I want to upgrade my CPU from a Pentium 4 ht 3.2Ghz to a core 2 duo e6300 1.86GHz.
i have an Asus P5P800 Motherboard which at stock had the Pentium 4 ht 3.2Ghz
my question is does this board support duel core processors because once i had installed the core 2 duo e6300 1.86GHz my PC wouldn't start up at all.
Do i need to set something in the BIOS to different settings for this to work or should i invest in a new board. if so any suggestion which are at a reasonable price £50-£80 max
If you already have the C2D E6300, then you have to buy a new motherboard that support it:
Here are possible choices. Just look at CPU supported and you can pick those that support Core 2 Duo according to your budget.http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/prods/Components/Motherboards/Intel775AllChipsetMotherboards/
