  1. Hi, list the rest of your setup please.
    Have you checked to see if your board needs a bios update to run the E7500?
    Also when you power up do all the fans etc spin up but just no display?
  2. The fans inside spin fine but there is just no display, pc makes very little noise mainly just the fans but evan they are fairly quite,

    The program speccy i have on my pc tells me this for my motherboard.

    Motherboard
    Manufacturer Foxconn
    Model 45GM/45CM
    Chipset Vendor Intel
    Chipset Model i945G
    Chipset Revision A2
    Southbridge Vendor Intel
    Southbridge Model 82801GB (ICH7/R)
    Southbridge Revision A1

    Have not yet checked the Bios update u talk about will check that now.
  3. And the cpu i currently have installed..

    Cores 2
    Threads 2
    Name Intel Pentium D 925
    Code Name Presler
    Package Socket 775 LGA
    Technology 65nm
    Specification Intel(R) Pentium(R) D CPU 3.00GHz
    Family F
    Extended Family F
    Model 6
    Extended Model 6
    Stepping 5
    Revision D0
    Instructions MMX, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, EM64T
  4. That CPU should be fine, try re-setting your bios.
  5. Yeah cheers lookin at bios now, do they have to be put onto a floppy disk?
  6. Just try re-setting it 1st.
    Find the jumper near the bios battery and switch it for a minute or so, switch it back and fire it up.
  7. Ok and what next?
  8. So you've put the new cpu in, reset the bios and it hasn't fired up??
  9. Well this time the monitor came on for like a slipt second but then instantly came up with "Monitor going to sleep", Fans ran as normal but there was a red flashing light at the front of my pc 0.o, so just turned it off and put old stuff back in :/
  10. So you did the bios reset, how long did you leave the jumper switched for.

    Update your bios if needed with the old cpu in, try again, if it doesn't fire up reset the bios and also remove the bios battery and leave it for 20 mins before re-trying.
  11. I left it off for about a minute as you said, turned it on left it for about another minute, switched it again for 30 secs ish.. put back in left for 30 secs then powered up.

    Ok will do, is there a mega easy way to update bios or can it only be done with floppy? Wud be better if it can go onto a flash drive intstead,
  12. Should be an easier way than floppy, check on the download page for your mobo, I cant access it at the minute.

    Not quite sure what you are doing there with the reset, do this.

    Unplug
    Press power button a few times
    Install cpu
    Switch bios jumper and remove bios battery
    Leave for 20 mins
    Put bios bat back in and switch jumper back
    Fire up machine
  13. Yeah well my motherboard dont seem to have that jumper, atleast i cant see it so i just take battery out and i did take smethin else out aswell but not sure if that was jumper or not, Looked on google where the jumpers are mainly positioned and checked on my motherboard but there was nothin, so not quite sure like But wont do anythin now till mornin for me too many drinks to start messin about, ive checked the website for my motherboard but seems best and easiest way for me to do it is to floppy disk it,

    Thnx for the help much apreciated will give a update on it in the mornin when ive sobered up :P
  14. HaHa, it won't work without the jumper, I'll see what I can find, HNY. [:bohleyk:1]

    Download your board manual - http://www.foxconnsupport.com/download.aspx?models=en-us0000315&category=C000000001&series=en-us0000002&keywords=&sort=Motherboard Manual

    On the main pic of the board next to the blue ide slot is a blue jumper called clear cmos.
    Thats the jumper you need to switch after you install the new cpu, try without the battery 1st.
    There are 3 pins just switch it to the empty pin for 20 secs then back again.
  15. Ok so i did that and the screen still stayed black so i put the old cpu in and turned it on, when i did it the screen came up with a blue menu with loads of different options, but with the new cpu it still doesnt work
  16. Thats the bios so you must have reset it ok, did you manage to update the bios ok?

    You need to try that cpu in another machine.

    What psu are you using?
  17. No i havent updated the bios yet i need to put the updats onto A usb since my pc doesnt have a slot for a floppy disk and having some problems with formattin my usb to correct requirments, and whats a psu lol?
  18. Ok my retardedness playin there My psu is a 500w

    You could do a dos boot cd and just save the files to a normal usb.

    Whats the make and model of the psu?
  20. Its a x-power atx-400td

    Well heres a link to a picture

    You said it was a 500w but that model and link is the 400w.

    If it is the 400w version thats the 1st thing you need to sort out, its not good quality and not enough power.

    Create your bootable usb drive - http://www.bay-wolf.com/usbmemstick.htm
    Download the latest bios file and copy the files to your bootable usb drive usb drive.
    Follow udate instructions, print them out - http://www.foxconnsupport.com/faq.aspx?faqid=F000000066
  23. Hurmm weird. when i whent into shop they told me it was a 500w, what twats lol,

    Well thatl have to be done tomoz then, god dam it. Cheers dude,

    Recon thatl be the reason why the screen stays blank then? Also do most powersupply fit into most cases?
  24. Also cud u recomend a cheap and good power supply. But in price range between about... maybe £50-£90
  25. Wont letme edit so srry for all the posts :/

    But u recon thisl be gd i have no clue when it comes to power supplies.

  26. Ok cheers ill just check my powersupply to see if its the 400watt version or 500watt first.
  27. Even if it is 500w I still wouldn't use it.
  28. Yeah ok col cheers just purchased the corsair 1, recon the change in power supply will do it or willi still need the bios update, cuz so far ive had no luck with gettin that bios updated
  29. Yes ive got the old cpu in cant use the new one yet. And the bios update is just screwin me around atm, tryed it with Usb but when i try and do it it says boot from Cd, and i have changed the boot priority to usb, so not quite sure now.
  30. Enter bios with usb plugged in and find hdd boot order, put the usb drive as 1st.

    You want the boot order set to hdd then it will selest the usb drive.

    Which Corsair? I changed it to a 550w for nearly the same price?

    Still do bios update, have you checked you don't have the latest already?
  32. the 550w rsion off ebuyer
  33. Nice1 [:bohleyk:1]
  34. yh wont be here till wednesday which is abit of a bitch, ill keep tryin to get this usb bios updated, i used that link u gave me and put all the files it gave me onto my usb.. is it a good thing to just put all of them on?
  35. You must create your bootable dos usb 1st.

    Then put the files from the Foxconn website onto the usb and follow update instructions 1 by 1.
  36. Ok cool ive put all them files from that http://www.bootdisks.us/ms-dos/5/m [...] mages.html

    and the 2 files from foxconn, will give it another try
  37. ^Don't need that link.

    You have to run the bootdisk file from your desktop to create the bootable usb drive.

    Then put the Foxconn files on the bootable usb drive.

    Create your bootable usb drive - http://www.bay-wolf.com/usbmemstick.htm
    Download the latest bios file and copy the files to your bootable usb drive usb drive.

  38. Ok then ive got to the point with the bios update when it comes up with smethin like >c/ or smethin like that and i have to type a command in. any ideas what it is i aint gotta clue :/
  39. Nevermind ive updated my bios to the latest version that the foxconn website could offer Ill now try with the new cpu in
  40. Thats the command line, type dir to list the items on the usb then execute the bios update.(check instructions)

    How'd you manage it then? Any good news?
  41. Nope, the bios update has been added and updated just put my cpu in and tried again but still no luck. Screen just flashes then says. "monitor going to sleep". very frustrating now. Any ideas?
  42. So how'd you get it to work, you are sure its updated ok, check it in bios and cpu-z.

    Don't overlook the possibility you have a dud cpu, any way you can try it in another machine?

    Thing is the E7500 is a 65w and your old D925 needs more juice as its a 95w so don't think its psu.
    So you updated the bios and booted into windows fine with the old cpu.
    Then changed cpu's and reset the bios before firing up again?
  43. Yes ive done all of that but still no luck and the bios has updated since last time it was was 2006 now its on 2008 whihc is latest version..
  44. And ill have to check with some mates if i cud try it in there machine since this is the only one i own.
  45. So you are using bios 732F1P27 - http://www.foxconnsupport.com/download.aspx?models=en-us0000315&category=C000000001&series=en-us0000002&keywords=&sort=BIOS

    The 1st thing I tried to check the other night was the cpu support list but I couldn't access the page.
    I have now accessed it and the E7500 isn't listed as being supported. :(
    http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx?type=mb&socket=Socket%20775&model=45GM&cputype=Intel
  46. Oh .... so theres no way itl work then..
  47. well ill have to try n sell this cpu on and buy the E6700, dam this is gettin expensive lol
  48. vantiler said:

    If its not on the supported list its not a good start, you could email Foxconn for confirmation.

    Did you buy it new, can't you return, pick up a e6600, they clock well and might be a bit cheaper.

    Be sure to get the C2D E6600 and not the Pentium E6600.
