Question about Intel (P42000400512SK478) Pentium 4, 2 GHz Processor

1 Answer

No display

I've just changed my motherboard and cpu to a ASRock P4VX4 with Pentium 4. Once turned on there is no display on the monitor. Is this likely to be caused by the processor being faulty ( I bought it on ebay from someone who said they thinks it works ok)?
When I changed back to my original board it works fine. Since the only difference between the two is the boardand the processor it leads me to think the processor is faulty.

Re: No display

If it boots with no video, then it is a bad built-in video controller. If you get a long beep then its the processor.

The CPUs should fit in the socket. The question is really did your motherboard manufacturer design the board to take the newer chips. Post the make and model of your motherboard for more help.

Any Pentium 4 northwood or willamette CPU should work, when ordering your CPU make sure is for socket 478, you can use up to 2.80 Mhz speeds on that motherboard. you can get those on ebay for a good price.

Instal better processors ive one at 2.4 . i want 2 X 2.4 PROCESSORS on a asrock motherboard ,E5200 @2.50ghz, 2 gig ram,Pentium(R) DUAL-CORE CPU. How do i install this on motherboard

The CPU support list is here for you to check.

If your MoBo supports the CPU you wish to fit, remove the heat sink and cooling fan, unclip the CPU and replace in the correct orientation. DO NOT attempt to force the CPU into the socket.

Also note you may have to upgrade the heatsink and cooling fan.

Make sure you go into the bios settings of your motherboard and shut off the on board VGA. You will need to plug the monitor into the onboard VGA adaptor before proceeding to use the secondary adaptor.

Upgrade from Pentium 3 to Pentium 4

what socket is the Pentium 3? Socket A. The sockets have to be compatible for example you can't upgrade a Dual Core for a Core 2 Duo because although the chipsets look the same the motherboard may not support the new instruction set. I had this problem recently as i wanted to upgrade my Intel Celeron D 3.02ghz to the Pentium Dual Core 1.8ghz and although the chips were identical and fitted perfectly in my mobo, the actual mobo i was using (foxconn) wouldnt work with it forcing me to buy an ASRock mobo and replace the entire system.
