    I tried the swapping of the PSU & It still does the same thing . I'm at th troubleshooting stage of theinstallation, I 1st'lly dissasembled the CD-Roms & re-configured the Jumpers For SLAVE & MASTER, making the Pioneer DVR111eb Drive The Master, & the Sonique 52X Cd-Rom Drive The Slave, w/ Round Cable, 2nd'ly, Took jumpers & changed to Slave, the MAXTOR 30Gb IDE Drive, 3rd'ly The WD 400- 40Gb HDD & Made that Master, 4th'ly, took out the ATi 128Mb RAEDEON AGP Video card, And The D-Link Air Plus G Wireless adapter card,, checked the Round Cables for wear, they were new, so nothing there, checked the Floppy Disk drive, & Cables. then checked the Power supply cables, nothing was wrong. I hope that this new Mother Board & Chip are safe as When I took off the Fan & Heat Sink, every thing looked Normal, but t5o make sure, I took out the CPU (Carefully) checked It & put the Thermal Grease Back On the CPU Surface & put the Heat sink & Fan Back In, & I then took the CMOS Battery Out ( Old Skool trick Q!) waited a 1/2 hour (got me a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich & some Cranberry Juice) and put it back in & went to the CMOS Jumper & shorted the 1 & 2 pin, (just to make sure) and then put it back to Default (2&3 Pin shorted), Then Put In The Power Supply Cord & Pressed the On Button & again, the only thing that ahppen was the Optical Drives kept on Coming On & off,.. I really, really need some GURU help for this insane Install everything Is In Good Condition & the Power Supply was Changed From 350 Watts To A Nice CLever Power 450 Watts PSU. & Now It does the same with everything Installed & Also when It is Minimal, I hope somebody that KNOWS this Board submits a Solution. Quick Fast & In A Hurry.
    Thank again,...L.STERiO & that's My picture as I'm angry ar the ORACLE suggests. Thanks For the Help.But THAT WASN'T IT !

    HA ! Well as much as I tried everything Rafique, and other GURU's have taught and told me, I went to the Computer Show out here & Purchased a OEM P4- 3.0 Ghz. ,800FSB,1 gig L2Cache,CPU, as well as 2-Gigs SUPER TALENT DDR400 RAM 2X1024, and a 7in1 Card reader. installed all and put back all the other components I took out, and Voila ! It posted and accepted the NEW XP PRO Ultimate Black edition with all the Service Packs & Updates already included, as well as a Legitimate Key Code that passed the Win GAN. and Alls well in the computer world, so I deduced that the problem was in the CPU. it was not a good one, and just for memory sake, the DDR memory was swapped as well, now on to my next headache!
    I'll post that as soon as I put all the bells and whistles On this FOXCONN Machine. THANKS FOR THe Help FIXYA!

I suspect Mother or Ram may have been failed try changing Power supply. If not Try on other mother board.

    Reset all jumper to original condition. Connect only CPU,VGA, Ram( Only One) and ofcourse powersupply to mother board outside casing. Start by start switch. See Wheather system starts. If starts connect only HDD. and see wheather it starts. Now if working. Connect Optical drive and boot.

    Best Regards

Specs on this cpu process

MicroStar International (Inc) Support > 865PE Neo2-P Platinum Edition (MSI MS-6728) Main Support page,

Click on Specification
(Overview / Specification / Download / Support / etc)

CPU (Processor) Support;

1) Intel Pentium 4 processors that have;

A) Use a Socket 478 processor socket,

B) Northwood Core, or Prescott Core

C) Front Side Bus (FSB) of 400MegaHertz (400MHz) for Intel Pentium 4 processors that are based on the Northwood Core.

D) FSB support of either 533MHz, or 800MHz, for Intel Pentium 4 processors based on the Prescott Core.

Processors that have an 800MHz FSB can be used, that have UP TO a 3.6GHz frequency rate. ('Speed')
Indication that higher 'speeds' can be supported. (Overclocking?)

Now let's look at Intel Pentium 4 processors, that are based on the Northwood Core, and fit a Socket 478 processor socket,

(Front Side Bus = FSB
The M/Ts listing means MegaTransfers per Second.
Believed to be a more accurate method of stating the FSB, than MHz.

Mega = 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second. Was named after a man with the last name Hertz.
Example; 400MHz = 400 Million Cycles per Second )

Intel Pentium 4 processors based on the Prescott Core, and utilizing the Socket 478 processor socket,

sSpec Number will be on the processor, as well as the Part Number.

Scroll down for photos.

CPU support can be attested to looking at the specs for the motherboard chipset, on your motherboard.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 865PE chipset.
Intel 82865PE northbridge chip, and an Intel ICH5 southbridge chip.

Scroll down to 865PE in the left column.

The part number on the Intel ICH5 southbridge chip, is Intel 82801EB,

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

HIGH-speed graphics is the AGP technology, or PCI Express technology.

Using a graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics,

The Slower capabilities of a computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

If this is a question of what CPU is on your motherboard at present, and the motherboard is in a working computer, suggest use the free tiny program CPU-Z from,

Need to know how to download, install, and use CPU-Z, post back in a Comment.

Hello you can download a manual from here:

But BE CAREFULL when you change the cpu.
And remember to add some cooling paste.

Here is some info about the cpu:

You will get better performance with a new mainboard/cpu
as this cpu only has one core.

Good luck

I have 1.5mhz processor & i want to update my processor, so how many mhz it can support??

You aren't just looking at the Ghz of the processor.. you have to consider a lot of things. Thank you for putting the make and model of the board. That helps a lot. Looked around for you and I have found that a good processor for that board should be a Intel Pentium 4 2.8ghz 800mhz 478pin 1mb Prescott Cpu . That should be enough to cap off that board. You will ant to look into
    PNY 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Desktop Memory Model MD2048KD1-400-V2 if you need more memory.
    Also. I'm not positive that processor linked will have a heat sink. it SHOULD. My personal preference is to go ahead and get a nice after-market heatsink.TR2TT TR2-M12 80mm Ball CPU Cooler
      is a nice, inexpensive one with copper base and fins. (copper is incredibly thermal conductive.) Above all don't forget to buy some thermal paste. Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound - OEM is some good stuff.

        I have a mainboard of model D845GVAD2------------------------AAC18931-104. It has already intall the Intel celeron processor of 1.8GHz. Now I want to upgrade my processor. So what high frequency processor...

        The Intel® Desktop Board D845GVAD2 supports a single Pentium® 4 processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz or 533 MHz, or a single Celeron® processor with a system bus frequency of 400 MHz.

        So you can install upto 3.06 GHz 533 MHz(cache memory) processor and also update the ram 2 GB 400 mhz.
        Dont install Prescott processor.
        Hope it will help you.

        Driver for prescott 533

        I think you're a little confused LUNISOZZI. Allow me to explain.
        The term Prescott is a type of CPU. 533 is the (FSB), bus speed that the CPU can run at. There is no driver needed for the Intel Pent 4 Prescott 533 CPU. When updating windows there may be a revision update for the Pent 4 Prescott 533 CPU listed in windows update to the left under hardware. If you're CPU is not beeing seen by windows correctly than check windows update. If you're CPU is not working in on the Asus board, than remove the CPU & check the connecting pins on the CPU. One or more may be bent or broken. CPU may not be completely seated. Thermal grease was not added or too little added between the CPU & heat sink assembly.
        Why don't you explain what it is that the CPU is or is not doing?
        What is the motherboard not seeing? or windows ia not doing?
        I can find a solution if you can explain.
