I replaced a 1.6GHz processor with a 2.4 GHz processor & whenever i boot the PC it desplays the message "processor not installed please upgrade your system bios", it then goes on to boot normally but...


Go to www.asus.com.tw and search for the newest BIOS upgrade for you motherboard. Full instructions will be available on the website.

It sounds as if your motherboard will support the CPU however the BIOS software you are running doenst know if the newer CPU. A BIOS flash upgrade should solve the problem.

I want upgrade my CPU from p4 520 to p4 660(2M L2 cache) on dimension 4700. I want to know if that will work on my pc. Right now i am operating on bios A05,and i want to know if i have to upgrade to bios...


For best results, you should run the Dell System Analyzer on your computer:
http://accessories.us.dell.com/sna/DellPartsFamily.aspx?c=us&l=en&cs=19&s=dhs&~ck=anavml&dgc=SM&cid=54281&lid=1472034

Updating the BIOS, while not difficult, is not usually recommended unless it will solve a problem. The reason for that is you must follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer exactly or you could render your computer useless.
If the Dell System Analyzer determines that you can upgrade to a P4 660, then go ahead and replace the P4 520. If the P4 660 doesn't work, then the best approach would be to re-install the P4 520, make sure the computer works, then update the BIOS after carefully reading and understanding all the instructions provided by Dell.

Trying to upgrade cpu.


Here's a direct link to the service manual of the NetVista 8303-21A:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/netvista_pdf/24p2969.pdf

On page 13 of this manual:
Microprocessor (varies by model type): Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with 256 KB or 512 KB of internal L2 cache memory and Intel NetBurst™ micro-architecture.

It seems that the computer's motherboard does not support Intel P4 processors with more than 512 KB of internal L2 cache. That's why your P4 2.8GHz/1M/533 Prescott processor did not work.
You will have to either buy another processor with 512 KB L2 cache, or replace your motherboard with one which supports the new processor.
