Question about Sony VAIO PCV-RX460 PC Desktop

1 Answer

This machine was running a 1.2 processor which I now know is the fastest processor the mobo will support. However, and before I knew this, I placed a 1.53 processor (AX1800DMT3C) in the slot and the bios screen came up. I didn’t think anything of it and thought I may have set something on my keyboard to bring it up. So I unplugged it and placed the old processor back in, Now I get NOTHING. No video, No bios screen, No beeb. Even when I take the memory out...no beeb. Unplugged everything and did a bois clear took the battery out. Unplugged everything and took out all boards in PCI slots. HELP!

The original CPU was 1200 Mhz, namely 12 times the 100 Mhz "clocking" supplied by the motherboard.
The new CPU is 1.53 Mhz, namely 11.5 times a 133 Mhz clocking, if the motherboard can supply that rate of clocking.

If your motherboard can only supply 100 Mhz clocking,
then the new CPU would run at 1150 Mhz (namely its 11.5 multiplier over the 100 Mhz clocking), i.e., slower than the original CPU.

Can you try the 1.2 processor in some other motherboard?
It's possible that you "killed" it, when you removed it,
or after you removed it, by giving it a static-electricity burst.

Do you have another processor that you can try in your motherboard?

What happens if you put the 1.53 processor into the motherboard?
Does it POST (Power On Self Test) ?

M2NPV-VM - Fastest Processor?


If ASUS says that is the fastest that will work on the board, then they should know. Incidentally processors don't run at 95 volts although some run at a power consumption of 95 watts. Besides there is not a faster AM2 CPU than the one you mention.

Looking for a compatible processor for this mobo


It is impossible to fry a motherboard by using the wrong processor, the board simply won't post. You can use a chart at the ECS website, your motherboard is a Socket A type. Looks like the fastest processor that they have tested is a Athlon XP 3000+.

Dear Sir,

Well that depends on which motherboard you have.. Go for the fastest processor your mobo can support (Check the mobo's documentation) & that one which fits your pocket..Hahaha...

Fastest CPU available for the K7N2G?


Look for socket A processors and ignore the XXXX+ and focus on the XXXXMHz rating (the MoBo's manufacturer's support site will give you the max processor your Board will handle). Since you mention that your MoBo is 4 to 5 years old, you'll probably better serve yourself to replace the MoBo and processor (you'll be able to upgrade to a much better/faster processor by upgrading both, and shouldn't cost that much more), and probably be happier with the result. You may want/need to upgrade your Power supply while you are at it too.
