New Motherboard Problem Pleasee help

MB: GA-P35-DS3L(rev.20) BIOS: The version that came with MB
CPU Brand: Intel Core 2 Quad 9300 2.5GHz Model #: BX80580Q9300
VGA Brand: NVIDIA 8800GTS
Operating System: Vista 32-bit
Memory Brand: G.Skill 4GB DD2-1066 Dual Channelled
Power Supply: Rosewill 600W

I recently built this new computer and installed Windows XP on it for a few days. Every thing worked perfectly untill I decided to upgrade to Windows Vista Ultimate x86 32-bit which worked fine for the first 2 boots, and then BIOS started giving me problems.

Started off with trying to restore BIOS information from harddrive halfway through the PC would shut off and reattempt the same procedure. For some odd reason it would only boot Windows if I press Delete Key right when i start my computer. (note: By the time this happened, I couldn't get into the BIOS Configuration Screen. Del key only bypassed problem).

In Vista, I swapped my usual USB keyboard for my debugging purple plug keyboard and did some vista updates, finally restarted my computer. Tried the usual del key trick and didn't work, figures it was USB and probably wasn't registered in the plug in play. The computer went through the screen of trying to restore BIOS information from harddrive shutting off and repeat, a few times. Finally the PC wouldn't boot that screen and del key doesnt do the trick anymore.

When I turn on the computer the fans, harddrive, dvd drive all turns on but the BIOS doesn't load. After turning on PC everything is running, lasts for about 5 seconds, then turns off and retries the process. I tried to reset the CMOS, but didn't make a difference.

Please help me out. Is my MB damaged? Is this MB not compatible with Windows Vista? XP worked how did Vista screw up my BIOS? Is there anyway or things i can do to try to revive my new PC or do I have to return the MoBo? or does the problem lie with another piece of my hardware such as CPU?

Thanks in advance.

Needupgrading my cpu


ztz198,

On the top of every Intel processor is the sSpec Number, and the part number.

Intel Core2 Quad, that operates at a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 2.66GigaHertz,.........hmmm,

Gateway Support indicates if the option is a Core2 Quad core, it will use Up To a 1333MegaHertz, Front Side Bus frequency rate, ('Speed'),

[1333MHz FSB]

http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2009/gateway/dx/dx4822/DX4822sp2.shtml

That 'narrows' it down to about 6 different processors.

Starting with the Yorkfield-6M Core technology, based on the 45NanoMeter architecture. (45nm),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#.22Yorkfield-6M.22_.2845_nm.29

1) Core2 Quad Q8400
2) Core2 Quad Q8400S
3) Core2 Quad Q9400
4) Core2 Quad Q9400S

Then on to the Yorkfield Core technology, based on the 45nm architecture,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

5) Core2 Quad Q9450
6) Core2 Quad Q9450S

The maximum frequency rate of 2.66GHz, is actually a low estimate. It is a little higher, and rounded off to 2.67GHz.

BIOS Setup might state 2.66GHz, but a better program like CPU-Z, IMHO; will state 2.67GHz. A more realistic figure.

Does it REALLY matter? Yes, and No.

This way when you get into a conversation, with fellow minded computer geeks, you will stand out as one who knows; what hardware components he/she is using.

Also helps you determine what voltage range is being used.
What Instruction Sets are being used.
What technology is being used, and use it to know if the upgrade CPU will indeed work.
Also whether a BIOS upgrade is needed.

I'm guessing it is the Intel Core2 Quad Q8400.

How?

I cheated, lol!,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883113110

Intel Core2 Quad Extreme at a maximum frequency rate of 2.93GHz?
That would be the Intel Core2 Quad Extreme QX6300,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

Based on the Kentsfield XE technology, and 65nm architecture.
Uses a 1066MHz FSB.

Motherboard chipset is the Intel G43,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

(Scroll down. Is not in 'alphabetical order'. It is past the P45, and G41 )

Yep. Should work.

Makes me wonder though, about how you addressed the Thermal Paste; situation.

The old Thermal Paste MUST be THOROUGHLY cleaned off, and fresh, new Thermal Paste PROPERLY applied.
CANNOT reuse old Thermal Paste.

CANNOT reuse a Thermal Pad, IF used.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

Do I also assume the inside of the computer case is spotlessly clean, to include the Heatsink sitting on the CPU; and the cooling fan for it?

Heatsink was sit on CPU flat?
Cannot be even a little tilted.

For this reason I remove the motherboard, and install Heatsink.
Then I can hold the motherboard at eye level, and look across.

If a tiny crack of light shows on one side edge, of the Heatsink; then the Heatsink is NOT sitting flat.

This = No.

Four screws with springs on them, hold the Heatsink to CPU, Joe?
Yes. I know. This is so you cannot over-tighten the Heatsink to CPU.

You CAN however keep tightening, until the motherboard breaks, though. (Jus sayin')

However, if the screws are not tightened in a crisscross fashion, and tightened in incremental stages; the Heatsink may not be sitting flat.

Will await reply before going further. Post back in a Comment.

yes you can upgrade to a quad, as long as its an LGA 775 socket processor, and yes the slower memory will bog down your others, you motherboard will operate the ram at the slowest speeds set in the memory bank

What do you need to look for in the motherboard specifications?

I suggest you start by going to HP.com/Support,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

In the box to the right of -> product search: <- type your model name and model number.
Example: Pavilion 7955

This will take you to the main page for your computer. See if -> Product Specifications <- is listed.
Click on that. Now see if -> Motherboard Specifications <- is listed. Click on that.

Look to see what processor socket you have, what Northbridge chipset you have, and what the Maximum Total Amount of ram memory is for the motherboard.

1.Processor: Intel Quad Core Q9650
Your motherboard has to have the LGA 775 processor socket. Also know as Socket T.
A.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T
This processor socket has the pins in it, and the processor has the socket holes. The older Socket 478, had the socket holes, while the processor had the pins.

You need a Northbridge chip that will support the Q9650.
IF, your motherboard has an LGA 775 processor socket, I'm willing to bet your Northbridge chip is an Intel one.
This is a list of Intel chipsets. I have saved the link, to come up on Intel chipsets, that are for the Intel Core2. Match your HP motherboard's, Northbridge chipset, up with the one's listed on this chart. Look down the left column under the heading -> Chipset. After you find your chipset name, look across to the right. See if this chipset supports -> Core 2 Quad.

Example: The 945GC chipset supports Pentium 4, Pentium D, Celeron, Core 2 Duo, and the Intel Atom processor. Does not support Core 2 Quad.
The P965 supports (Uses) Core 2 Duo, and Core 2 Quad.

You may find that a BIOS Upgrade is needed also.

Another way to find out your motherboard information, is to download (Free) CPU-Z from CPUID.com,
Info on Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z
Homepage:
http://www.cpuid.com/cpuz.php

After you have downloaded this tiny, little program, and it is open, click on the Mainboard tab.
This shows a brief video on using CPU-Z,

Will Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300, 2.50 GHz processor work on asus p5n73-am motherboard..is it compatible, will the motherboard crash or will the processor overheat. I am looking to change my current processor...


Motherboard info
Yes it'll work. Worst case scenario is that you will need to do a bios update. Overheat should not be a problem if you are using the intel reference cooler wich is provided with the cpu.

Overclock an Intel E6300 on a GA-8I945GZME-RH motherboard


You need to check your BIOS. If you can overclock you will see a selection for CPU and speed in BIOS. If not there then your motherboard does not allow you to overclock your CPU.
