Hi mickie,
I looked at the manual & did not see support for C2D. So I went to Asus & checked the CPU's supported. (No c2d).
To see the CPU's supported go to this Asus web site for you're P5VDC-MX mother board. Click on this link;
Look to the left of the page. Click on the link, (CPU Support). Asus will open the current CPU's supported for the motherboard.
Lets say you are looking at this CPU;
Celeron D 346 (3.06 GHz, 533 FSB, LGA775)E0,EM64T).
Look to the right where you'll see "GO". All you need to do too support that CPU is download the proper bios file & bios utility for that CPU.
Where did you see support for C2D in the P5VDC-MX manual?
Page number please? I miss many things here at fixya.....

ASUS Update V6.10.01 for Windows

From here:

Look under utilities.
And select global for download.
The file needs to be unziped before installation

The program will upgrade the bios while you operating system are running.
MAKE sure your internet connection is available.

Here is a youtube video that shows how to that:

Hope this was helpfull.

How to get 1920x1080 resolution in asus P5VDC-MX on board vga

The on-board graphics is not capable of that resolution. You will have to install a video card with at least 512 MB graphics memory to get there. You may be pushing the limits of this motherboard and should consider an upgrade.

I need changes my memory 2 pcs @ 1GB DDR1 PC3200 with 2 pcs @ 2GB DDR2 PC6400 in Asus P5VDC-MX Motherboard. please advice. Thank you

Number of Memory Slots: 2×184pin + 2×240pin
Memory Standard: DDR 400/DDR2 533
Maximum Memory Supported:2GB

PC6400(DDR2 800) is not supported by your motherboard. Also max memory is 2GB. PC4200 is the fastest memory you can install. There might be a BIOS update available from ASUS website to increase the speed but you would have to check the site.
