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.

Or reset your bios to default it could still be set up for old cpu

Yes it will work just fine. Just download and update your Bios to the latest version which is the 1007 release and you should be good to go. You can get the latest Bios here:

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
