CPU Power, Changing to a lover voltage CPU

Hi im not sure so i thought id post a question , im currently running a Pentium 4 1.6 GHZ Willamette but i want to upgrade it to a 2.8GHZ Northwood CPU but i know those user lower voltages than the willamette processors so what im asking is if i install a lover voltage CPU will i adjust auto maticly or do i have to fiddle with the jumpers?? Many thanks Peter

Hi there
Firstly update the bios, then install the new CPU, go into the bios settings and set them to default, that will auto adjust the computers settings, then you can have a look in the bios again to make sure the voltage is running as preferred.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

    what you need to do is note down the make and model of the motherboard, go to the manufacturers support website and download the latest bios update from there.

    Good luck

Computer shuts off after 2 mins when case side panel is on


Might be faulty PSU power supply unit
it sounds like a loose connection of some type check the power button connections make sure the soldered wire connections are good and dust free

check cmos battery seating some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

it could be a loose or faulty power or data lead check these from motherboard to hard drive also make sure the CPU cental processing unit has a secure dust free seating an has thermal paste

it does sound odd
hope this helps

I cant overclock my system but i go to bios now whati had to do


The BIOS. Overclocking is best done in the computer's BIOS (Basic Input/Output System or Binary Integrated Operating System). There are also some motherboards that let you do a basic increase in power by setting a jumper, but this is dangerous and you have no real stability control.


There are some software programs available which allow you to overclock inside the operating system, but the best results are achieved by changing BIOS settings. Usually you can get into your BIOS by pressing DEL (some systems may use F2, F10, or Ctrl-Enter) as soon as your computer begins the POST

(Power On Self Test - when it shows the RAM size, processor speed, etc.).


Here, you can change your FSB (front side bus), memory timings, and your CPU multiplier (also referred to as CPU Clock Ratio).

Clearing your CMOS. Sometimes, an overclock can become unstable. If this happens, or your computer will not boot, you will need to reset the BIOS back to default and start over again.


This is done by clearing the CMOS (a small piece of memory on the motherboard which stores your BIOS configuration, and is powered by a small battery). Some newer motherboards will bypass user settings in the CMOS if the computer fails POST (often caused by a faulty overclock). However, most motherboards require a manual clear.


This can be done in two ways, depending on your motherboard. The first way is by changing the position of the clear CMOS jumper on your motherboard, waiting a few minutes, then repositioning the jumper to its original place.


The CMOS Jumper

The second way, if your motherboard doesn't have this jumper, consists of unplugging your computer, removing the little CMOS battery, then pressing the power button (your capacitors will discharge), and waiting a couple of minutes.


Then you have to refit the battery and plug in your computer. Once your CMOS is cleared, all BIOS settings are reset back to default and you'll have to start the overclocking process all over again. Just so you know, this step is only necessary if your overclock becomes unstable.


Locked or Unlocked. The first thing to know when you start the process of overclocking, is whether your processor is multiplier locked or unlocked.

To check whether your CPU is locked, lower your multiplier via the BIOS one step, for example from 11 to 10.5. Save and exit your BIOS and your computer will restart.


If your computer posts again and shows the new CPU speed, it means your CPU is unlocked. However, if your computer failed to post (screen remains black) or no CPU speed change is present, this means your multiplier is locked


Multiplier Unlocked Processors. Usually, your max overclock is limited by your memory, or RAM. A good starting place is to find the top memory bus speed in which your memory can handle while keeping it in sync with the FSB. To check this, lower your CPU multiplier some steps (from 11 to 9, for example) and increase your FSB a few notches (e.g.: 200 MHz to 205 MHz).


After this, save and exit your BIOS. There are a few ways to test for stability.

If you make it into Windows, that is a good start. You can try running a few CPU / RAM intensive programs to stress these components. Some good examples are SiSoft Sandra, Prime95, Orthos, 3DMark 2006 and Folding@Home.


You may also choose to run a program outside of Windows, such as Memtest. Load a copy of Memtest onto a bootable floppy, then insert the disk after you have exited the BIOS.

Continue to increase your FSB until Memtest starts reporting errors. When this happens, you can try to increase the voltage supplied to your memory.


Do note that increasing voltages may shorten the life span of your memory. Also, another option is to loosen the timings on the memory (more on this a bit later). The previous FSB setting before the error will be your max FSB. Your max FSB will fully depend on what memory you have installed. Quality, name-brand memory will work best for overclocking.


Now that you know your max FSB, you'll figure out your max multiplier. Keeping your FSB @ stock, you raise your multiplier one step at a time. Each time you restart, check for system stability. As mentioned above, one good way to do this is by running Prime95.


If it doesn't post (reread the section about clearing the CMOS), or Prime 95 fails, you can try to raise the core voltage a bit. Increasing it may or may not increase stability. On the other hand, the temperature will also be increased. If you are going to increase the core voltage, you should keep an eye on temperatures, at least for a few minutes.


Also note that increasing voltages may shorten the life span of your CPU, not to mention void your warranty. When your computer is no longer stable at a given multiplier setting, lower your multiplier one step and take that as your max multiplier.


Now that you have your max FSB speed and your max multiplier, you can play around and determine the best settings for your system. Do note that having a higher FSB overclock as opposed to a higher multiplier will have a greater impact on overall system performance.

Impossible to boot after changing BIOS settings. No BIOS reset jumber No removable battery Nothing in the documentation. How can I reset the BIOS of thie computer ? Thanks,


If not even the pressing of the Del key during POST brings the BIOS screen then you will have to dismantle the unit, disconnect the SDD and try to boot like that. If it fails even now then the BIOS has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to send the unit for repair - a dealer or the manufactured will have to reload a new BIOS at a hardware level, with special tools and software.

Hi! help plz!


1) Not sure what you want to do. Return to Win98? You may be hardpressed to find Win98 drivers, especially if you have any newer peripherals.

2) Since a cpu has no mechanical parts, it makes no difference whether it is vertical or horizontal. A cd/dvd drive however may be a different story.

3) If you only have 2 RAM slots that hold a max of 256mb, it stands to reason that you can only have 512mb total. There used to be some software programs that were supposed to have the effect of increasing RAM, but I never had much faith in them.

I have put a sempron 3.4 processor in but the system only recognises it as 2ghz ?


Your processor speed is actually correct AMD calculate the clock speeds differently from Pentium type processors, a 3400+ is a 2.0 GHZ processor, see the list below for speeds Sempron 2500+ 1.40 GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 2600+ 1.60 GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 2800+ 1.60 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3000+ 1.80GHz 800 MHz 128 KB 754 Sempron 3100+ 1.80 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3300+ 2 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Sempron 3400+ 2 GHz 800 MHz 256 KB 754 Don't worry too much about the proceesor not being recognised as long as you know it is running at the correct speed.
