Question about EliteGroup P4M800PRO-M Motherboard
At first I got a message "A 333MHz system bus processor is installed. The processor is not supported on this system board and will run at reduced processor clock speed. System performance will be impacted."
It booted only to show that message - but no further. I got the bright idea to change the overclock speed from 266 to 333. Then it would only turn on and do nothing else - not even a message. I put the original P4 processor back in, and tried it again but got the same message.
I then read the manual and it stated to turn off the power, and hold the Page Up key while powering on to reset the overclocking if it had failed. I did that, it made some sounds, and then I smelled something (like electronics burning up), and now it won't even power on.
I'm guessing I need to buy another mobo. So my real questions are:
1 - Is there anyway to possibly salvage the P4 processor and P4M900T-M2?
2 - If I get a new mobo, what mobo do you recommend?
*Note: I'd like to reuse my memory ddr2 if possible (I think it's 2 x 2GB ). I have a 500W PS. I have a 1GB ATI Radeon 4850 palit video card using pcExpress.
Hello u must have the processor for your motherboard to work I mean the one that has been working .
with that smell of burning means the processor ur trying to ugrape was not suited for the board so pray that the motherboard is ok
