Question about Computers & Internet
If I change my processor but still keep the same motherboard will the boot sequence and startup be the same or not?
Assuming you're using a processor that will run in that motherboard, everything will stay the same - probably including the speed. (The CPU speed is the maximum speed it will run at - the speed it DOES run at is the speed of the motherboard. Putting in a faster CPU doesn't make it run faster.)

Probably the same but how do you know the processor will work with the motherboard?

Turn on your PC and listen for a beep. Your computer runs a diagnostic upon startup called "post." Post checks for the basic requirements for your system. This includes RAM, processor and video functions. If those three basic elements are working properly, you will hear one beep from your computer's speaker and you can be assured your processor still works.
If you hear multiple beeps, count the number of beeps you hear as this will help you determine if your processor is functioning properly. If you are running Phoenix BIOS, make sure you count and write down the beep sequence.
Consult your motherboard's BIOS instruction manual; there will be a section on the "post" startup. Five beeps means a processor error for most standard AMI BIOS systems. The number of beeps you here will tell you the problem your computer is experiencing that is preventing it from booting up. Once you know how many beeps to look for, you can safely determine if your CPU is still functioning properly.
