Cpu upgrade wont happen

Hi, I tried upgrading my celeron 2.6 to a pentium 4 3ghz SL7E4 cpu. Physically the job was easy but on power up it wouldn't boot up, fan started, mobo light came on, no beep and blank screen. Changed back to old cpu and working as before.

Ok i checked the ASUS website and looked up the CPU compatibility list for your board here:
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

But unfortunately that particular CPU doesn’t seem to be supported. Must be something to do with the technology inside the CPU or the amount of L2 cache or something like that. (it would require some rather intensive research to find out exact reason why...

And when searching for ASUS motherboards that are compatible with that CPU it comes up with this short list;

AP120-E1
AP130-E1

PSCHL009
AP140R-E1
P4RD1-MX


Did you clear the cmos when installing the new cpu before powering it up?

i know the CPU you have now runs at 400FSB and the new one runs at 800FSB But that board supports both speeds so that shouldn’t be a problem.

What type of RAM do you have ?
maybe check owners manual for memory compatibility chart for new 800FSB CPU

Have you tried the latest beta bios from ASUS site :
I can not guarantee that it will work but it is worth a try.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?model=P4S800D-X%20&f_type=34&SLanguage=en-us
NOTE: Updating the bios can be risky and should only be done to resolve compatibility issues or things like that (or to add CPU support) In the rare event of a power failure during bios update your motherboard could become permanently unusable. (Always use a brand new floppy and follow the instructions to the letter when updating system bios)

    If your going to save for a new system i would recommend getting an intel quad core CPU system.

    And if your a gamer then an SLI board with NVIDIA chipset is the way to go...

    it is worth it. I have QX6700 CPU with ASUS Striker Extreme board and I push this computer to the max and it seems to handle anything i throw at it with no problem...

    Only issue with it is that stock CPU heatsink and fan are not enough for overclocking.

    Im saving up now for a good liquid cooler for it.

Does Microstar MS7525 motherboard support Intel(R) Core 2 Quad Q8300 cpu and ATI Radeon HD5450?


Hi, you can see some info here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01386897&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en#N280

As far that i can see you can not use the Quad core cpu
in this mainboard.
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
  • Core 2 Duo E7xxx (Wolfdale-M)
  • Core 2 Duo E4x00 (Conroe)
  • Pentium E2xxx series (Conroe)
  • Celeron Dual Core E1xx0 series (Conroe)
  • Celeron 4xx series (Conroe)

But you can use the graphic card as long it is PCI-E.

Your motherboard specs are at http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/detail_spec.aspx?ID=en-us0000152

Looks like you could go up to a 3.8GHz P4, make sure you get a fan that will cool it properly.
