Hi

I have motherboard Asus P5LD2-VM/S Rev. 4.00G with AMI BIOS ver. 0402 OEM MAXDATA .
CPU is Intel celeron 420 1,6 ghz and I wanted upgrade it with one stronger / better / faster CPU ,but can not find a list of supported CPU.

The ASUS suport told me tath motherboard is OEM and that they can not help me. :( 

And here is the response from the MAXDATA :(  :evil: 
Due to the MAXDATA AG Insolvency in 2008 we are unable to provide you with more information on the old systems then the ones located on our ftp server at ftp://download.maxdata.de/. Other options are unfortunately unavailable as we don't have access to materials from the old MAXDATA AG.

If anyonehad any experience with this motherboard, specifically upgrading the BIOS or CPU or both any advice is welcome.

Here are some details:

I wanted to upgrade CPU but before that I wanted to upgrade my BIOS to AMI 0404 that I found in MAXDATA suport web page for my motherboard (Here are the official MAXDATA drivers and BIOS P5LD2-VM/S Ver. 4.00G ftp://ftp.maxdata.de/MAXDATA%20PCs/MAXDATA%20Desktop/1%... ). Now what interests me is, it's a fail 0404_BIOS_CD.iso which contains two .ROM files IDE.ROM and RAID.ROM, is not a classic BIOS with one BIOS ROM file so I assume that they will seek to I choose one of them. And there is no instruction on how do thet,properly upgrade bios.
There is also a file History_400.pdf explaining what was changed in the new BIOS .

I install the ASUS Update tool and he my motherboard seen as P5LD2-VM-CONROE-PWR
Here are pictures:

Does my motherboard supports Intel® Core™2 Quad Processor Q6600 (8M Cache, 2.40 GHz, 1066 MHz FSB) 65nm ( SLACR ) with the new BIOS (AMI 0404)

Any advice or help about CPU/BIOS upgrades, thanks
sorry for bad english

I again ask just to confirm:

I see you still have in offer MAXDATA Favorit I5000 with E4400 CPU 325.00 EUR (Is this the same?), I guess you speak from experience.


the answer is:
