Ibm fru pn 49p1599

The p/n (FRU 49P1599) is a Gigabyte motherboard, their p/n GA-G8IGMIU Rev 1.1 It seems to be a socket 478 type with FSB 400 or 533MHz, Intel 845G chipset, and DDR1 memory. In the downloads section of Gigabyte's website it is not present, probably because it so old it has been removed. In this section there is the opportunity to get the manual for a motherboard and the CPU support list, amongst other downloads. A similar m/b, the G8IG model supports ONLY older Williamette and Northwood type P4 CPUs, not the (slightly) newer Prescott ones. I suspect that your CPU is not working because it is a Prescott type (or it is just broken). To check what process your CPU was made by use the program Speccy, or take a magnifying glass and examine your processor (having carefully cleaned it up) for the S-code, RK or BK number, and look it up on Intel website (ARK) or in CPU-World.

AND you should contact Gigabyte technical support (you have to go through the register rigmarole) to see they are able to answer questions you may have, get the manual and the CPU support list.

Does Intel Pentium 4, 2 GHz Processor support 2GB DDR1 RAM..?

Type of RAM supported has nothing to do with the processor make & type in most cases. It is more important to verify that the motherboard supports this kind of RAM.
In general, most motherboards supporting the Intel Pentium 4 2.0 GHz processor support also DDR1 RAM.

I have a mainboard of model D845GVAD2------------------------AAC18931-104. It has already intall the Intel celeron processor of 1.8GHz. Now I want to upgrade my processor. So what high frequency processor...

The Intel® Desktop Board D845GVAD2 supports a single Pentium® 4 processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz or 533 MHz, or a single Celeron® processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.

So you can install upto 3.06 GHz 533 MHz(cache memory) processor and also update the ram 2 GB 400 mhz.
Dont install Prescott processor.
Hope it will help you.

Need a prossesor for motherboard

You can also use any other intel 775 socket processor as well.

Here's a list of all the processors you can use.

Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )

(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
