I have the d845gebv2 motherboard. It came with the 1.7 pentium 4 processor which is a 400bus. i have recently purchased a pentium 4 2.8 and 3.06 processors which are 533 bus. i do i change the bus speed in the bios. both of these processors are on the supported processor list from intel. i have recently upgraded the bios to the most up to date p17. but when i move the jumper on the board to get the maintenance menu on the motherboard it comes up in the bios but the only thing it lets me change it the clear password and clear bis or something like that. when i put both of those processors in the machine turns on but no screen i put the 1.7 back in everything works fine, i dont think this is an autodetect motherboard so i need to know how to change the bus speed from 400 to 533. thanks

if the asrock web site says 2gig is the max then that is it. the only other thing to check on their web site is the bios version. see what version is your bios and if a bios upgrade can help. otherwise the only thing to do is to replace the board if you want higher processor speed.
No, u can't. ur motherboard is designed for pentium III processors with FSB -133 MHz, Socket-370 type. Pentium 4 processors have 400 MHz FSB, 423 Socket at least. But yes for memory, u can upgrade it to 512 MB.
well...ASUS P4S533MX- Intel socket 478 allow maximum processor upgrade from 3.2 GHz upto to 4.2 GHz. for upgrade the Radeon 9250, 128 Mb DDR 64-bit ....whole moherboard along with new processor has to be replaced. an expensive deal.. better to buy new motherboard+compatible processor of ur choicce
If you want to upgrade you unit be sure that the motherboard socket are totally fix with the processor. The compatibility is important because if it is not compatible the motherboard can not support the 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.
More important is the question of what processors can your motherboard handle. Certain motherboards accept certain sockets and speeds of processor, so you can choose from that to decide what you want to upgrade it with.
Yikes, a Pentium II?? Unfortunately it will definately be more economical to just replace the whole motherboard, or the whole computer! This motherboard will only support a range of P2 processors, an upgrade will cost several hundred dollars, close to the price of a brand new computer with a P4 in it.
