CPU change

  loser7 19:57 02 Apr 2005

For anyone that read my earlier thread i apologise for lack of info and lack of knowlege. I have put a 2.6mhz P4 celeron in a Gigabyte P4 Titan series GA-8SG800 motherboard. I do not have the motherboard manual but i checked thier site and they are compatable, but the computer will not boot up. Somebody mentioned i might have to change the bios settings but i dont know where to find out what to change them to if i that is even the problem.. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Your 2.6 Celeron - is it a Celeron or a CeleronD - the CeleronD is the one with a 533FSB and a 256Kb cache - and won't work in this board.

Ok it is a celeron D.. Many thanks for your help and apologies for all the threads, i will get it right next time

I tried to repost here saying "may not work" - but the current PCA troubles seem to have lost it.

The real news is I'm not quite sure becase I can't actually find this board on the Gigabyte website.

I had a quick look and could not come up with anything positive:-(

I posted this in another thread, any use?

That's the list I couldn't find - it does confirm no support for CeleronD/Prescott type processors - so my instinct was right even though you managed to find the proof yourself. Glad it's sorted, anyway.
