Question about Gigabyte GA-8ID533 Motherboard
I have been running a Pentium 4 2.0GHz 400MHz FSB processor on a Gigabyte GA-8ID533 (1.1) board. I wanted to upgrade my processor and went on Gigabyte's website to look at compatible processors. I bought a Pentium 4 Northwood 2.66GHz 533MHz FSB Processor online as the website shows this processor as compatible, and tried to install the processor. When I tried to boot up, i get a blank screen, no beeps, just the fan running. When I replace the original processor, everything runs fine. The stats on the GA-8ID533 show that max FSB is 400MHz, but prcessor compatibility searches online show that there are a numer of 533MHz Bus Pentium 4's and Celerons that will work. Do i need to change the BIOS or CMOS Settings proir to installation? I have already updated the bios to F4.
Well if the board support till 400FSb then the 533FSb CPU will not work with the board did you check the website and he board manual that says it support upto 533 bus?
