I have a P4VMM2 motherboard with an Intel Celeron 1.7 GHz processor which I have tried to replace by an Intel Celeron 2.4 GHz from an ASUS motherboard, but it didn't work at all. Can some please tell me why?. I even set the motherboard jumpers to meet the new processor's frequence, but I didn't even get a message from the system telling me anything about the situation.
Thanks in advance,

Re: Possible cpu upgrades for p4vmm2 motherboard
I see that you have already had this answered at Techspot.com
They were right when they answered you, you need to check your MB manual to see if it is capable of upgrading to the CPU that you want to use, not all MB support all CPU's just because they both have 478 pins.
I looked on the ASUS website and they don't even list your MB model on there.

Whenever you try to upgrade motherboard and CPU's with Windows XP, you're probably going to have to format your drive and re-install XP. When you originally install XP it detects the motherboard and IDE controlers for your hard drives and installs the drivers needed but it doesn't install all drivers for motherborads and IDE controlers. When you swap out motherboards and the system tries to fire it doesn't have drivers available for the new motherboard and can't complete the boot into windows. Every once in a while you get luck and the new and old motherboard can use the same drivers but this is very rare. So when upgrading motherboards plan on backing up your hard drive of all files you need to keep and being prepared to format and re-install windows.
Aspire 4315 Specifications
Specifications Part Number
Varies by specifications Processor / Speed
Intel Celeron mobile processor 530/540/550 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.73/1.86/2 GHz, 533 MHz FSB), supporting Intel 64 architecture
if you have a 2 Ghz processor installed, you will have to replace the motherboard to go with a faster CPU.. which will be spendy..
Hope this helps
Check the installation instructions; it may be necessary to change some small jumpers on the board if it is not designed to auto-detect the processor.
If you don't have the info on the board, check with Safemanuals.com or retrevo.com or Elite's website for a download.
It's ok to upgrade the processor to P4 the mother board is capable to run the pentium 4 2.0Ghz only . I said that because i'm using that type of motherboard ecs p4vmm2 with processor 2.0Ghz. But for my opinion the problem of your friend computer is not the processor is about the cooling fan heatsink because if the heatsink is not fit or properly lock the processor is over heating that's why the computer hanging and shutdown. If you can tight the two clip that was broken the problem is solved because i have also the same problem before one of my client computer. but if you friend want to upgrade to p4 it's better to buy also a new fan and heatsink for P4.
2500/256 celeron is 2.4 GHz. If there is a setting in bios, it should work. Most Intel motherboards do not allow you to change the clock speed as incressing clock speeds lead to system instability and less processor life. YOU WILL ALSO LOSE THE WARRANTY!!!
