I have just installed a new processor, from 2.5ghz to a 3.2Ghz P4. I installed a new heatsink and fan that would be ok for up to a 3.4ghz P4.
All good i turned the PC on and it seemed ok, i checked Mycompter>Propities and it had registered as 3.2GHz etc, i was very happy.
Then windows said it had finished installing the new drivers and my PC had to be restarted in order for them to take effect! brilliant, i clicked ok.
When my computer came back on it said that windows wasn't shut down properly blah blah blah do i want to start in sfae mode or normally. I clicked normally. The computer then just does a bit of loading but restarts and goes round again with the same screen! so this time i opt for safe mode. I then see it starts to load all the drivers but restarts yet again! Back to the same screen!
I can enter BIOS ok and it still registers as 3.2 ghz, the only thing i have done differently is to let windows install the hardware drivers! now it won't start!
can anyone help! can i boot it from a floppy or something, or roll back a driver? baring in mind i can't get into windows!!! is there anything in BIOS i can do!
I'm in a bit of a panic and really am worried i have messed something up, but how?
my pc was an emachines oringinally, when i put the emachines cdrom into my pC and boot it from that, it only lets me do a complete re-install it also gives me a warning the all my HDD info will be lost!
THIS CAN'T BE! if i was to get an original stand alone windows xp disc would that work?
im looking to upgrade my processer in my motherboard GA-K8NS ULTRA-939, at present fitted with a 3000+ amd. Can anyone tell me what the max processer is i can fit. i know it will AtHlon FX, but will it take X2 processers ?. anyone have a combination thats works good.
