I change a P4 3,2 GHz for a PentiumD 3,2 GHz and do not work

I was a Pentium4 HT at 3,2GHz working OK on my PC-Chips M985G. Now I try to change the P4 for a PentiumD at 3,2 GHz, but the bios can not boot. When I try to turn on, there is not video signal, and there is not the beep sound. What I have to do?

My processor is a p4 3.06 ghz and is only running at 1.6 ghz and i dont think ht is enabled and i don't have any options in bios to turn on ht how do i know if it is turned on or not.

Did the restart and bios clear get you into the BIOS maintenance mode to enable HT and reset the CPU speed ?

If that did not work i would be thinking that it may be worth checking the CPU itself to make sure it was not swapped out.

the thermal compuond may want a re-do as it is possible its running lower speed for a thermal issue

USES only 2ghz instead of 3

Have you just installed this processor as an upgrade?? Check the jumper settings on the motherboard and the multiplyer in the bios.You need 133Mhz clock speed. With the multiplier of 23 which is set in the bios automatically by the CPU id 23x133 = 3.06Ghz. I suspect that the jumper settings are for 100Mhz so 100x23 = 2.3Ghz. Let me know how you get on or if you have any more questions as i have the same motherboard and im gonna buy one of these processors @

Not Booting

Hi, This is an old board trying to run a hungry CPU. From the symptom you describe the poor thing may be wearing out right in front of you. Anyhow, - In order of likelihood your problem(s) are probably:
1 - Defective motherboard. PC chips is well known as a maker of cheap mobos. When run even a little hot they have a short lifespan. A 3Ghz Pentium Prescott needs a lot of power. A faulty part may not always kill a session but it can ruin your life. Try running the PC underclocked at ~2Ghz. See if the prob goes away. If so, better cooling the support chips may help. Best solution is replace this old warrior with a new mobo. You will also need a new PSU & CPU if this is the problem. Except for playing games, even slow dual core CPUs will perform better than a single core unit.
2 - Bad PSU. These also wear out, especially if run hot. Best solution is new PSU. If you do this, get a modern model that will handle a mobo upgrade should that also become necessary. Many options & prices here - be careful.
3 - Bad PCI card or RAM. If you already haven't - try removing all unnecessary hardware... then test for problem. Switch your DDR2 RAM in & out to test for defect.
4 - Bad CPU. Not likely but possible. try running the PC underclocked at ~2Ghz(if this mobo lets you). See if the prob goes away. If so, better cooling might be the hot tip

Processor compatibility

looks like you limited to the p4 Prescott, this is a p4 list of the cpu support from asus. I also looked at their bios update page and found no bios improvement. if you can move to the 775 platform ,you can move from p4. otherwise, the p4's are still  good . I had the cpu that is the 2nd one down. 3.2ghz oc'd to 3.8ghz full time with a max of 4.0ghz on air[775 platform] quad-pumped gave me a 1001.3mhz FSB
