Re: replacement

You should be able to use the same HDD, Floppy drive & CDrom drives, You should be able to use the case, if it has a removable plate for the outputs as they will most certainly differ from your original mobo. However you need to check your PSU as the P4 has a requirement for a 4pin 12 volt line which is not present on the older PSUs, however you can get a new PSU and fit it into your case for about £30-£40 Your P4 motherboard is also unlikely to use the same RAM as your P3 so that will need to be replaced. (as it will be incompatible with the new processor)

Currently i am using desktop computer celeron 1.7 Ghz which i am thinking to replaced by a P4(2.8 or 3.06) processor on the same motherboard. Apparently there is a voltage difference between 2...


If you motherboard will accept the P4 speed you want, you will NOT need to change anything. The board will automatically adjust the voltage when it sense the new cpu. I do recommend you upgrade your power supply that will support the voltage requirement. Most time when vendors build a pc with a low voltage cpu they usually use low voltage power supplies.

Check your motherboard specs, inparticular the voltage requirments and processor that are compatiable with your model board.

Good Luck.

I am having the computer with Intel 845GVSR motherboard,P4 Processor,1 gb RAM Configuration. When i switch on the system, three beep sounds come and the system is not booting. But the RAM is in working...

For that first open cpu cabinet then refix RAM memory try it in defferent slot on motherbord.
Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings goes to defaults.
Then open processor fan and processor then refix both.
Clean dust from all parts.
Reconnect ATX power connector to motherbord.
Reconnect power cable and sata or ide cable to harddisk.
If any PCI cards are installed then remove it from pci clot then check.
Make sure your motherbord is not ground with cabinet check in outside of cabinet .
Let me know if you need further assistance.

PC INTEL P4 /Motherboard foxconn 661fx7mi-s DOES NOT POWER ON

Seems like the motherboard is broken...
Yous hould first try the PC with another motherboard, if you have one and are able to switch all the components.
If then the PC boots, the motherboard is broken. You could try taking it to a computershop, maybe they can spot a problem, but I guess if something, like a fuse or a single wire, burnt through the only way to fix it is to replace all of them, which would be more exoensive than a new motherboard.

If you need any help finding a new motherboard just ask me.

Motherboard power problem due to atx 12v cable

I tried different power supply but its still not powering up. But when i remove the 4 pin 12V cable from power supply the cpu fan is rolling, it means that the power supply is working but when i tried to connect the 4 pin then the cpu fan stop just a second and never rolled on. The main problem is the 4 pin, the model is Asus P5P800-VM. I tried to reset the cmos and replaced the battery but it wont work out. Please help me!!!

You probably should just because of the video card you are running. If your computer has a spot for a fan on the cabinet that isn't being used, it wouldn't hurt to drop one in.

Changing a P3 motherboard for a P4 motherboard

P-4 boards want at least a 300w power supply, P3 were not so picky. Next, swapping boards is easy but remember to stay in the same form factor, (the relative size length and width) a server board won't fit in a micro case.

The location of the stand offs (where the screw holes are) may have to be changed. P4 boards have 20 pin or 24 pin power connectors so the appropriate power supply will need to be ordered. If you are running a lot of peripherals a 450w ps at least.

Now you decide if you want a board with on board, video,nic,sound,etc.

then you have to order the supported processor/heatsink and fan/thermal grease/supported Ram etc.

I've been doing this for years so i probably left out a lot.

Lately because of costs I've resorted to backward building.
I decided since DDR2 is cheap, find a board that supports that ram in a processor socket I want to use (socket 478-775) etc.

Dead new motherboard

Are you using a 24 pin or 20 pin power supply? Can you confirm the power supply you are using does indeed work?

Dell Dimension 4100 Mobo upgrade to a P4 based system

Well the two would not be compatible cause one is a P3 and the next is a P4 two completely different socket types so it wouldn't work but what u can do is buy a new motherboard if u want to upgrade to a P4...thats the only thing that is recommended from such a devices cause an upgrade wouldn't be possible to do .
