Question about AMD Computer Processors

1 Answer

Swapped a AMD Athlon MMX for a AMD Athlon XP2800 but get no joy

I tried to speed things up and got a socket A CPU second hand,
The CPU fits and is heat sinked ok
On start up I get no response exept for 3 flashing lcds on the key board.So I put the old one back! All ok.
I presume the XP2800 is ok and being a novice at this, I expect that I
am doing something wrong.
Any help?

Dear sir, my motherboard is amd athlon 64 socket 939.when i on the system then system is running but processor fan is not rotating.Finally after 25-30 minutes it automatically turned of and displays cpu...


It sounds like the cpu's temperature is raising over the safety level set in the bios so it switches off and displays the error!
to solve this either:

Your cpu cooler fan needs replacing

or

Your current cooler fan isn't connected to the correct socket on your board (check you're user manual, usually a .pdf you can download from manufacturers site)

or

Just try connecting your current cooler fan to the cpu and see if it turns on at all. If not make sure you replace it with one that is compatible with your system that can fit in your case

If the temperature has raised to a significant level the thermal paste could probably use replacing also, so get some thermal paste remover and thermal paste, and read in your motherboard user manual how to replace the cpu heat sink safely.

Can you tell me why when i put CPU in my computer he give error? CPU is AMD Athlon 64 3400+ 2.4GHz socket 754.My motherboard is socket 754 Gigabyte GA-K8NE-RH. Problem is my computer or CPU?I take CPU...


The motherboard will support this CPU, with the F1 bios.
I can only advise, that IF your motherboard was working ok before you put the new CPU in, it must be the new cpu you bought.

If this is the 1st CPU you have tried, there is a chance the board is damaged

Trying to upgrade a Compaq SR1020NX computer. The HP website still has old info, likely based on the original bios. The motherboard is an Asus A8M2N-LA. What CPU upgrades will run on that board? Is there...


The ASUS A8M2N-LA is the motherboard used by HP for the new D4500e AMD AM2 PC.

Here are the details:
Motherboard manufacturer's name: ASUS A8M2N-LA
HP/Compaq name: Nodus-GL8E
CPU/Processor  Socket: AM2 Supports AMD Athlon 64, Athlon 64 X2, and Sempron processors
Front-side bus (FSB)  2000 MegaTransfers/second
Chipset  GeForce 6150 LE chipset
BIOS features  Award brand system BIOS Keyboard combination to used to enter BIOS: F1
Form factor  Micro-ATX: 9.6 in X 9.6 in
Memory  Four 240-pin DDR2 DIMM sockets, Supports PC 4200 (533 MHz) and PC2 5300 (667 MHz) DDR2 DIMMs, non-ECC memory only, unbuffered Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB*
PS - as you can see the rangeis 533 - 667 MHz. I would suggest you call HP support and ask if it will support 800 MHz,

AMD Athlon 64x2 brisbane 2.9 ghz fans too loud now WHAT TO DO!!!


If you have no heating problems,and you used good cooling paste ,for resplace the CPU ,only loud problems, you can leave the original copper core cooling fan.first reset the pc, when you see the Welcome window of the motherboard (ASUS FOXCOMM, BIOSTAR ECT) click delete repeatedly, you will enter the bios setup, very carefully,only looking for (cool and quiet) and check this, you can also need to check the CPU temperature ,,normal is 35 C to 45 C ,(if the temperature is over 50 C,reistall the CPU and used new cooler paste) ,then you give scape. save the changes and restart the PC, now the motherboard fan speed controlled, as required, only spun faster when you really need to cool the prossesador, such as a very graphical game ect, really going to notice a big change cpu fan sound, if that cool and quiet and had been activated o this is a factory PC like DELL ,ACER ,ect ,and have no change, you can buy a new cpu fan on e-bay very cheap,like factory amd 64x2 6000 cpu fan and for no will have more trouble

How to get AMD athlon 3700 socket 754 engineering sample cpu run at proper speed

Some systems have "bottlenecks," where small overclocking of a component can help realize the full potential of another component to a greater percentage than the limiting hardware is overclocked. For instance, many motherboards with AMD Athlon 64 processors limit the speed of four units of RAM to 333 MHz. However, the memory speed is computed by dividing the processor speed (which is a base number times a CPU multiplier, for instance 1.8 GHz is most likely 9x200 MHz) by a fixed integer such that, at stock speeds, the RAM would run at a clock rate near 333 MHz. Manipulating elements of how the processor speed is set (usually lowering the multiplier), one can often overclock the processor a small amount, around 100-200 MHz (less than 10%), and gain a RAM clock rate of 400 MHz (20% increase), releasing the full potential of the RAM.

AMD also produced x86 designs which competed with Intel on performance rather than price. In January 2002 the Pentium 4 gained a lead in sales and AMD marketing responded by giving their processors numeric suffixes approximating the clock rate that an AMD Thunderbird (and by inference a Pentium processor) would need to give matching performance, openly undermining the "megahertz myth".

AMD Duron 1.4G, 1.6G, 1.8G (Applebred)
You motherboard uses a "Socket A" CPU and therefore has limits to how high you can go.. I would recommend the XP 2200 or 2400+ as a good choice, but you can make your own choice.
