    P4 upgrade on motherboard D845GEBV2


      I have a P4 processor, 2.0 Ghz, model SL68R, on motherboard D845GEBV2. I want to upgrade to a 2.8 or 3.0 Ghz processor. How do you find the part numbers for the processors? Intel lists the processor speeds that are supported, but no part numbers.

      I tried to install a P4 processor, 2.8 Ghz, model SL7PK, but the system won't boot with that model installed. I have not been able to find any instructions on the Intel website concerning the upgrade for this board.

      Is there a special set of instructions (other than plugging the new processor into the socket) ?

      I have also tried updating the bios to the latest version...

      Thank you for any information concerning a P4 upgrade for this board. N.T.
