Hi,

Since you upgraded the processor now it requires BIOS (Basic Input output system) update to get it working correctly... Tell me your computer model number so that i can paste link to download BIOS update for you which you need to download and install to get your computer working !!
:-)

Thanks ..

Nx7300 black screen processor update


The motherboard will not support the new processors, one they are dual channel and your motherboard is not, creating a conflict, plus the configuration settup is different and I suspect voltage issues. Sorry! but the motherboard is not siutable for this modification.

Nx7300 black screen processor update


all that work on old Compaq why?
if the DC pack voltage is in spec then its ok.
a voltmeter tells you that easy, we, when lids off and at the internal jacks pins, under full load.
most laptops, had many processor choices, and up to 3 power packs matching that and up to 3 video cars, my HP5840w has that.

if BIOS screens are dead, you lost power, Im sure screen is ok)
BIOS most always work its resident in ROM and always works.
even with HDD /SSD removed.
its the acid test for all PCs.

yes, older than dirt.

Upgrading CPU


Yeah, it was a bit hard to find, not being a currernt model I was stuck on the Asus site trying to find out for you.
Then I found this site -
http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles/view.php?cid=6&id=465&pg=
It says
  • Socket 478 for Intel� Pentium 4 / Celeron processors
  • Intel� Pentium 4 Processors 1.4GHz - 2.53GHz or higher
  • Intel� Celeron Processors 1.7GHz - 1.8GHz or higher
  • Supports processors at 400 / 533MHz front side bus
    Or higher, it says. But doesn't say how higher. It's a fair assessment that if it is a Pentium 4 socket 478 chip, it should work. Then it's a case of choosing one that suits your budget.
    Have a look on the Asus site for the latest BIOS updates too - they might have a clue as to what chip you can go to -
    http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S533-MX&product=1&type=All&SLanguage=en
    Er, no - it doesn't tell you. But if you go thru the page you will find BIOS version 1005 that " P4S533-MX BIOS 1005
    Support new Intel P4 CPU" and the latest bios is 1007.002

    There's a motherboard user manual further down on the page. Make sure you choose the English one.
    Seems the issue is FSB speed, 533 or 400. No big problem for most, but I did see a Pentium4 3.0Ghz chip at 800 FSB so just check the speed of the processor matches the specs the motherboard handles. Like you say, looks like the 3.2 might be too fast because of the FSB requirement.
    Remember, a P4 is going to be quicker than a celeron anyhow so just go with the fastest 533 FSB chip you can find.
    A short-cut to the english manual, here - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s533-mx/e1187_p4s533-mx.pdf

    Re. aspire 7104 celeron processor can it upgraded to T2050 duo core


    you need driver for your cpu why?

    if your bios doesnt detect it correctly you need to update your bios, but in most cases there is no need to isntall a cpu driver.

    Upgrade the processor on a Toshiba equium l40 series from a celron M


    The core2 duo chips will be a different socket to your celeron cpu so can do that unfortunately. You may be able to upgrade to a faster cpu of the same socket type but will probably need a bios update for it to run at proper speed.

    Unfortunately laptops arent really designed to be upgraded at all bar extra ram/hd/dvdrw.

    Hope that helps?
