg) 915G Motherboard

No, the Intel (Ausberg) 915G motherboard will not support dual core processors.

The Intel (Ausberg) 915G motherboard uses an Intel 915G motherboard chipset,

Supports only Single Core processors.

It isn't until the Intel 945G motherboard chipset, that Dual Core processors are supported.

The Intel Celeron D is a Single Core processor.
The Intel Pentium D is a Dual Core processor,

Intel Celeron D,

"The Intel Celeron D processor works with the Intel 845 and 865 chipset families. The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core. It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers). Unlike the Pentium D, the Celeron D is not a dual core processor."

Intel Pentium D,

Don't 'shoot the messenger'. I just state the facts.

Pc Chips P23G wont reconize my new p4 core 2 duo

The PC Chips P23G versions 1.0A & 3.0 will not support any current generation Core2Duo, Core2Quad or Pentium Dual-Core processors. Only some of the first generation (Conroe Core) Core2Duo processors which run @ 1066mhz bus and some Pentium D (presler core) processors which run @ 800mhz bus.are supported. Not even most current BIOS will add support for any current processors. Check the pcchips website for CPU compatibility for the P23G..
