Motherboard CPU Type ?.
« on: January 22, 2007, 04:44:03 PM »

Hello All.

I've got a machine with a mobo that's failing, it uses a socket,  'A' Duron cpu,
I have a spare mobo which is also socket 'A' and it says use a  Athlon XP or Duron cpu.

So could I just use the old cpu out of the old mobo in the new mobo ?.   ;)

Make sure bus speed is correct, if the motherboard isn't one that auto-detects. If in doubt, set it to 100Mhz and go upwards from there if the CPU isn't detected as fast enough.
