CPU not support found !!

I put a new processor in, and everything worked fine. It suggested that I update the BIOS version. I updated to the latest and restarted, now when I start it says: "CPU not support found !! System will shut down after 15 seconds."

I figured it out! Only took me 5 hours :P. What I had to do was actually DOWNgrade my bios to 0804 instead of 1004. I don't know why, but it did not like that latest version.

You need to change settings in your bios for the type of cpu you changed to
Or reset your bios to default it could still be set up for old cpu

Four bios versions which do I flash?

F15q and F15o are BETA versions.
Meaning in actuality, they use the consumer as a guinea pig, and see what the results are. Then they might 'tweak it', and call it good.
Becomes an Alpha version then.

['Tweak it'.
Work the bugs out that have been found by the consumer]

My bad. Let me use the 'prose' they use,

"What is BETA?
BETA describes a new version that is reliable yet may not include all the features of the final product. During this phase we are previewing new features and gathering customer input to insure our product provides the best experience possible."

Moving on....

Next, the logical thought is; to download the Latest version.
The thinking is that the latest version has all the bugs worked out.

However this may be a fallacy for your particular motherboard.
The latest version may not work.
Makes you feel all warm, and fuzzy inside, huh? (NOT)

The procedure to use when updating BIOS, and using any version; is to make sure you keep a copy of the old one.
When upgrading, you will be asked if you wish to make a copy, of the old BIOS program.

YES, is the answer.

Something happens with the new version, you have the old version to revert back to; and at least be able to use your motherboard.
No BIOS? Might as well use the mobo for a Frisbee.

So,......looking at the different versions that you see, look at each one's date.

F5 is 03/28/2012. March 28, 2012
Indicates Enhanced overclocking capability.

What does F6 do, that came out April 26, 2012?
1) Improved Processor overclocking, using a processor based on the Sandy Bridge Core,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Bridge

2) Brings support for using an Intel Xeon processor.

Now look at the next version, F7.

All the improvements you see listed for each version, are culminated in the newest version,

F14.

That is, the newest version that has proved to be stable.
Supposedly the 'bugs' are worked out.

The other two versions F15o and F15q, again; are BETA versions.
Should ONLY be used by those who have a lot of experience, and know what to do if it fails.

So this leaves us with F14.
HOWEVER again, make SURE you make a copy of the old BIOS version.
When updating you will be asked.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(ALSO, if your power goes out in the middle of a BIOS update, kiss the motherboard goodbye; unless you made a copy of the existing BIOS version.

This is why I, and others state; that unless there is a definite reason to upgrade the BIOS program on your computer -> DON'T)

What bios are you using? Usually that error message can be disregarded since you can manually set the CPU clock, voltage, etc in the bios and it should work. Also, this might mean that the bios currently loaded is corrupted/broke. But since you did update the bios, to what version?
Also, are you using the integrated graphics for gaming? If so, that would not suffice for heavy gaming at high resolution. You should be using a dedicated video card for that.
As for system performance, how slow is it? What is your OS as well? can you try to download cpuid, and see if your processor is detected properly in windows.

Upgrading CPU


Yeah, it was a bit hard to find, not being a currernt model I was stuck on the Asus site trying to find out for you.
Then I found this site -
http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles/view.php?cid=6&id=465&pg=
It says
  • Socket 478 for Intel� Pentium 4 / Celeron processors
  • Intel� Pentium 4 Processors 1.4GHz - 2.53GHz or higher
  • Intel� Celeron Processors 1.7GHz - 1.8GHz or higher
  • Supports processors at 400 / 533MHz front side bus
    Or higher, it says. But doesn't say how higher. It's a fair assessment that if it is a Pentium 4 socket 478 chip, it should work. Then it's a case of choosing one that suits your budget.
    Have a look on the Asus site for the latest BIOS updates too - they might have a clue as to what chip you can go to -
    http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S533-MX&product=1&type=All&SLanguage=en
    Er, no - it doesn't tell you. But if you go thru the page you will find BIOS version 1005 that " P4S533-MX BIOS 1005
    Support new Intel P4 CPU" and the latest bios is 1007.002

    There's a motherboard user manual further down on the page. Make sure you choose the English one.
    Seems the issue is FSB speed, 533 or 400. No big problem for most, but I did see a Pentium4 3.0Ghz chip at 800 FSB so just check the speed of the processor matches the specs the motherboard handles. Like you say, looks like the 3.2 might be too fast because of the FSB requirement.
    Remember, a P4 is going to be quicker than a celeron anyhow so just go with the fastest 533 FSB chip you can find.
    A short-cut to the english manual, here - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s533-mx/e1187_p4s533-mx.pdf

    so this is the board..no doubt that the cpu fits and is a good choice for you.
    however,if the old one works fine and this one ,even if it is new,does not wiork,the only rational conclusion is that this one is malfunctioning ,maybe from the factory,or maybe one of the pins doesnt make a real contact.
    check very attentive the integrity of the pins and of the cpu socket in the motherboard.
    there are also some cases that the motherboard doesnt support the high Frequence of the new processor,but that was a problem for the old PCs..I doubt you have it with your motherboard.
    I suggest you to bring it back and to ask for a replacement,or at least go with it to  a specialised cervice and let them check it.
    sorry for not beeing a huge help to you,so dont rate my answer if you dont feel to..
    bye bye and good luck..keep me up to date with your situation
    bye
