mobo not seeing CPU properly

  xenith 20:08 18 Jun 03

Asus P4G8X Deluxe motherboard, P4 3Gb CPU:

mobo only registers 1500Mhz in BIOS, same registered in Windows...

i know on some mobos you can change jumper setting for FSB, but can't locate this on this mobo.

any ideas pleeeeez?

Hi xenith. Is it not just a case of setting the FSB speed and multiplier value in BIOS. I don't know the motherboard, but found this - click here.

If you read your manual, you will see this is a "jumper free" motherboard.

Since P4s are clock locked, you simply go into the Advanced BIOS settings, and set the CPU speed to Auto. If this doesn't work, then you are likely to have a fault, not a mis-setting.

thx gongoozler and diesse, hmmmm
not too sure where to leave this one... don't really wanna have the aggrevation of returning it...etc

yes the bios is set to auto...

i think i'll wait to see if there are any other further ideas before sending parts back...

thankx again!

You haven't put a new 3.0GHz P4 designed for an 800MHz bus into it, have you? Since this motherboard does not have an 800MHz bus, that would give some strange values, no doubt (like half the rated speed??).
