Question about Shuttle AV42 Motherboard

Problem with upgrading processor

I currently have a Intel Celeron 2.0Ghz SL68F processor in the system, and tried to upgrade to a Intel P4 2.8Ghz SL6PF processor, but all I got was a beep and a blank screen. I’m wondering if it might be the bios (Last Sys Bios Upgrade 11/22/02, AwardBios 6.00PG), unfortunately the company doesn’t have free updates now. So is there anything else I can do? Otherwise I’ll buy a new motherboard.

    The Motherboard is a Shuttle AV42 P4X333

    I'm running a system with Celeron 2.0ghz, 1GB PC3200, 120GB HD, etc FSB is 400/533 so everything is in sync, and can be upgraded to the P4 2.8ghz, i still think it is the bios, that is 6yrs old roughly.

CPU upgrade questions and answers. Issue: CPU upgrade questions and answers
Answers:
Below is a listing of CPU questions and answers to those questions. These questions have been sorted by the number of times they have been asked or searched for.
Can I upgrade my computer processor?
Because of the variety of computer motherboards / specifications / OEM modifications, we do not specify to users if they are capable of upgrading to a higher processor. To obtain this information please contact the computer or motherboard manufacturer or refer to the computer documentation.
When contacting your computer manufacturer concerning a CPU upgrade, ask for the below information that will help you correctly install your CPU:

  1. What is the maximum speed I can put into my computer?
  2. Do I need to switch any jumpers or dip switches when adding the new CPU, if so, which ones?
  3. Do I need any additional hardware when upgrading the CPU such as a heat sink / interysoser?
Can I use an AMD / Cyrix in an Intel board or Intel processor with AMD board?
Again, this is all dependent upon the computer and/or motherboard manufacturer. Please contact the computer or motherboard manufacturer or refer to the computer documentation.
Can I upgrade to a processor utilizing MMX?
Generally, if the computer supports or has the capability of modifying the voltage, a computer with Non-MMX can be upgraded to a processor with MMX. However, because of the variety of possibilities, it is recommended that you contact the computer or motherboard manufacturer to determine if this is possible or not.
Why do I not notice a difference in speed when upgrading my CPU?
Depending upon what CPU chip you have installed in the computer determines how much speed the computer will increase. For example, if you just upgrade a 486DX to a 486DX2 you will not notice much speed increase. Even in a 486DX4 you will really not notice much more of a change in speed. Also, if you are putting a Pentium chip in a 486 board you will also not get the speed of a Pentium computer because you do have a Pentium board.
Generally, when upgrading the CPU, there will not be a dramatic speed increase in all programs. However, you should notice a small increase in program load time and or performance of a program. Can I use a Slot A in a Slot 1 or a Slot 1 in a Slot A? The Slot 1 processors and specification is a registered trademark of Intel, and because of this, AMD could not design a compatible slot. Therefore, AMD created the Slot A that looks similar to Intel's Slot 1 but are not compatible. Therefore, a Slot 1 processor will not work in a Slot A motherboard and a Slot A will not work in a Slot 1. Good Luck , Hope this helps ya out/Please dont for get to Vote. `

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.

CPU upgrade for Compaq SR1220NX Desktop Computer


Hi
The specs for this machine state that it is a motherboard with
"Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors
Supports Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 2.8 GHz
Supports Intel Celeron processor up to 3.06 GHz (Prescott based Celeron with 533MHz FSB)"
In other words, any CPU that is not socket 478 ( a fairly old socket now) will not even fit on the board. You do not mention your current CPU so you need to compare it with the spec above to see if you can improve it. It is an old machine/motherboard, so your money might be better going towards a motherboard or system box upgrade.
Cheers

I need to upgrade my processor Intel Celeron CPU 2.0 Ghz L2 cache memory 128 kb System bus 400 mhz. What do you recommend.? Thanks


Find out the type of motherboard installed in your system and that will determine your upgrade possibilities.
Check your manual or if competent enough open the case and should be a label on the motherboard telling you what type. Get the number and google for answer

I want to upgrade my hpdv1000 pentium M processor whats the maximum upgrade allowed for this? i have upgraded it to 2gb ram from 512mb and 250gb hd from 60gb and its doin fine.


You should be able to upgrade the CPU, since it seems that the DV1000's motherboard uses a socket CPU design. But, obviously, HP would rather have you choose the CPU that you want from the beginning and stick with it.
The first thing to do is to check HP website to see what other configurations were/are sold for your model. If they sell it with faster CPUs then you can upgrade to one of them...

PLEASE NOTE:
In order for a particular processor to be compatible with a particular laptop:
(1) the processor must be physically compatible with the laptop socket, in your case I thing you have a Soket 479 processor
(2) the laptop chipset must support the processor.
(3) the chipset front side bus speed must match the processor front side bus speed, in your case 400Mhz.
(4) the laptop BIOS must support the processor.

So I listed here processors with FSB at 400Mhz, I gues that DV1000 as a 855GM Motherboard that supports only 400Mhz with Socket 479

Pentium M

Pentium M 1.6 1600 1024 400
Pentium M 1.7 1700 1024 400

Dothan
Pentium M 710 1400 2048 400
Pentium M 715 1500 2048 400
Pentium M 725 1600 2048 400
Pentium M 735 1700 2048 400
Pentium M 745 1800 2048 400
Pentium M 755 2000 2048 400
Pentium M 765 2100 2048 400

Celeron M

Banias-512
Celeron M 310 1200 512 400
Celeron M 320 1300 512 400
Celeron M 330 1400 512 400
Celeron M 340 1500 512 400

Dothan-512
Celeron 205 1200 512 400

Dothan-1024
Celeron M 350 1300 1024 400
Celeron M 360 1400 1024 400
Celeron M 370 1500 1024 400
Celeron M 380 1600 1024 400
Celeron M 390 1700 1024 400

Re aspire 7104 being upgraded to duo core processor


No it cant be updated

Your acer aspire is based on the 910GML chipset

The Mobile Intel® 910GML Express chipset is optimized for the Intel® Celeron® M processor.

Here you can compare the 910gml chipset and 945 which is used by the core 2 duo.

http://compare.intel.com/pcc/showchart.aspx?mmID=22210,7419&familyID=7&culture=en-US

As you can see on the page there are key difrences between the chipsets other runs on ddr2, yours on ddr. the FSB support is 400 on yours and 533 / 667 on the 945.

also you can see the supported processor familys right there.

you can look for a
Intel® Celeron® M processor,
Intel® Celeron® M processor Ultra Low Voltage (ULV)

Upgrade


As your processor is very old, to buy an upgrade would be more expensive than buying a new computer. There are not many of the socket 370 type processors around, if at all. Your motherboard will not drive any of the newer processors.
