Intel E8400 with Asus P5N-E SLI???

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I tried installing the Intel E8400 on the Asus P5N-E SLI. When I booted up the machine, it would freeze on the microsoft corporation screen, and the welcome screen. The bios is up to date with version 0901. When I dropped my E4500 back in, everything booted and ran fine. Any ideas on what the issue might be?

BIOS 0803 and up should support that CPU. You may have gotten a bad one. I think based on the fact that your E4500 runs without any issues you've taken your troubleshooting as far as you can and narrowed down the culprit.

I have an E8400 with a P5N-E SLI. I am using the beta edition 1009 of the bios I do believe. HOWEVER! When I first put mine in, it booted fine but it did tell me that I needed a bios update to -and I quote- "Unleash the processors full power" in the bios log. And this was with no bios update at all just stock.

So far I haven't had any problems with the beta and it completely supports the CPU. If you do get it up and running, check the GHZ, cuz the bios will change it to stepping 6 as opposed to 9 to get 3 GHZ.

Also try resetting default values in your bios. If you have fiddled with it when the e4500 was in there it will think that you want the same setup done with the e8400 which may be cauzing the lock up.

Get the most up to date BIO i think it 1002 or 1009 I don't remember and your chip should run fine I this problem with my old E7200 Chip.

E8400 should run good on your board even with a 30% overclock

I do not feel that safe running a beta bios. I figured my current bios (0901) would not be an issue running this processor??? Also, I never changed any settings in my bios with the E4500. Would you all agree I had a bad processor?

You say Microsoft Corporation, implying that Windows is attempting to start? In which case, it could that your OS wasn't happy about the new CPU. Have you tried booting into safe mode with the new chip?

No I havent. In fact, when I did get into windows once with the new chip in, it looked like it installed drivers for it, then asked me for a restart. Keep in mind that it froze before and after this. I was just lucky getting into windows at that one time.

Hmm, it sounds like it's overclocking/undervolting. Which would be a BIOS issue, that one would have thought would be solved by a CMOS reset. If your MB manufacturer lists it as compatible with that chip, maybe worth an e-mail to them?

Why would it be overclocking if I never set it that way. Also, I have my current processor running at stock speeds. How would I do a CMOS reset?
