Dell 8200 CPU UPGRADE
Posted on 2003-11-29
Hi all, I have a (year old) Dell 8200 with an Intel Motherboard and a P-4 2.4 ghz w/533 FSB.
I have just purchased an Intel P-4 2.8ghz for 533 FSB, but when installed, the PC will not boot, on power-up, the system doesn't respond. Do I need to re-set the CMOS in order to get it to work?
I am well versed in PC technology, and this is the first Processor problem I have had, the chip works in another newer PC. I seem to be overlooking something, when I put the 2.4 back in, all is well. The Motherboard specs tell me that it will accept a 2.8!
Thanks in advance!!
