I have an old Dell Precision Workstation 450. It has a single Intel XEON 2.4GHz cpu inside. I've got a second Intel XEON 2.4GHz cpu that I'm trying to add inside since it has a slot for a second cpu. The 2 cpus are the same family and are both in working condition when in single cpu mode. But when I put the second cpu inside, the system won't start/boot.
Any ideas ?
Check the second cpu and vrm on their own to verify they work before you add the second cpu.
Verify psu compatibility. If the mobo manual 'recommends' eps 24-pin & 8-pin connectors it pretty much is a requirement.
WinXP/Win2k Pro or a 'Nix needed to boot into OS.
Does that workstation require ecc ram ???
