Question about ASUS Intel 845 Chipset P4B (P4B WOA) Motherboard

2 Answers

Got a virus

I just received a Alienware Tower with all the components for free. The motherboard is an Azsus PB4 with a Pentium 4 Processor. I was just up all night re-configuring this tower to figure out why it was not working. Got that part figured out.

my present configuration is as follows 1 dvd drive, 1 dvd drive / burner, master / slave. 1 floppy, 2 hard drives, master / slave configuration. I have finally got the system to power up.

But when trying to start the operating system, I get the red screen of death, IT APPEARS THAT THERE IS A BOOT VIRUS. no wonder i got this for free.

Know i have tried to install a drive scrubber through the A drive, but it will not let me install it, then I tried to install MS-DOS version 6.22. this time it let me install the software, it even did a format on the C Drive, and then installed the DOS.

Know my window is up and running, update ECSD successfully then it reads starting MS-DOS. know this has been trying to start for 1/2 hour know, i know it usually don't take this long to start the DOS.

I have tried also going into the CMOS set up and changing the HDD boot order, but nothing seems to work. This Boot Virus is kicking my ***, any suggestions, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

A full format should take care of this boot virus. You will want to delete the primary partition(and secondary if there is one). I would partition the drive only and use the windows cd rom. Make sure the first boot device in the BIOS is the cd-rom drive. When windows goes to install it will format the hard drive. By deleting the partition you will erase the boot sector of the drive. After windows has installed run a complete virus scan either with software are use the online scanner from www.trendmicro.com . As far a the drives on the serial ata usually one connection is the master and the rest are slaves. The drive setup is for a RAID setup.

What type of dual core processor can I use for my dc7600?


The motherboard for the dc7600 has an Intel LGA775 processor socket. However, not all LGA775 processors are compatible with the motherboard. For the small form factor, the following CPUs are supported: Intel Celeron D Processors:
Intel Celeron D 331 Processor (2.66-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 336 Processor (2.80-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 346 Processor (3.06-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB)
Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology:
Intel Pentium 4 521 Processor (2.8-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 524 Processor (3.06-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 541 Processor (3.2-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 620 Processor (2.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 630 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 631 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 640 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 641 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 650 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 651 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 661 Processor (3.6-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) or
Intel Pentium D Dual Core Processors:
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 915 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 925 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 930 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 945 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

Unfortunately, these are old processors and I don't see any available new. Newegg.com lists a couple available as refurbished. You may be better off getting a new computer with either a Intel I3 or current AMD processor.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Support dualcore?


That is a socket 478 motherboard. I doubt that one even gets dual core processors in the 478 chipset. Also according to the ECS website, this is a Pentium 4/Celeron board. More info can be found here.

UPGRADING FROM PENTIUM 3 PROCESSOR TO PENTIUM 4 PROCESSOR


To upgrade from a Pentium 3 to a Pentium 4 processor, you would have to replace the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor has more pins on it than the Pentium 3 and would not sit in a Pentium 3 motherboard.

It is not unusal when the power supply blows up that it can damage some of the components in your computer.

DELL OPTIPLEX GX150 Upgrade to Intel Pentium 4


Upgrading to a PIII to a PIV usually requires a new motherboard. Especially with that kind of speed you want to go to. The processor uses a different socket set and requires a different motherboard to absorb twice as much heat as you are putting out of the computer right now (the faster the processor, the more heat is released). Power supply should be around 400 watts as well because you will be needing a different cooling system as well.

Motherboard upgrade for Dell GX150


If the motherboard you have installed accepts a socket 370 processor and you replaced the board, it would also have to be a socket 370 unless you were planning on upgrading the processor also. If you wanted to keep your existing computer case and other hardware, you might want to look for an inexpensive pentium 4 motherbard and processor to replace it instead of the pentium 3 you now have. If you get a new board that uses the same memory that you now have installed it would be a relatively inexpensive upgrade.
