Gigabyte GA-8I845E-L Main Board

Original CPU for GA-8I848E-L is broken then I put another Socket 478 Prescott 3.0 HGz but got hangs.  Finished memory count, got 1 short beep sound then hang, keyboard also hang.

Manual said the main board support Prescott CPU

Please help !

應該係 Bios 版本太舊, 所以認唔到 Prescoot 的 cpu
要更新 Bios 版本 才可以

去鋪頭揾人update, 或者買粒2手u, up完再放出去.....不過可能冇着數

I just know the CPU is 478, don't know what it is because it got thermal stuffs on the CPU.  I know it's Prescott 3.0GHz because the screen hang and I read from the screen.

How come the BIOS can recognise it's Prescott but cannot go ahead ?

I don't mind to exchange with someone else with low-grade one as long as this old motherboard is work.  Just use it for my son playing.

塊板係支援到Prescott
但因為太舊既Bios
CPU microcode唔update
變左認唔到粒CPU
所以最好upgrade BIOS先換CPU

I put the Prescott CPU then hang.  Do you think I take it out then the main board still can boot-up ?

If it can boot-up, according to the Gigabyte website,  I can download the updated Bios and flash the Bios from the Bios menu.

Brother, please comments !
