PL-K6-III Upgrade won't work
Posted on 1999-06-26
I have a Packard Bell PC (mistake I know) but bought the Powerleap CPU upgrade kit, the PL-K6-III 400mhz, I have done all the research I could and determined that the upgrade should work. When I put the new CPU in, it booted to the configuration screen, showed that it recognized the new CPU, but would not boot into windows. (it just stays on the config screen). My original system came with the 233mmx pentium chip and my Motherboard is the PB810. I downloaded PB's latest BIOS upgrade hoping that would help but it didn't. Would a third party BIOS work, the original BIOS is from AWARD but of course Packard Bell took it and put there name on it so it says it is a Pacakrd Bell BIOS. I have talked and chatted with just about every PB tech in the company and the consensus is I shouls be able to use the K6-III upgrade, but it just won't work... Should I return the product?
