Swapping processors and/or overclocking help needed.
I have a Pentium 4 2.00GHz processor in the computer I use.
I have a Pentium 4 2.80GHz processor in a completely broken computer I just got back from someone. (don't give me tips on fixing it, I mean it's completely smashed, I really dot care about it)
So anyway, they are both 478 pins (Im pretty sure, I can look again), I thought I could swap them out.
But I tried and when I put in the 2.8GHz processor and turn on my PC, my monitor keeps saying "no signal"
When I put the processor in a friend's PC it works fine.
So if anyone can give me any tips on that, GREAT.
After having failed that, I looked into overclocking, and unfortunatly, it looks like I won't be able to. From what I understand, there are 2 ways, through the system BIOS and through a tool for it (like ClockGen).
Well, my PC is so old (2002 Presario 6330us), that the manuel doesn't have anything about how to open the BIOS on it. It's all stuff like "How to use a mouse wheel", and "What is Internet?" (seriously, it has those!).
So I can't figure out how to open it! I've tried delete and all of F1-F12.
As for the tools, well ClockGen doesn't have the adjustable things for me, someone told me it's because Pentium 4s are locked or something.
Anyone know how I can get either one to work?
