Here are possible solutions to your problem. Since you didn't give us some beeps from your PC.

1. Measure the voltage of CMOS-Battery it should be 3V if not change it, P4 is sensitive to it. OR

2. Try other memory first to test if it works fine. OR

3. You needed to refresh the installation of your windows XP to bring back or to repair the files in its system. Boot your WinXP CD and there find the one that refreshes the installation... Don't worry it will not erase your files... It should not try to create a new file-directory.

I have a Pentium 4, 3.00Ghz 3.01 Ghz desktop and wish to upgade its am memo fom 500 mb to 4 gb or even 8gb. Is this possible? and what memo should I look for on ebay ?

You need to find the motherboard manual with all the specifications in
to find out what type to use.

Also note: There's no point putting more than 4 gig in if you only have Windows 32 bit.

I have IBM p6 motherboard with processor Intel 1.8ghz/256/400/1.75v Processor had demaged. I replaced with Intel 1.8ghz/512/400/1.525v When I starts the system it gave error "0167 no processor bios...

I suggest this is not going to work.
1.Your motherboard is supplying 1.75 DC volts of electricity to the processor socket.
You have installed either a SSpec number SL68Q, or SL62P,
Intel Pentium 4 processor. (The sSpec number is on the top of the processor case)

These Intel Pentium 4 processors use 1.425 to 1.525 DC volts of electricity. If you haven't already, you are going to burn this processor up.

Also, the Intel Pentium 4 that you had before, is based on the Willamette Core. (180nm) These earlier Pentium 4's did not have HT.
Hyperthreading Technology.

The Intel Pentium 4 you have in it now, is based on the Northwood Core. (130nm) These Pentium 4's come with HT.

Even if you could go into your BIOS Setup utility, and change the CPU voltage, and lower it, the HT in the processor you have now, wouldn't work on this motherboard.
(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another name is Microprocessor, or simply -> Processor)

You won't be able to lower the voltage in BIOS Setup, for this processor. IF you did, then you would change the Front Bus Speed, and the ram memory wouldn't work.

Obtain an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that uses the Socket 478 processor socket, has a 400MHz FSB, and is based on the Willamette Core.

Here is a list of Willamette Core, Intel Pentium 4 Microprocessors, that will work,

Asus p4gb-vm main board problem

Hi shameer123,

The above scenario confirms board failure. This is due to wear and tear which we cannot prevent.

I believe it is time to replace with other P4 478 chipset board available in your country.

No display

If it boots with no video, then it is a bad built-in video controller. If you get a long beep then its the processor.

My pc always hung

If you can borrow the two following items from a friend it can help you find which component is causing the problem, as I have also seen this problem several times in many machines.

1. Replace the graphic card, as their might be a faulty memory chip in your VGA card which is causing this problem. Which is the reason why it sometimes crashes while working.
2. One of your RAM (memory) is failing, again you can run some tools to check, but the best option is to find another similar module and replace it and check it.

I am VERY confused by your description here. I can't tell if you're talking about the processor as it appears inside of your computer itself...or if you're refering to the processor as it appears in Windows.

Please try to be a little more specific with your explanation. Go step-by-step in what you are doing and what is happening.

No display on monitor

Hi, sounds like a problem with your base unit, might be a lose graphics card, a stick of memory might need taken out and put back in. shouldnt be expensive to fix. as that will give you the fault that you describe with the monitor. as the base unit aint posting, and the signal aint being recieved, if you have basic knowledge you should try taking out the graphics card and refitting it, usually does the job :-) All the best, John
