cpu upgrade

  bazbulldog 20:01 30 Nov 2003

my computer has a duron 750 processor on a jetway
vbn780 motherboard,I have been given an 1g athlon
but when I fitted it it showed up as a 750 athlon
so I thought I would just change the motherboard from pc100 to pc133 but when I did I got the dreaded blue screen.I then had to change back to
pc100 when the computer started ok but as a 750
athlon,I have tried this several times with the same results,any help would be appreciated.

have you seen if you can get a bios upgrade,have you checked to see if the new cpu is supported,both bits of info available from web site

It should be in BIOS some setting relating to your cpu, I had to do the same thing when I upgraded an 800 Duron to 1.3 Athlon.

Sorry cant be more helpful it was a while ago that I did the upgrade, if you have a mobo manual look in there for the BIOS settings you can change.
