Hi Folks, I'm having really trouble after upgrading from a 850 Duron Cpu to a Duron 1,3GHZ.After installing the new cpu my PC want start up .I'm using a Gigabite Motherboard GA-7IXE4. I removed it again and reinstalled it, but nothing happen.I also reinserted all Pci cards and Vga cars and Ram.Another problem is that you can't hear the powergood Signal but that is normal on this Pc. I really need some assistance with this problem. Thank you in addvance!
Contact your motherboard manufacturer with your model number and ask them. They do have updates on the website click here and from this it seems it should support the new cpu but its always nice to have an email from them giving you the OK. Check the version of your bios when your pc switches on there should be writing on the first black screen that loads saying the bios version. If your version is not version F9 (from website) then you will have to flash your bios. Come back here if thats the case before doing anything.
If you go to the giga byte website you can get a manual for the motherboard with instructions on changing the settings. Does the box for your new cpu have the fsb speed? Are there any instructions with it?
I've also downloaded the manual but there is not much about it . It explaines how to set the speed, but I'm still not certain about the speed on this CPU. There is nothing on the Package of the Prossesor!
