PC Upgrade for a biostar p4m90-m7a motherboard


Biostar Support > P4M90-M7A > Main Support page,

http://www.biostar-usa.com/mbdetails.asp?model=K8M80-M7A

Uses a Socket 754 processor socket.

How pray-tell are you using an Intel processor that uses an LGA 775 processor socket?

You aren't.
What is the motherboard manufacturer name, and model number?
Post back in a Comment.

However if we are to use the Biostar P4M90-M7A for an example;

Biostar main support page above;
Top right; small subheading -> Support
Click on the blue, (Purple?) subheading -> CPU Support

As for the motherboard in question that uses the Intel Pentium Dual Core E2200, find out what the motherboard chipset is, then you will know what CPU's are supported.

(You know now that the processor socket is an LGA 775)

I want to upgrade my CPU capacity from 1.2 GHZ and want to know my motherboard so much support??? my motherboard is GA-8IDX (845 chipset)


If you go to CPU-Upgrade.com, you can see all of the different processors that are compatible with your motherboard:

http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Gigabyte/GA-8IDX.html

The ones highlighted in pink are not supported for your motherboard, the ones highlighted in orange may or may not be, and all the ones in white are compatible with your motherboard. It looks like you have several high-end options, up to 2.8 GHz.

Processor upgrade


Here is a link to the manual for the motherboard.
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock423/850/
p4t-m/p4tm-100.pdf

The manual doesn't really say what cpu speeds the board supports.
1.4 ghz was about the fastest processor speed when the board came out. My guess is that a 2.0 ghz cpu may not work.
It would be a slight improvement over the 1.4 ghz cpu, but not a huge difference.
