Question about Dell Poweredge 650 - P4 3.0GHZ, 1GB/40GB PC Desktop

1 Answer

I am trying to upgrade my PE650 from a Celeron CPU to a P4 2.8GHz. Once I change the CPU the server will not run the BIOS. I just get a blank screen with all the fans running. Do I need to reset the BIOS to Factory Defaults?

    Can you get into your bios by hitting F8 or F12 at start up? Will it start in safe mode?

First of all, open your case with the power unplugged and check to make sure you plugged in every part of the motherboard to the power supply. Look for white plugs.

If that doesn't work, try this:

1. Go to this website and scroll down to Figure 5-2. http://support.ap.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/pe650/en/sm/jumpers.htm

2. While the computer is off and unplugged, use the picture as a reference and move the jumper on your motherboard to NVRAM_CLR.

3. Plug in your computer and boot it up. Wait at least 15 seconds then turn off the computer and unplug it.

4. Change the Jumper back to it's original position on the motherboard.

5. Plug in the computer and run the BIOS

Thanks, Rodrick

Changing CPU - Celeron with Pentium 4 - the PC does not start. Is any switch to modify on mainboard ?


may have to check that its compatible and if so you probably need to upgrade motherboard bios to support new chip. Put old one back in update system bios then install new one if supported. Have run into this many times.

ASUS CUSI-M ACPI BIOS Revision 1007 run very slow when i wana use 1024 by 768 pixel.how i can solve this problem.my processor speed is 700 MHz. 2.is it possible AMD 1.3 processor connect with this...


Getting you're system to display 1024 x 768 resolution depends on the graphics card. If you’re using the onboard VGA you will have poor display.
Suggest you use a PCI (White slot) graphics card with its own memory onboard. You will also need to make a bios setting change so the system boots to the PCI card and not the VGA.
Asus no longer provides support for this MB including drivers and bios.
You're board also supports slot A (For AMD), processors.
Only Intel Celeron and Intel Pentium III. Socket 370
see link provided;
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-ASUS/CUSI-M.html
Max CPU supported (With out over clocking);

In order to run this CPU you would need to update the bios to rev 1009. You'll find rev 1009 at the next link; http://www.userdrivers.com/BIOS/Asus-CUSI-M-BIOS-1009-With-LAN/
From what I've read it is possible to Get an AMD slot A CPU into a socket 370 MB. (Don't hold me to this though. This is a first for an old dog.
Any one of these PCI graphics cards should function on you're MB; http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/Category/guidedSearch.asp?CatId=28&sel=Detail;55_158_2872_2872

In short, yes you can upgrade to a P4 cpu but from the compatibility chart at Intel support, it looks like the upper limit for this older board is the P4 2.6GHz.

Note: Even at that, running the P4 2.6 would require a BIOS upgrade to P12 or greater.

Luckily, the following link has the information you seek: (for BIOS info, click the "BIOS Version" link in the upper right corner of the compatibility table provided)

Toshiba Satellite M45-S169 CPU Upgrade


the chipset will support pentium M processors and some pentium 4 notebook processors. the bios should recognize the processor's new speed and should be able to support a 533mhz fsb. as long as your celeron is not soldered to the socket, you should be fine with the upgrade.

Cpu upgrade wont happen


Ok i checked the ASUS website and looked up the CPU compatibility list for your board here:
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

But unfortunately that particular CPU doesn’t seem to be supported. Must be something to do with the technology inside the CPU or the amount of L2 cache or something like that. (it would require some rather intensive research to find out exact reason why...

And when searching for ASUS motherboards that are compatible with that CPU it comes up with this short list;

AP120-E1
AP130-E1

PSCHL009
AP140R-E1
P4RD1-MX


Did you clear the cmos when installing the new cpu before powering it up?

i know the CPU you have now runs at 400FSB and the new one runs at 800FSB But that board supports both speeds so that shouldn’t be a problem.

What type of RAM do you have ?
maybe check owners manual for memory compatibility chart for new 800FSB CPU

Have you tried the latest beta bios from ASUS site :
I can not guarantee that it will work but it is worth a try.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?model=P4S800D-X%20&f_type=34&SLanguage=en-us
NOTE: Updating the bios can be risky and should only be done to resolve compatibility issues or things like that (or to add CPU support) In the rare event of a power failure during bios update your motherboard could become permanently unusable. (Always use a brand new floppy and follow the instructions to the letter when updating system bios)

Upgrade the processor on a Toshiba equium l40 series from a celron M


The core2 duo chips will be a different socket to your celeron cpu so can do that unfortunately. You may be able to upgrade to a faster cpu of the same socket type but will probably need a bios update for it to run at proper speed.

Unfortunately laptops arent really designed to be upgraded at all bar extra ram/hd/dvdrw.

Hope that helps?
