Question about Foxconn 661FX7MF-S Motherboard
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?
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).
