I have a suspect MSI 945GCM7 V2 motherboard and a working Intel D945GTP motherboard. The only identification on the CPU in the MSI is: 2L71219 OA116 - no manufacturer's ID. Would the CPU in the MSI run in the Intel? Is there a site which shows compatabilty between different motherboards?
Seems both motherboards support the same processors - with a few different ones mentioned. Problem is I have no idea which processor it is.
This is all as a result of the PC dying a few days ago. Have bought a new PSU and MOBO all to no avail. Now about to check that the memory is compatible. I suspect not as both MOBOs support Kingston DDR2 533/677 but MSI MOBO had DDR2 800 in it and has always worked until now.
