Question about Intel Pentium 3 , 450 MHz Pentium III (SL364) Boxed Processor

3 Answers

I accidentally changed my CPU clok frequency from 100 to 250 and now my computer won't boot?

Ok, I tried to 'overclock' my Intel Pentium III Processor like in PC Mag
a while back and now my computer will not boot. I changed the clock frequency instead of the clock speed. When I boot my computer it powers on and the CD drive hums for 2-3 secs and the computer dies down like it is in stand-by.
I have tried booting my Win XP cd to repair Windows XP to try that but my CD drive will not boot anything either. I also tried Fix it Utilities 6 boot cd but it wont boot either. Can someone please help me???

Ok I realize this is old and you may have given up by now or gotten it figured out, but I'm gonna try to help even with that being said, first of all I just recently had the same problem, this is a sure fire way to fix your issue,
step one, open up your computer so that you have access to the motherboard,
step two, find the system battery.
step three, near the battery there should be a jumper, this will be a little plastic piece with metal connectors inside it, it should be slid onto two pins out of three available, move it over one space meaning if its on the left and middle move it to the right pin and middle pin, the three pin pole should say cmos right by it, or clear cmos.
step four remove system battery, no need to worry this is just the memory for the cmos chip and it will revert it back to when the board was new, you can change the settings in your bios program back to what they were when it last worked,
step five, making sure that your power cord is not hooked up to the computer in the back, (no power to computer) press and release your power button a few times, (this will drain the capacitors stored power)
step six, walk away for about 20 minutes, just to make sure that clearing of cmos was a success,
step seven, replace cmos battery.
step eight, move jumper back to original possition.
step nine apply power to the computer and boot up should be operatioinal again, you can then go back into your bios setting and change as wanted, however I would only overclock a little at a time as boards will only handle so much overclocking before they will freeze up, i would not go more than 200 mine froze at 200 so you may not even want to go there, Hope this helps.......

    Don't know what your pc model is but to access the bios you have to hit one of the following keys when the pc is re-booting. Before it makes it to Windows. F1, F2, Del, F10. Like I said, depending on your model. Sometimes there is a message on the bottom of the screen when the pc is booting telling you what key to hit to enter setup.

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:

How to overclock Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140 1.6 GHz processor


The following link will tell you the very simple way to overclock this processor. Half way down the page you will find the header "OVERCLOCKING"

http://www.value-reviews.com/index.php?page=pentium-dual-core-e2140

"Since the architecture was designed for the 1066 MHz FSB, overclocking is as trivial as setting the FSB to 1066 MHz (266 MHz quad pumped).
...you instantly get a 2132 MHz CPU with little increase in temperature."

I have a amd semporn and accedently overclocked it


Next time you boot, go into your Bios and change the CPU settings back to normal. It's possible you did fry the processor but unless you set it back to normal you'll never know. Best of luck with your problem.

How to overclock a pentume 4 processor


Increasing of FSB (processor clock) from 10% up to 15%.
from 1700Mhz you can get 1850 Mhz.
from 2400 Mhz you can get 2640 Mhz
from 3000 Mhz you can get 3300 Mhz
but not all mater board allow this do.

Reviving the cpu


The boards I have seen were overclocked by changing the CPU speeds or the voltages going to the CPU. Change the setting back. When you get into the BIOS setup screen(A lot of them you get into by pressing the delete key when starting up) look for the "Default settings" After clicking on them,save the settings. Thsi wil bring you back to the  Safest board setting according to the board maker.

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

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.

OVERCLOCKING


The 800 MHz seems to be your system bus speed and not the CPU speed. They a related but no quite the same. Overclocking is usually defined as forcing something to operate at a higher speed than it was designed to. If you changed the 800 MHz to 1.6 GHz in your BIOS then yes it could be considered overclocking.

One thing I would like to mention is that when changing clock speeds in your BIOS, do it in small steps, if done in large steps it can cause system instability.
