Question about EliteGroup P4VXMS (P4VXMS-R) Motherboard

2 Answers

South Bridge Hi, I have a P4 1.6ghz custome computer that has recently stopped working. I took it to a repair shop and they noticed the smell of something burning and discovered that the "south bridge" chip was extremely hot and had a scorch march on the top. They said that the motherboard was shot and that I had to get a brand new one which by the time it was all over, would be cheaper to buy a new computer.Whith that said, my question is: Is there another board that I can use the same processor and memory that I currently have (Intel P4x266-8233) to save some money,as it is very tight right now. Your help is greatly appreciated! M~

    I am just a little confused because I was under the impression that it was a 423 socket. When i removed the heat sheild to remove the processor it says on the locking assembly that it is a 423 pin socket. so does that mean that it is a 423 socket? and if so does that mean that my current processor will only fit in a 423 socket motherboard?

You can use any mainboard that supports your CPU and memory, look for a board that has same memory slots, most likely DDR memory and supports the voltage your P4 needs. Most likely, (double check by searching the code on top of the cpu in google or wikipedia), your cpu is a socket 478, code name Willamate. Once you have that, look up motherboard manufacturer websites and search by the socket 478 and make sure the memory is the same type DDR or even older SDRAM. (try Gigabyte.com.tw, MSI.com.tw, DFI.com.tw, ASUS.com)

SOURCE: 1333 FSB processor ( E6850 ) on a 1066 FSB motherboard, DDR2 667 memory

Hi proenza. you're making good sence! You're D945GCL MB should be able to run 1066 FSB. Not 100% sure you're memory will keep FSB up to 1066.
Here's the trouble though. The Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 will not run on the Intel D945GCL motherboard because it is not supported. Look here at Intel's web site. Supported CPU's.
http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.aspx?Boardname=d945gcl

Intel E6850 specs sheet. http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Intel-Intel-Core-2-Duo-E6850-Processor-3-0GHz-4MB-Cache-1333MHz-FSB-Conroe-Dual-Core-OEM-Socket-77

Intel E6700 spec sheet. http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Intel-Core-2-Duo-E6700-2-67Ghz

This CPU is supported by the D945GCL MB.
http://processormatch.intel.com/CompDB/SearchResult.aspx?Boardname=d945gcl

Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 Processor BX80557E4700 - 2.60GHz.
$149.99
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3826343&CatId=2396

In order to get 1066MHz (CPU can run at), you'll also need the memory support at 800MHz. The D945GCL MB can only run DDR2-667MHz.
Many people buy a CPU to run MB's specs (1333MHz) just to find the same MB does not support DDR2-1066MHz or DDR2-800MHz. Motherboard Mfg's are lagging. DDR3-1333MHz is out there now to support the 1333 MHz CPU FSB.

I hope this has helped you make a decision proenza.

Good Luck!

HI. My Yamaha D80 while playing gave a burned smell and than sound quit. Rest works. I opened rearcover and notice 3rd fuse in the back was blown. Changed it. Blew again. So I stopped fidling around.


If the fuse blows and a smell of burning is present then its obvious there i a fault somewhere ahead of the fuse, the fuse is a protection device.

A smell when making stops could mean a brake issue. If you've been braking hard for a while, the brakes can heat up and start smelling.

My problem is simple to describe: The computer starts and runs fine,except for the smell...and the heat. The smell resembles burning plastic,and the heat output is noticeably higher. There's no smoke...


It more than likey seems to be your fan if the heat from your tower is noticeably higher and the smell.

If computer still under gaurantee you will be able to get it repaired for free from the manufacturers.

If not, take the tower cover off, and get a hoover and **** all dust particles from the system.

You may also need to invest into another fan, this should stop the smell and also the overheating

Hope this helps and please rate thanks.

Burning smell


That burning smell was possibly the motor windings burning out. If the windings have burned the blender will need to be replaced. Hope this has helped you today,.......... Sea Breeze

Burning smell


The amps do have issues that is for sure - That is where I step in - I can repair your amp and make it so it won't burn up (catch on fire) again. When the amp goes it burns a hole in the board - but it can be repaired. I have done several hundred and all customers are happy :) ... Look for my add here and also on ebay

ProScan PS32500 32"-Picture has white static line & Static/burning smell


It sounds like the circuit board is arching over somewhere. It could be as simply as cleaning and digging out the carbon mark to stop the arching. This is most likely the screen or focus voltage causing this, if there are no parts that have broken down. This will damage the printed circuit board and make things worse the more you let this cook. This could be dangerous for you to mess with because of the high voltage present, so my best advise would be to get this into the repair shop as soon as possible before this board burns up. It should not cost all that much if the CRT board can be repaired. Good Luck
