so this is the board..no doubt that the cpu fits and is a good choice for you.
however,if the old one works fine and this one ,even if it is new,does not wiork,the only rational conclusion is that this one is malfunctioning ,maybe from the factory,or maybe one of the pins doesnt make a real contact.
check very attentive the integrity of the pins and of the cpu socket in the motherboard.
there are also some cases that the motherboard doesnt support the high Frequence of the new processor,but that was a problem for the old PCs..I doubt you have it with your motherboard.
I suggest you to bring it back and to ask for a replacement,or at least go with it to  a specialised cervice and let them check it.
sorry for not beeing a huge help to you,so dont rate my answer if you dont feel to..
bye bye and good luck..keep me up to date with your situation
bye

Menus Locked in BIOS of 5014c-mt super server. Cant navigate to any sub menus... How did this happen????


Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.supermicro.com/products/system/1u/5014/sys-5014c-mt.cfm

Try to reset the bios, by removing the cmos battery.
And insert it again.
This will clear the bios, to factory settings.
But you have to setup the bios again: date, clock, boot settings etc.
When you get it running again, try upgrading the drivers and bios to the latest version.

Hope this will help you.

New computer won't boot -


I had a similar problem with asus. 1) check online that the motherboard supports that cpu. Mine did not. I had to return it. 2) try the memory in different slots and combinations 3) try a different video card 4) check the CMOS clear jumper os properly set to disabled. Set it to enabled (power off first) 1 time to clear it. reset jumper back to disabled, and power on as usual. I'd suspect the motherboard needs to be flashed, but you obviously cannot flash it without it working... return it to point of purchase, or have them flash it and show you that it's working with your processor before you bring it back home.

How to upgrade BIOS in my XW400?


Upgrading the BIOS is an easy task but not recommended unless your computer has a problem which will be solved by a BIOS upgrade.

I assume that you are aware that a failed upgrade may render you system unusable till it is reloaded. Primary cause of a failed upgrade is a power failure so please make sure your PC has a back-up power source in case of a power failure.

The latest BIOS update can be downloaded from this website.

Download the exe file on your desktop and double click on run it. It is to be used on Win XP or 2000.

Before upgrading, check the version of your BIOS. If the version number is same as the one with you are upgrading, it means you have already the latest BIOS and it is not necessary to upgrade. The version number of this BIOS is 3.06 Revision A.

Problem after updating asus bios


The first thing I would try is to clear CMOS. Either set the jumper on the motherboard to do this, or even remove the battery, and wait half an hour or so. When installing a new CPU, and even RAM, you should always clear CMOS.

1600sc second CPU


Hi

Yes, some systems (newer PowerEdge Servers, generally 6/7th Generation and above) have onboard VRMs.

1600sc is a 6th gen PowerEdge (with Simple Computing). I can checked and be absolute certain from within Dell. I'm on VAC until Saturday.

In the meantime, check the PRC model and revision and ensure that they match. Given that a single PRC POST/Boots, try upgrading (if not already) the system BIOS to latest revision.

If the PRC model/revision does match and you have the latest BIOS version, also if the VRMs are not needed, then from the Troubleshooting you have already done, we may conclude that the PRC 2 slot is faulty.

I will confirm the VRM query on Saturday.

Biostar P4M900-M7 SE BIOS ROM Checksum Error


The bios upgrade procedure stopped at half , leaving the bios corrupted. The computer now cannot do a regular boot procedure, this is the reason why it cannot recognise some device. If you are still able to boot from floppy, you can restart bios upgrade procedure from floppy. Just download floppy version upgrade and re do setup. Even if you do not find latest bios version, just download a floppy upgrade that is working, so that you can restart your machine regularly , and then do the update to latest version.
If you are not able to complete the bios setup, the only way to fix your motherboard will be flashing the CMOS chipset with a chip programmer device that will reinstall bios straight into cmos chipset.
You can have this done at the service point, in this case consider also replacing your motherboard.

CPU Upgrade


Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1274_3734^11672,00.html), means that in order to display the actual speed of your Athlon XP 3000+ you have to set your board 166mhz to 200mhz jumper setting or in CMOS utility overclocking option. and also just to inform you that your motherboard is in Overclocked condition when set, because it only supports processors up to 333mhz FSB (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboard/soltek-sl75frv/)

BIOS DISPLAYING INCORRECT CPU SPEED


Hi, I have to agree "...that the motherboard's bios doesn't recognize the processor and that I should upgrade the bios...". Though I think that this is only a display issue and not necessarily true CPU speed. You can check if the correct CPU is displayed inside Windows by right click on My Computer and details would be shown in the System Properties. To upgrade the BIOS: 1. Determine/log your current BIOS and its date by pressing Pause on initial boot when motherboard details are shown; 2. Continue booting by pressing escape and run your Windows normally. Go to the website of your motherboard manufacturer and verify if they have an updated BIOS (compare date of release). If an updated BIOS is available, download. Likewise download the flashing utility. Further instructions are also available on a step by step procedure. Some newer mb versions/models have a Window based update feature. Check if you have such. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
