Hi ? Everyone.
I want to upgrade my computer's motherboard
and recently, I got motherboard: ASUS P4P800 SE

I read instructions and I have a question about CPU.

In my computer, I have

Intel Pentium 4, 2.53 GHz w/ 512K L2 Advanced Transfer Cache and 533MHz FSB

I am not sure that my current CPU could fit in New motherboard.
I got the motherboard from mother for gifts.

However, anyone can answer my question ?

In the instruction, it support Intel Pentium 4 but I do not know that motherboard will work fine or not.

First, Thank you for replying my messages to
howard_hopkinso and SOcRatEs

Now I checked my configuration, my computer cpu is 478 socket.

By the way, I have a plan to go to computer expert, but
When I ask them to rebult my computer,

They told me $135 !!!! :mad:

Therefore, I ask You (member of TechSpots) again.

Anyone know easiest building my own computer books ?
I prefer explain by picture with step by step.

But I am worried that I have to reinstall my hard drive (Computer expert said if I want to install "New MotherBoard", I have to unplug everything and Format Hard drive)

I know that "Building my own computer Book" does not include if I have a computer and I just need install "New MotherBoard"

Help me to end of my suffer from money and time.

From
neowing.

Try here "For Dummies" (Plz don't ake this as insult it really is the name of the books)
Prices look much better than 135$

For step by step instructions on how to build a computer look HERE

As for having to format your hdd and reinstall your os,this may not be necessary.

What you need to do is, before you start to do the build, uninstall all your current mobo drivers.

Then when you`re finished building, boot from your Windows disk, and do a repair install as per this thread HERE.

Once that`s completed, install all your new mobo`s drivers.

Regards Howard :) :)

Will this work for XP pro if I'm runnin a sata drive as my primary drive?
I imagine it will since it'll ask for "f6 load load 3rd party scsi drivers"
Thank you for this as well!
I'll be needing this soon.
