Supports processors at 400 / 533MHz front side bus
Or higher, it says. But doesn't say how higher. It's a fair assessment that if it is a Pentium 4 socket 478 chip, it should work. Then it's a case of choosing one that suits your budget.
Have a look on the Asus site for the latest BIOS updates too - they might have a clue as to what chip you can go to - http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S533-MX&product=1&type=All&SLanguage=en
Er, no - it doesn't tell you. But if you go thru the page you will find BIOS version 1005 that "
P4S533-MX BIOS 1005 Support new Intel P4 CPU" and the latest bios is 1007.002 There's a motherboard user manual further down on the page. Make sure you choose the English one. Seems the issue is FSB speed, 533 or 400. No big problem for most, but I did see a Pentium4 3.0Ghz chip at 800 FSB so just check the speed of the processor matches the specs the motherboard handles. Like you say, looks like the 3.2 might be too fast because of the FSB requirement. Remember, a P4 is going to be quicker than a celeron anyhow so just go with the fastest 533 FSB chip you can find. A short-cut to the english manual, here - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s533-mx/e1187_p4s533-mx.pdf
you may check
1) your Intel pentium 4 3.2 GHZ cpu socket 478 processor #sl7nb what's FSB?( see on the chip surface, if 533 FSB can use but 800FSB could not match your motherboard if which is not support 800 FSB. that's why no display.
2) check RAM stick speed, try to increase a level, for example 266 to 333.
is this helpful please feedback thanks
are you sure that you have the same zif socket types either a intel celeron or an intel pentium, they are different socket types, but if theres nothing wrong with your other cpu your not going to see any difference in speed, upgrade your memory, but obviously if your other cpu has failed check the socket types and then reset your bios on the motherboard shorting terminals.
I see that you have already had this answered at Techspot.com
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.
