Problems with Slotket

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Alright. I have an ancient Abit BH6 and an older Coppermine core P3 that I wanted to get running. I purchased a slotket off of ebay a couple days ago and today it arrived. I installed the P3 in the slotket and everything, put it in the motherboard, turned it on, but it wouldn't POST! I have tried everything, but nothing seems to work. BTW I know the motherboard works, I was just using it with a Slot 1 P3 a couple hours ago...Help?

Have you considered that the slotket you purchased may be defective?

The CPU works, and I did clear the CMOS. The slotket might be defective, but it was brand new and in the package when I opened it..perhaps it's my 7 year old MB that's causing the trouble, I installed the P3 that was running in there before and it still isn't POSTing, I just get 1 long and 3 short beeps (Video card error? It works...)

I had a motherboard that did that to me this winter. It was an AMD processor that I tried to upgrade from a duron to an athlon. I got it to work once, but never after that. The specs on the board said that it would support it, but it wouldnt work. I finally decided that the board must really like the duron so I just left it in there. This is gonna sound stupid, but I think those old boards actually get broke into a processor after using it for so may years.

Is your coppermine P3 a 100MHz FSB or a 133MHz FSB part. What kind of P3 is the slot1 chip you have. If it's not a coppermine, you may need a BIOS update to support coppermine CPUs, or even just to support later versions of them. Bios updates add support for new CPUs by adding updated microcode, which is a small set of code loaded onto the CPU to help it function properly, like working around slight bugs in the design.

The BH6 has the legendary intel i440BX chipset, which technically doesn't support 133MHz (although practically every i440BX in existence will overclock to 133+ MHz in a heartbeat, hence the legendary status ). It may get confused if you feed it a FSB ID signal for setting 133MHz.

Also, I don't know for sure, but some slotkets are only for 66/100MHz FSB chips. I think you need one designed for 133MHz to run 133MHz P3's. Many slotkets have jumpers to force a certain FSB signal, and also some can set voltage ID signals, too. You might want to look over yours to make sure that any jumpers are properly configured. Also, just to say it, make sure the slotket is pushed in all the way. Since it has two rows of contacts like an AGP slot, and if it's kind of stiff, it might not slide through both sets of pins in the socket unless you push it hard enough. It will feel kind of like a 2 stage snap into place.

BTW: I had a BH6 a while ago. It is an awesome mobo for P3's. One of the best!

I googled beep codes, and, assuming it's an award BIOS, that is the bad video card signal.

I belive that some have jumpers on them, or dip switchs.

Try those. Also, look for a BIOS update for the motherboard, and try to set the FSB at the CPU's FSB, then put it in.

Good luck.

I'm almost positive I have the latest bios flashed on my MB, I could double check though. I found a S370 Celeron with a 100Mhz FSB (The P3 I was using had a 133Mhz FSB) and put it in. Now, instead of nothing happening, it will just freeze at the video bios screen (At least its a step forward). I tried another video card, one I know works, and it still froze. I might just have to tinker with the mobo and maybe I'll get lucky.. And the beep error I was getting is gone now, too..

I had a Mendocino core Celeron that I tried in the slotket and it worked fine, meaning that the slotket isn't defective. Maybe this mb doesn't fully support a Coppermine core?

I think the mobo technically only supports coppermines up to 700 MHz.

Although it doesn't say, it must support coppermines, since Katmai was only made up to 650 MHz.
