Hello densola,

Do you want to keep your current motherboard? If that is the case, then you'll need to...

Check w/ the motherboard manufacturer for documentation on that board. This will give you the maximum specs (RAM and CPU) that the motherboard will support.

As for changing the BIOS, that's a whole other matter. The BIOS is written to firmware that resides in an IC that is soldered onto the motherboard. You can, however, check w/ the manufacturer to see what their latest BIOS update is. In fact, you'll likely need the latest BIOS update in order to support the hardware changes.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

Thank you
BJ

    If you don't know what motherboard you have (and the system is still bootable), you can run a utility called Belarc Advisor on it.



    Belarc Advisor is a great (free) little PC audit utility that will identify nearly all of your hardware, software, security updates, etc. You can find it HERE on Belarc's web site.

Can the cpu be upgraded to BX80526C1000256! If yes what modifications need to be made? Motherboard is EliteGroup P6STP-FL


Hello!

If you want upgrade you CPU, you must first know, specification of motherboard.
If the motherboard can´t see a new CPU, more exactly bios, you can try only one upgrade bios.
I give you a link for a manual and upgrade bios.

When you upgrade bios, try new CPU, if bios again don´t see a CPU, you can´t do anything about that.

Overclocking


Overclocking is set from the BIOS configuration. Not all BIOS allows overclocking, it may need a BIOS upgrade.
Check the ASUS WEB site for your model motherboard.
Overclocking the CPU (ie running at a higher clock speed) and increasing Frontside bus speed will give better performance BUT there is a downside too, if you overclock too high you could overheat the CPU and it could fail.

I am tryin to upgrade my processor on my 4000783 gateway motherboard need to change my fsb speed and dont know how


You cannot change your fsb. You need to upgrade to a cpu with a fsb speed that your board can support. Once you install the new cpu your bios will set the fsb to the higher setting of your new cpu if your board supports it. If you have your board specs it will tell you something like supports fsb 1066/800. That would mean you could upgrade to a supported 1066 fsb cpu. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Processor upgrade from 1.6 to 2.4


Hi zmoonz,
you must be missing something. Please go over this Intel link:
http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d850mv/sb/CS-009910.htm
Double check your board revision. Instruction / location for this is on the site above. Even though you have the correct revision no# the Pent 4, 2.4GHz CPU can only run with the correct revision (AA numbers) listed.
There are no jumpers on the Intel D850MV MB to help increase the CPU speed nor bios menu to help. Enter the bios. Open Main. This bios does not allow any CPU options.

Which frequency of processor for QDI motherboard BrillianX-1S with BIOS 4.51 PG


hey there.

If you are planning to upgrade the processor with the latest one then it is not possible without upgrading your motherboard.

Because as per all the bus and system configuration requirement with ur CPU you must give the recommended bus speed, bus lines, Address lines, Ram supportive slot, and RAM Frequency.

Your motherboard must suuport all those requirement if you are upgrading ur Processor.

You are right that ur motherboard can only work with PIII CPU.

Upgrade ur motherboard with atleast of 845,945G Chipset to support up to core2 Duo Processor in Intel. OR with A8V-VM and above in Asus Motherboard.

(Gimme your acknowledge by rating me)

Problem with upgrading processor


Sounds like the processor you're trying to upgrade to isn't the same frequency. The processor, motherboard, and memory have a matched frequency. For example; a motherboard with a frequency of say PC4200 will only accept a processor and memory of a PC4200 frequency. If you try to use PC5300 memory it basically won't do anything, blank screen, or maybe a beep. The same if you tried to use a processor with PC5300 on the PC4200 board. The best way to find the frequency rating is to look on the memory. They class the memory by frequency, but rarely ever list the frequency for the board or processor. Research the new processor to find out the memory class and then see if it matches the memory in your machine. If it doesn't then the processor won't work. If it does, then new processor may not be compatible, and that means more research.

I have a 6gb HD with my os anything bigger it wont work??


You need to go to your BIOS and check if your BIOS recognizes your drive. You might need to upgrade your BIOS with the latest firmware. You've been using 6GB drive, so I suspect you have older system and your new drive with higher capacity might not work on your system. Another possibility is you need to run HD installation utility that usually comes with the drive.

Sy-7vem soyo cpu upgrade


Most of the new boards will automatically detect the cpu speed. If possible set the bios to auto detect. Otherwise go to Soyo website and check the manual

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.
