Question about ASUS VIA KT133A Chipset A7V133-C Motherboard
I have an old AMD clone with 750MHz processor that I "let" my wife use mainly for surfing and Skype-ing. Motherboard ASUS A7V Rev.1.02 KT133, VIA chipset (VT82C686A), Award BIOS. I have a old but new Duron 1.4GHz processor I bought a few years ago and I am now braving it trying to install it. Piece of cake -- NOT.
When I boot it up with the Duron it goes into some kind of alarm. Sounds like a European ambulance. I thought my research was sound and this chip was compatible, but perhaps my BIOS needs upgrading. If so, to what and more importantly, HOW? Can it be downloaded and installed?
What am I not doing right? Also, how important is a new application of thermal grease? What about the heatsink/fan? Is this chip significantly hotter than the 750MHz?
Thanks for your help!
Well older mother board cant handle a higher CPU processor, you have to make sure you have ALL the jumper properly set for the CPU, also the memory on the motherboard should be for that motherboard. try not to OC the motherboard as it will fry it.
Also check the motherboard for any Blown capacitor. for the MB to scream bloody murder something is definately wrong.
you could check the website of asus and look under ARCHIVE or DISCONTINUED motherboard. to find drivers and manuals for the motherboard you have unless you have them
also make sure the motherboard can actully take a higher processor.
Thermal grease is always good its help alot, just dont over do the grease applications. as ive seen pasta made out of thermal grease cpu's
