Question about Acer Veriton 5600G PC Desktop

Acer Veriton 5600G Front Side Bus settings/jumpers

Hi, how does one set and check the FSB speed? I can't find any motherboard diagram indicating jumpers nor settings nor BIOS setup (in Acer manuals) for this.

I understand P4 can go to 800Mhz and Celeron to 400MHz.
CPU-Z version 1.34.1. says I have the following:
CPU(s) Number of CPUs 1 Name Intel Celeron Code Name Northwood Specification Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.60GHz Family / Model / Stepping F 2 9 Extended Family / Model 0 0 Brand ID 10 Package mPGA-478 Core Stepping D1 Technology 0.13 um Supported Instructions Sets MMX, SSE, SSE2 CPU Clock Speed 2593.6 MHz Clock multiplier x 26.0 Front Side Bus Frequency 99.8 MHz Bus Speed 399.0 MHz L1 Data Cache 8 KBytes, 4-way set associative, 64 Bytes line size L1 Trace Cache 12 Kuops, 8-way set associative L2 Cache 128 KBytes, 2-way set associative, 64 Bytes line size L2 Speed 2593.6 MHz (Full) L2 Location On Chip L2 Data Prefetch Logic yes L2 Bus Width 256 bits Mainboard and chipset Motherboard manufacturer Acer Motherboard model J88M, (null) BIOS vendor Phoenix Technologies, LTD BIOS revision 6.00 PG BIOS release date 04/06/2004 Chipset Intel i865P/PE/G/i848P rev.

Maybe it's already running at 400Mhz but why is
Front Side Bus Frequency 99.8 MHz
Any help appreciated!

Regards, Gerry.

    Thanks - is a definite must read!

    A short answer would be fine but glad for that info. - I have a reasonable knowledge but was looking for some reassurance I guess. I'm assuming now it's running at 400 (100x4) but in the past I was used to m/board jumpers - this seems newer (no such jumpers - only BIOS).

    cheers kleeper, Gerry.

Remove the battery and power source. Remove the RAM and hdd. Power up with the power supply and it should do something. If it does, replace the RAM and hdd it should now restart. If nothing, check the GPU.

How do i turn off the HDD

What happens when entering the sleep mode is the drives will be turned off and the present state will be kept in memory until awakened. While the system is active the power scheme will prevent the drives from idling down after so many minutes with the never turn off setting applied.

With the turn off drives after the default 20minutes of inactivity that doesn't mean all drives turn off at the exact same time. I've never come across any reference for changing the power plan option for individual drives. But I can point you at the guide for the power plan settings with one instruction on drive settings to apply prior to entering the sleep mode.

hope that helps if not let someone here know.

How to remove a bios password from hp 6720s

Why can't people put a problem in the right catagory?
Generally, you can remove the Bios backup battery or use the jumper on the motherboard to reset the bios completely.
Google "reset bios" to get an idea of how to do it, or do the same in Youtube for a video. Lots of them are out there.

Removing bluetooth chip

Without knowing what the desktop computer motherboard is, I\'d only be guessing as to location of Wi-Fi chipset.
However even if I knew the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number; the point is Moot.

A) You remove that Wi-Fi chip, and kiss the motherboard goodbye.
It\'s designed into the circuitry of the motherboard.

Isn\'t going to be jumper wires taking it\'s place, and making connections to circuit traces on the motherboard.

B) Do you have a wireless router?
Do you have a wireless connection set up?

You can use just a LAN connection. (Hard wired)

C) Suggest if having a Bluetooth option on your motherboard is not an option then use a different motherboard that doesn\'t have that option.
