Question about Foxconn 661FX7MF-S Motherboard

1 Answer

Mobo won't accept P4 CPU.

I have a Packard Bell GA-8SIMLNF motherboard which boots up with a Celeron D CPU. I would like to use a P4 3GHz CPU but it only starts up for about 5 seconds then turns off with this CPU installed. The specs say it can use a much higher CPU than 3 GHz so I am thinking that the BIOS needs updating to accept anything other than a Celeron CPU, or there is a BIOS setting to change the CPU type.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Hi,
There are FSB settings as well as voltage settings in your bios. Go to intel website to get correct voltage and FSB for the processor you wish to choose.

You can cause SERIOUS damage to your computer if these settings are not just right.

(If you do decide to flash bios, be very careful. Make sure you download the right version or your pc will be useless).

Good luck,
Hank

Put just the ram back into the motherboard, the pc will not boot without processor, ram and graphics pluged into the board, check this, if it will still not boot and you still get 3 beeps its a memory(ram) problem, and you will need to replace the memory stick.

Need motherboard manual for a gigabyt GA-8SIMLNF please can u help thanks


I set up this same mobo after my old one died and this was all I had. The manuals are fine except they have more pins than my mobo. Mine only has 9 pins, 4 at the top and 5 on the bottom. I got it to power on with the POWER SW on the top right hand 2 pins, positive to LHS I think. It doesn't matter if they're around the opposite way as it won't damage the board. The bottom left hand 2 pins are your HDD LED and the next 2 pins are your RESET SW. These pins are positive to RHS. The bottom 5th pin on the far right is not used. I tried all combinations on the 2 top left hand pins for the PWR LED but got no result so just left them off. I tried a P4 3GHz but it would only turn on for about 5 seconds then shut off. Maybe the BIOS is set only to accept a Celeron CPU. A BIOS upgrade may be in order.

Uppgrade of processor!


looks like that mobo can only suppoport up to 53 mhz front side bus for a celeron d processor
wht tht means is tht u can get any cpu tht has the front side bus up to 533mhz with the 775 socket forur motherboard

and forpentium 4 its 800mhz and agian any cpu with up to 800 mhz front side bus and 775



so ur best cpu for tht mobo would be the SL7RR it supports hyperthreading


here a direct link to intel'ssite

http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL7RR

SL7RR
3.40 GHz
800 MHz

Ga 8simlnf ram upgrade


There is no motherboard with this model number. Can you recheck this by looking on the board itself. Its right in the middle of the board.

In general though, you can usually put 4GBs of Ram in the G8 series but only Vista and later Linux versions will actually report above 3GBs.

Please reply using the comment box below. Thanks.
