You motherboard is probably not compatible with this processor. The Intel 1333 fsb processors require a different voltage regulator than other core 2 duos. Try an updated board BIOS from the asus website. Next look for power supply issues. Make sure the 8 pin connector is connected to your motherboard, and that the PSU has enough amps to run all of your devices. Make sure your RAM is set at it's RATED Voltage and timings. Turn off spread spectrum. Reset the CMOS jumper. These processors will have thermal protection which makes the cpu underclock/volt itself when overheating. Make sure you heatsink has adequate thermal paste evenly distributed between the processor and heatsink. Good Luck

Sounds like a power supply problem to me. Make sure your 8 pin power line is connected to the motherboard, and also see if you have enough amps to run all of your devices. Next, make sure you have an updated BIOS from you boards manufacturer, because the motherboard might not support the new 1333 fsb processors from intel which will underclock themselves if overheated, so heat at defaults is not usually an issue. Next, make sure your RAM is set to it's rated timings and voltage. Try resetting your CMOS jumper. Good luck.

Yeah, i would say the same, Try cleaning oput any dust, make sure the Fan and Heat sink are adequet for that processor.

Intell is known for overheating issues, the only way they can stay ahead of AMD is to clock there CPU's really high, often they over heat, i have this issue with my job where i work on dells all day that have INTEL CPU's they overheat.


Go o a computer store and get a quality cooling fan and heatsinkl for the type of processor youhave. Get one with a higher RPM and a larger heatsink, make sure to use the CPU thermal Grean between the CPU and the heatsink to inssure even contact.

How is your cpu cooler? Sounds like it could be a heat issue. How long before it freezes? Will it actually boot through to the operating system or freeze on start up? If it runs for a while then freezes it sure could be overheating.

Is there a cpu upgrade for an hp pavilion 6835 with a motherboard 115561 cognac 20000731


The fastest Pentium 3 that will work in your board is a Intel Pentium III 1GHz chip. Here is a link to the specs:
http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-III/Intel-Pentium%20III%201000%20-%20RB80526PY001256%20%28BX80526F1000256%29.html

You could also get a Intel Celeron 1.1 GHz but it only has half the level 2 cache size so it's actually a bit slower than the Pentium III 1GHz chip.
Here's a link to celeron specs:

UpGrade


you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc

UPGRADING TO 2 GHZ


1. Check user documentation for supported CPUs for your system.
2. If 2.0GHz CPU is supported on your system, you don't need any additional software.
3. I would upgrade the BIOS firmware first. It might have an additional CPU support.
4. Read information from you old CPU. Exemple: 1.4GHz/256/400. 1.4GHz is a speed of your CPU. 256 is a 256k cache, and 400 is 400MHz BUS speed. In general you can boost speed to 2.0GHz or more and cache to 512k, just keep your BUS speed to 400
5. Post your system model or your motherboard model. That information would help in determining the maximum speed of the CPU for your system.

Good lick!

Overlocked my Intel Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz


You have to go into your bios and see what your front side bus and memmory speeds are. If you overclock you cpu, sometimes you need to underclock your memmory. Say step your memmory down to 333mhz and overclock your front side bus(fsb).
Normally your fsb is 200 and only increase it by mhz. Restart, go into windows. and see if it is stable.

I always use cpu-z and gpu-z to check all of my hardware settings. I use ati tool to overclock my x1950 and it is great. There really isnt any good cpu overclocking tools because its better to do it in the bios.

Do a specific search in google for your processor and overclocking.
