I have a Boot Problem with my INTEL P4 3.0Ghz. 800Mhz FSB,1M L2 Cache, Socket 478 CPU

Dear Sirs: I have a intel socket 478, 3.0Ghz. 800m fsb 1m cache cpu, 512mb super talent ddr 2700 ddr ram, abit is7 socket 478 motherboard, 450w power supply, powmax case, pioneer a-109 dvd/rw drive w/ jumpers correct, lg 52x cdrw/dvd combo drive w/ jumpers correct, sony 1.44m floppy drive, albatron fx5200 256mb agp video card, acr socket 478 heat sink and fan, seagate 40gb ide hardr drive w/ jumpers correct, one 24" round ide hdd cable, one round floppy cable, silver cpu grease, I tried hard to get this system to boot up, tried taking the computer apart, used one by one deletion of hardware { i.e. taking each part out 1 by one and re-booting }, clearing the c-mos, removing the internal clock battery, letting it sit for a 1/2 a day then re-inserting it and re-booting, but I still haven't gotten to post. the computer comes on, with the green system-on led indicator light in the right hand side bottom of motherboard, along with the red led power-on indicator light, the case's power-on led lights up, and so does the green hdd indicator, but again, no post, i can't even get a "beep" indication from the internal speaker, the computer just comes on and sits there with the fans turning, the hard drive spins up, then ceases to spin, floppy light comes on briefly, cdrw light comes on briefly. pioneer dvd light comes on briefly, then nothing.... I get no post, no warning post's ( system speaker "beeps" to count), no nothing, I'm at wits end with this system, can you please tell me what to do, I hope i don't have to change the cpu, or the motherboard as i have just acquired the cpu {new} and the motherboard is kewl too. the abit site's help says: the motherboard accepts intel 3.0 cpu w/ 800m fsb, is my l1 cache too much? (1m) instead of the usual 512? is the motherboard compatible with the cpu? is the bios in need of upgrade even though i can't get to bios screen to do a dos bios flash and update? what? izz.

I have experienced something similar with my new Core2Duo processor and a fairly new Socket 775 processor. Troubleshooting it led me to believe the CPU simply wasn't compatible with the motherboard. Although it's a shot in the dark, I suggest that you try out some of the following: - Did you try pulling out the graphics card to see if you got it to POST then? The graphics card or the monitor may need replacing. - Did you remove the RAM? - Are you sure all cables are attached properly? - Try to take out the CPU, talk to a friend with a socket 478 motherboard and replace his CPU with your CPU. Does it work now? If yes, motherboard needs to be replaced.

What type of dual core processor can I use for my dc7600?


The motherboard for the dc7600 has an Intel LGA775 processor socket. However, not all LGA775 processors are compatible with the motherboard. For the small form factor, the following CPUs are supported: Intel Celeron D Processors:
Intel Celeron D 331 Processor (2.66-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 336 Processor (2.80-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 346 Processor (3.06-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB)
Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology:
Intel Pentium 4 521 Processor (2.8-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 524 Processor (3.06-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 541 Processor (3.2-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 620 Processor (2.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 630 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 631 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 640 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 641 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 650 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 651 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 661 Processor (3.6-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) or
Intel Pentium D Dual Core Processors:
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 915 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 925 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 930 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 945 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

Unfortunately, these are old processors and I don't see any available new. Newegg.com lists a couple available as refurbished. You may be better off getting a new computer with either a Intel I3 or current AMD processor.

I wish that I had better news for you.

(do not attempt to use a CPU that your motherboard doesn't support. It probably won't boot.)

CPU compatability


It is not compatible. If your fsb is 533mhz then any replacement cpu would need to be a 533mhz fsb chip. This is unless your motherboard supports different fsb's. You will need to check your manual or the manufacturers website to see what cpu's your system supports. Hope this helps.

Cant run 3E GHz 800 FSB L2 cache 1MB cpu on a ASUS P4P800s-x


here are the specs.
CPU FSB DDR DIMM Type Memory Frq.
800Mhz PC3200/PC2700/PC2100 400/333/266 Mhz
533Mhz PC2700/PC2100 333/266 Mhz
400Mhz PC2100 266 Mhz

the CPC and the moemories meets these spec. then you shouldn't have problem.
since you didn't spec the meories. I am assuming that the meories are within specs.

but, from what you say about, I suspect the memories is not up to part. looks like the meories are in PC 2100 range.

P4 ugrade required


Sadly you wont find any 1066Mhz FSB processors for the Socket 478. The best you can find is the 3.4Ghz with 800Mhz FSB. It might be cheaper and also better value for you to get a Socket 775 based motherboard and Core2 Duo processor. The value range E2160/2180 processors or the E4300/4400 processors have been tested to be even faster than the Socket 775 Pentium Dual 3.4Ghz and they also use less power.

An article on socket 478 for you http://www.xbitlabs.com/news/cpu/display/20040123103754.html
