Unlikely, I would think that the best processor you could use would be a 3.0Ghz or maybe a 3.06Ghz. If you look at the motherboard part number you will be able to find out from the manufacturers what the fastest CPU is. A lot depends on the FSB on the mobo and the Bios version. You need a "Socket 478" processor I think you will find that the processors you are looking at are "Socket 775" ( this is the fitting socket for the processor) .

SOURCE: how to install CPU- Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200

This particular CPU is not on the list of processors supported by this board. See "CPU Support List" tab:

ASUS P4-P5N9300 Spec

How to install Socket LGA 775 CPUs:

Lift up the cpu slot load plate (which covers the pins and also locks the cpu in place) and install the processor slowly, vertically and carefully into the socket without bending any of the tiny pins in the motherboard socket. Lock the load plate.

The advent of the LGA 775 form factor moved the tiny pins from the CPU to the motherboard socket. Great for Intel, not so great for motherboard manufacturers. Now bent pins are the responsibility of the board makers. Customers with bent pin problems are no longer contacting Intel.

SOURCE: Upgrade CPU In my SAMBA SM-1845

Hi, as long as both chips are slot 478 it should work fine, you wont need to change any bios or jumpers, just open up the computer, remove the heatsink, lift the lever and remove the CPU.
Insert new processor.
you will need thermal grease at this point, you need to apply a little amount onto the cpu, and make sure the old thermal paste is removed from the heatsink and then refit the heatsink & fan.
other option is fit the new cpu and purchase a new heatsink & fan, they usually come with the thermal grease, a new heatsink will cost about £10 or themal grease by itself will cost about 2-3 pounds.
just make sure you have new thermal paste before you remove the heatsink as the processor will get damaged otherwise..

Hope this helps

John

As I understand it, you tried to upgrade the CPU from 1.86GHz to a 3.00GHz. The error message is stating that the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) cannot recognise the CPU because it is not in the list of supported CPUs. You need to download an updated BIOS (if available) for the particular motherboard in your PC. You will need to get the model number of the motherboard which is usually written on the motherboard. Then go to this web site: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/homeLenovo.do

Search for an updated bios for your motherboard. There should be instructions on how to update the bios.

Just installed xp for a friend on an old ibm netvista 6794 NZU pc. Went to ibm website but can not find the motherboard or chipset drivers to allow this pc to acess the internet. Can anyone help please. ...


It's a big pain when you dont have the right driver. but try this:

1. download and install the Windows Service Pack 3 (XP SP 3) in the computer and check if it works.

and how are you trying to connect to the internet? you might just want to put in an extra PCI network card, if you want to use the broadband or if you need the usb ports to work, try a PCI USB card instead.

either ways, make sure you have installed SP3 in that computer.

cheers!

Celeron D 2.5 ghz to replace P4 1.7 ghz on 478 socket motherboard


Technically you can. You should also compare cache level and FSB between the two processors. You may find that replacing the P4 with the celeron may not be much of a again.

Problems with 3 brand new PC 133 512 MB RAM in Netvista 6794


That last RAM probably is good. Many motherboards have problems using many different memory. All of the memory you have should be at least identical to ensure that they work. When RAM run at different speed or require a little more voltage, they will not let your motherboard boot. You can try mixing up the order you put the RAM in. Try putting the last RAM in the first slot by itself, the motherboard should boot. Then try the rest.

Also, whenever you add or change hardwares, you should clear the CMOS/BIOS settings.

Trying to upgrade cpu.


Here's a direct link to the service manual of the NetVista 8303-21A:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/netvista_pdf/24p2969.pdf

On page 13 of this manual:
Microprocessor (varies by model type): Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with 256 KB or 512 KB of internal L2 cache memory and Intel NetBurst™ micro-architecture.

It seems that the computer's motherboard does not support Intel P4 processors with more than 512 KB of internal L2 cache. That's why your P4 2.8GHz/1M/533 Prescott processor did not work.
You will have to either buy another processor with 512 KB L2 cache, or replace your motherboard with one which supports the new processor.

Bios Problem


if you still can enter bios setup look for the advanced menu in the BIOS for "processor updating" or something like this and set to "disabled". Save the changes.
otherwise your motherboard perhaps is incompartible with cpu
for example cpu 133 and motherboard 100 or 66MHZ
please let me know the result.
