I am trying to install a new processer in my PC, but does not seem to be working (when I power-on, PC does not get to square-1 in boot sequence). Old processor works fine (366 mhz celeron). Here is the specs of the new CPU and mobo:

MOBO:
Intel 82443BX chipset. Dual processor support. Not sure on manufacturer / model.

CPU:
1.2 ghz celeron
100 mhz system bus (yes, same as mobo)
256 kb on-die cache
FCPGA 2 (socket 370)
Uni-processor only (I am installing on a dual processor board, but as a single processor)
.13 micron process
Requires electronically compatible motherboard (no @#@! clue what this actually means)

Anyone know if these should be compatible? Thanks in advance for any insights.

if my understanding of intel hardware is correct then the BX based motherboard's do not support a tualatin core CPU's, which is what all .13 based PIII's and cellys use.

I think that your Mobo not is compatible with Celeron 1.2 Ghz, because, there is one great difference of architecture between the Celeron 366 and the Celeron 1.2. Besides chipset BX is old too. I searched for the MoBo, but I didn't find nothing.

That adapter works with fewer boards than the Powerleap adapter because it doen't have it's own VRM. Many early BX boards didn't support voltages below 1.80v, and setting the adapter to 1.80v may fry the Tualatin CPU.

It may work with a $20 Upgradeware adapter, then again, it may not. There are a lot of issues involved. It's more likely to work with a Powerleap IP3/t adapter than the Upgradeware version.

I'll sell you a Powerleap adapter for $40.

Thanks for the help, guys! I will try one of these adapters.

Certainly. My suggestion would be to try the Upgradeware version. If that one doesn't work, I'll give you $20 trade in value towards the IP3/t I'm selling.
