    D845GEBV2 processor upgrade?


      I have a P4 processor, 2 Ghz model SL68R, on Intel motherboard D845GEBV2. I want to upgrade to 2.8 or 3.0 Ghz processor...

      Where can I find the part numbers for the processors that will run on this board? The Intel website lists the processor speeds that are supported, but no model numbers to order them by.

      Is there a special instruction to initiate a new processor to run on this board? I tried installing SL7PK P4 2.8 Ghz processor, but the system won't boot. I can't find anything on the Intel website that has instuctions for upgrading to a faster processor, other than the basic instructions for plugging the new processor into the socket. (I managed to accomplish this OK)

      I also upgraded the bios to the latest version, no help, still won't boot.

      Does anybody know the secrets involved? Sure appreciate the advice if you have done this before. N.T.
