PC wont boot after CPU upgrade Tags: CPUs Pentium Celeron Last response: November 21, 2009 4:39 PM in CPUs Share Anonymous a b à CPUs November 21, 2009 11:23:04 AM Hi, Just replaced my Celeron CPU with a Pentium D 945(3.4GHz,4MB)fsb 800 from an older PC. The pentium is working fine in the older machine. When the upgraded machine boots it gets past the BIOS screen and then switches off, I put the Celeron back into the MOBO, flashed the BIOS with the most recent version and when i put the pentium back in the problem still remains. I`m using a Gigabyte GA-945GCMX-S2 Mother board with 2 gigs of 667 ram and I followed all the MOBO instructions for installing a new CPU from the Manual. Can anybody help as i`m obviously doing something wrong, Dave More about : wont boot cpu upgrade GhislainG a c 117 à CPUs November 21, 2009 4:32:12 PM Are you sure that it doesn't overheat? m 0 l jsc a c 172 à CPUs November 21, 2009 4:37:12 PM Overheating because of improper HSF installation is one possibility.
