HI, AT LEAST HALF THE TIME I TRY TO SWITCH TO A DIFFERENT AUTHORIZED CPU MY MOBO BOARDS WON'T ADJUST TO IT. I HAVE A TWO PCCHIPS M748LMRT WHICH HAVE A JUMPER JP7 THAT IS SUPPOSED TO SWITCH FROM SLOT 1 TO SOCKET 370 CELERON, PENTIUM II OR PENTIUM III . I HAVE HAD THIS PROBLEM ON MANY MINI ATX STYLE MOBO'S. IF I HAVE THE MANUEL I FOLLOW IT TO THE LETER BUT MANY TIMES THE BOARD JUST WON'T UPGRADE. IT'S LIKE THEY GET STUCK ON ONE CPU SPEED. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON THE STEPS I SHOULD TAKE TO HELP MY BOARDS SWITCH BETTER. I AM USUALLY TRYING TO GO HIGHER. THANKS MY NAME IS MIKE

Re: CHANGING CPU'S TYPES AND SPEEDS
On these old motherboard there is usually one switch that is used to change the CPU type - from Slot to Socket, in this case. But there are usually a different set of jumpers that control the CPU speed. And usually another set to control the bus speed, assuming it supports more than one. In this case it might support 100 or 133, depending on the CPU.
In some cases, you can set the jumpers to "AUTO", which automatically selects the bus and CPU speed. This was only available on the higher end, newer and more expensive boards.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

All Asus P5GC-MX/1333 mobos are "X-series" boards.
If you put higher speed ram on that mobo, it will just run the ram at lower speeds.
The board will not take 1333 speed DDR3, because it is only DDR2 compatible.
OVerclocking is complicated and risky, here is neither the place to teach or learn overclocking.
Some newer core 2 chips will automatically overclock, when all but 1 core is in hibernation (which will never happen if you are using vista). Other than that overclocking involves setting the bios to increase the memory buss speed, as well as slightly increasing the cpu and ram voltages as needed for stability. There is a great risk associated with manually overclocking and adjusting voltages, and should not be attempted by beginners on machines they value.
Does it POST and can you get into the BIOS? You need to set the FSB to 133MHz and the Ratio to 21x.
(I am assuming you did install the CPU correctly and installed the fan.)
If you can't get into the BIOS, you may need to reset it using JP14 on the motherboard.
Turn OFF power. Remove the AC power cord. Hold the power button in for 5 to 10 seconds. (This is done to discharge any capacitors.) JP14 normally is on Pins 1 and 2. Place the jumper on Pins 2 and 3 for approx. 10 seconds. Then place it back on pins 1 and 2. Connect the power cord and turn it on. This will set all the BIOS settiings to default and you should be able to set the FSB and Ratio.
Do you have a manual for the MB? you can get it from:
1. sorry my friend dont do like that, some motherboard wont support such type of processors. 2.some board shows the maximum clock speed installed by the manufacturer in the Bios 3.if you put more Ghz Processor on that board and expect the same speed and clock to be shown on the screen, i think it is not possible 4. any how to speed up your pc, you can use Advance system care, which will clean your registry,junk files,unwanted cookies, defrag your computer and keep fast. 5.try it, all the best, the given link is for
Advance system care (registry cleaner) ---------------------------------------------------- http://download.cnet.com/Advanced-SystemCare-Free/3000-2086_4-10407614.html
download it, install it,after installation, Press CARE to run the program.
the problem is that the mother board you are now using has a 4th wire that sences cpu temp this allow the heat sink fan to change speed to get this to work correctly you will need to replace the fan with a 4 wire style. what is happening is your not getting a temp siginal back to motherboard so the fan controller think it hot and send full power to fan alll the time the stock fan in hp systems is not very good any way .Get a good heat sink and fan to fit your new board ebay has them very cheap 5.00 to 20.00 this will all so increase you system temp and all get the proper cooling when you really need it.
u check almost all ....
also check with u r power buton of front panel of pc if this button is get short then it is possible .....please disconnect switch from board & just short with any metal ....if u r pc is not geting shut down please replace rower switch ...
if this information is useful for u please Rate me........
Don't mean to butt in here but I'll bet the 4 pin_ATX 12v connector is not connected to the board. That 4 pin_ATX 12v connector give's the CPU it's power. Without is the system will not boot. Some boards will give off that weird sound you are hearing.
Make sure you have used the proper Fan connection on the motherboard and that you used all the pins in it. Usually it consists of 3 to 4 pins for CPU fans. Does your Fan have 3 pins? If not then it is not compatible for Fan Speeds. Also check your BIOS for Fan adjustments.
Hope this helps.
