You're going to have to give us more information about what you are looking to do. If you are wanting to know how to add/remove your processor: If the heat-sink and fan are removed, there is a little clasp or lever you have to undo/push down and up to unlatch the processor. After that, you are going to VERY CAREFULLY remove the processor from the slot. If you need to add the processor, place the processor down on the CPU seating with the lever/clasp undone. Make sure you line up the arrow on the corner of the CPU to the arrow on the motherboard. Press the clasp/lever down and latch it into place.

How I can incease CPU Freq from 408 MHz to 1008 MHz

It all depends on two things;

1) That you can go into BIOS Setup, and change parameters.

Parameters such as;

A) The Front Side Bus speed. (FSB), or
B) The Voltage for the CPU (Processor), or
C) The Multiplier for the CPU (Processor)

Or there may be a Soft CPU option available for the above, in BIOS Setup.

Be aware that overclocking the Processor will also step up the FSB. Ram memory, and expansion slot devices, will cease to work if the FSB is too high. (Front Side Bus,

408MegaHertz to 1008MegaHertz?

That's a big jump. I do not think that processor in this technology age, is capable of overclocking this far. Plus IF it does, will not continue.

Heat will be a Big issue for one.
The pathways inside a processor are based on the nm architecture.
NanoMeter. 1 Billionth of a Meter.

[ Your processor was probably in the 250nm architecture technology. Today's processors are down to the 22nm architecture ]

With too much heat there is Electron Migration. The electrons jump off, or Migrate, from the circuit trace they are on, over to a wrong circuit trace.
Causes the processor to burn up.

Secondly there is also a limit on the performance of a Processor. Asking for almost 2 and a half times the factory setting, is asking for too much.

Plus the Processors are tested at the factory, and sent out. They only have to fall within a rather broad set of specifications, and can be considered okay for the consumer, or computer manufacturer.

The Processor you have may have been on the Bottom of the test range. Even if you have knowledge, of someone else getting this kind of performance out of the same model, it may be that theirs was one of the ones, on the Top of the test range.

Overclocking is done in SMALL increments, THEN tested to see if the computer works fine, over a 24 hour period.


Change the Voltage?
Change in no more than a .2 Volt increment. Then the 24 hour test. Everything's OK? Move up .2 Volts. 24 hour test.

Remember, Ram Memory operates at approximately Half, of the Processor's FSB.
The expansion slots are a lot lower.

Change values (Parameters), such as Voltage for the CPU (Processor) for one, and you change everything.
Too much, Ram Memory, and anything in an expansion slot, will not work.

What Processor is it?
What motherboard name and model number? (Or what computer manufacturer and model number )

My cpu fan vibrates. help me

There might be lot of dust accumulated on fan and heat sink. Clean it and see.

If it still vibrates replace with an approved CPU fan.

Jul 23, 2011 | Intel CELERON 2.66Ghz CPU AND MOTHER BOARD...

2 Answers problem is my CPU's name Elitegroup GeForce 7050M-M, then if I use it between 15 to 25 minutes, my cpu's automatically shutdown. Please help me and reply me the best solution. I'm using...

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electic extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the central processing unit
try uninstalling a few unecessary programs also you might not have enough RAM random acess memory to check what is running when your computer is running scroll to the bottom of your screen toolbar right click select task manager applications and processes if you see something you dont need running select end now
to check how much ram you have click start right click on my computer select properties you will see all of your computers details
then you should defragment your hard drive click start all programs accessories system tools you should see the disk defragmenter
hope this will help you

Red light on and nothing works

first switch of the computer remove the side covers then switch on the computer and see whether the computer fan is spinning if spinning then remove the memory card from the memory slot clean it with a cloth insert them to the slot and switch on the computer if still not working remove the processor fan and clan the processor fan and the processor with a clean cloth and paste a thin layer of heat sink solvent on the processor and place the fan tightly on the processor if still not working change the processor which is suitable for the socket and see whether its working

My mother board is working some time 5-7 min and afte 5-7 min mother board is turn off and mother is turn on not turn on

1) Is the computer dirty inside?
When a Processor overheats it turns off. This is a built-in Fail Safe feature.
Keeps the Processor from burning up.

The Heatsink sitting on top of the Processor, and the Fan sitting on top of the Heatsink, keep the Processor within a thermal limit. (Temperature)
If they are dirty, the cooling capacity of these two components drops tremendously.

[ Typical construction of a Heatsink is a plate of metal that has tall, thin fins protruding from it.
The plate of metal absorbs heat from what ever object it is placed against. (In this case a Processor)

The tall, thin fins absorb heat from the plate, where they then radiate the heat away.
If a fan is used along with a Heatsink, the air flow from the fan draws heat away from the fins.
{Older computers did not use a fan along with the Heatsink.]

Typical example of a Heatsink/Fan combo,

Some computers do not have a Fan placed on top of the Heatsink.
A computer case fan in the front is used.
The fan pushes air through a plastic port, which covers the Heatsink.
(Think tunnel. Plastic port is a U shape)

Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, Observe Anti-Static Precautions.
Use a can of compressed air for computers, and clean the fins out of the Heatsink, and the fan's blades.

You may also find that using Q-tips to break the outside 'crust' will help.
The Q-tips are not used so much as to remove the dirt, dust, etc. But to break the outside surface so the can of air can remove it.

2) Thermal Paste: (Also referred to as Thermal Grease and Thermal Compound)

This is applied in-between the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink.
It MUST be there, and in a gooey state.

Thermal Paste is used to transfer heat from the top of a Processor's case, to the bottom of the Heatsink.

The top of a Processor's case, and the bottom of a Heatsink are not perfectly smooth.
A microscopic view would show small 'Pits, Hills and Valleys'.

When the two surfaces of the bottom of a Heatsink, and the top of a Processor's case meet, these imperfections create an Air Pocket.

Air is an Insulator. Not a Conductor.
It insulates the heat from transfering from the top of the Processor's case, to the bottom of the Heatsink.

Thermal Paste is a Conductor.
It conducts heat from the top of the Processor's case to the bottom of the Heatsink.

Thermal paste can dry up. When it is dry it looses its conducive properties.
Check the thermal paste.

You have to Properly clean the top of the Processor's case, and the bottom of the Heatsink.
There must be NO old thermal paste left.
Then new, fresh thermal paste is applied Properly.

Thermal Pad;
A cloth like material that looks like a thin pad. Used on some older computers to take the place of thermal paste.
These are Junk, should be removed, and thrown away.
Once you remove the Heatsink to look, you can't reuse a thermal pad anyway.

3) You may have a bad Power Supply.
Power Supply's have Electrolytic Capacitors inside them. They are used as Filters. Used in the Input stage, and Output stage of the Power Supply.

Electrolytic Capacitors can break down over time to an unusable state.

{Electrolytic Capacitors DO break down. The design engineer knows this. After a given time they break down to a 50 percent level. The design engineer takes this into effect, and uses capacitors that are 50 percent better than needed}

The Electrolytic Capacitors used are Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors.

For simplification, let me state that they have an outside case made of thin aluminum.
Shaped like a 'Coca-Cola' can.
Inside this case is Electrolytic Paste
When the paste breaks down it forms a gas. Hydrogen gas.

The gas expands, and pushes paste out. The paste oozes out. (Pushes the paste against seals of the case, and breaks the seals)

So much paste loss, and the capacitor operates at a reduced level.
Too much paste loss, and the capacitor fails.

A weak, or a few weak capacitors can produce a weak voltage power rail in the Power Supply.
When they work good, the Power Supply produces power as it should.
When they don't, the Power Supply does not produce enough voltage, and the Processor turns off.

4) Motherboard;

Electrolytic Capacitors again.
This time they are used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit.
Part of what the motherboard voltage regulator circuit does, is to regulate voltage to the Processor.

The Processor must have a Steady, 'Clean', supply of voltage.
A Processor has a VERY small tolerance range for voltage that it operates in.
To little, and it turns off.

Visual signs of capacitor failure,

Monitor not working But computer does?

this seems to be graphic probs there if ur using a graphic card chances it pck up if ur using on board best thing to do is buy a graphic card for ur comp and the processor is pretty easy really aslong as u have the right size processor ofr the board u will see a few clips on side off the heat sink fan plz make sure that when u take off the heat sink that ur processor doent come off at the same time it all seperates then make sure that u dont bend any of the pins for the processor or u will have probs with monitor aswell

GD8 motherboard

The GD8 mobo spec says that the bopard is only compatible with P4 and Celeron D processors so no you cant swap it! Generally the Athlon 1800+ is a better processor but it depends on the mobo, BIOS, RAM setup etc.

Not working


:-) It gud that you cleaned your system. But make sure all the things at place from where you picked up.

While turning ON system. Does it makes some whisle sound?

If it do so please check the RAM( a long chip equal to finger size.). remove it and make sure its properly IN on the slot. Same way check the Processor too. Dont not force to push. All the things are of correct size. If it is on right place it will go very easily.

Installed a new processor and now it wont work

Is that an upgraded processor? If it is, then somehow, it could be its configuration problem with the older processor on software side. Your previous installation of OS remember its past processor and reporting error.

You can try fresh installation. Just for the input.

Upgrade my processor

You can use either an Athlon, Duron, or Athlon XP processor, with a max front side bus speed of 266 MHz. This is slow compared to today's standards. Most of today's newer processors have front side bus speeds of more than 2 GHz, about 8 times faster.
