Possible cpu upgrades for p4vmm2 motherboard

I have a P4VMM2 motherboard with an Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz processor which I have tried to replace by an Intel Celeron 2.4 GHz from an ASUS motherboard, but it didn't work at all. Can some please tell me why?. I even set the motherboard jumpers to meet the new processor's frequence, but I didn't even get a message from the system telling me anything about the situation. Thanks in advance, Osmy

Re: Possible cpu upgrades for p4vmm2 motherboard

The highest processor that board will support is a 2.0ghz celeron, because of its lack of a v-core power supply.

Re: Possible cpu upgrades for p4vmm2 motherboard

I see that you have already had this answered at They were right when they answered you, you need to check your MB manual to see if it is capable of upgrading to the CPU that you want to use, not all MB support all CPU's just because they both have 478 pins. I looked on the ASUS website and they don't even list your MB model on there.

Hi guys, I'm new in this forum and I really need some help. I have a p4vmm2 motherboard with Intel Celeron 2.0 Ghz CPU and I want to upgrade it with Intel Pentium 2.4 CPU motherboard. I have already tried...

Whenever you try to upgrade motherboard and CPU's with Windows XP, you're probably going to have to format your drive and re-install XP. When you originally install XP it detects the motherboard and IDE controlers for your hard drives and installs the drivers needed but it doesn't install all drivers for motherborads and IDE controlers. When you swap out motherboards and the system tries to fire it doesn't have drivers available for the new motherboard and can't complete the boot into windows. Every once in a while you get luck and the new and old motherboard can use the same drivers but this is very rare. So when upgrading motherboards plan on backing up your hard drive of all files you need to keep and being prepared to format and re-install windows.

CPU upgrade not showing correctly

Check the installation instructions; it may be necessary to change some small jumpers on the board if it is not designed to auto-detect the processor.
If you don't have the info on the board, check with or or Elite's website for a download.

Motherboard and CPU

Well anything along the 2ghz line in cpu will do and as long as you get a compitibale motherboard that will be fine. If you want a specific combination the intel BX80557E2220 processor (Core 2 Duo) ans the MSI P31 Neo-F LGA775 Intel P31 1333 FSB DDR2 ATX i personally think is great. Please bear in mind you may also need new RAM for this combi.

Second opinion for ecs p4vmm2 8.1

It's ok to upgrade the processor to P4 the mother board is capable to run the pentium 4 2.0Ghz only . I said that because i'm using that type of motherboard ecs p4vmm2 with processor 2.0Ghz. But for my opinion the problem of your friend computer is not the processor is about the cooling fan heatsink because if the heatsink is not fit or properly lock the processor is over heating that's why the computer hanging and shutdown. If you can tight the two clip that was broken the problem is solved because i have also the same problem before one of my client computer. but if you friend want to upgrade to p4 it's better to buy also a new fan and heatsink for P4.

Thanks and God Bless

Cpu clock wrong

2500/256 celeron is 2.4 GHz. If there is a setting in bios, it should work. Most Intel motherboards do not allow you to change the clock speed as incressing clock speeds lead to system instability and less processor life. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE THE WARRANTY!!!
