CPU compatibility issues

Hi CMV9. Many thanks for the answer provided. Now just to confirm, would you get a CPU only upto 2 GHZ or would you risk adding a more speedy one? Many thanks

To be completely hoenst with you i wouldn't go any higher than a 2ghz or maybe a 2.4 and that might be pushing it. if you are wanting something that is like a 3.0ghz with 2gig of ram and a 120gig hard drive. well hey you might want to just buy a new computer. i know walmart has dell's that have thoses specs on them for around 500 for desktops and about 550 for laptops.
i used to work on computers for a living but stopped becaue i couldn't compete with those prices. i could rack up a bill like than in 4 hours time.....but it is up to you. but i wouldn't go much high than a 2.4 but would be ok with a 2.0 you should have any problems there.

please comment and rate on your experiance with fixya and me. Let others know where they can find..... Have a good day.

Greetings. I wanna upgrade my processor from amd sempron 3200+ 1.8 ghz to athlon 2 x2 260 processor. But when I put the athlon 2 x2 260 proc, it didnt work.

Did you check to see if it would handle that type of upgrade? Maybe that's your problem, it's not compatible. Research and see if it can handle it, then we can find a solution if it can.

Cpu runs on wrong speed the 2.4ghz but it runs on 1.8 ghz

There are so many factors involved and numerous solutions that could help. But a bios update is a last resort, get it wrong and you are buying a complete new motherboard.

Some help with Asrock P4i45GV motherboard

compatibility issue only. the 2.4 you replace is it celeron? or P4?. Bus speed check also. if you are using WIN XP OS, you go to control panel, systems, then general check what is the processor type. it will still show 2.0G but running at lower speed. That would confirm incompatible cpu with your board.
