I think I fried a Celeron and its motherboard

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have(or had) a intel celeron @1.7 ghz FSB100mhz skt478 I went to the bios and i wantd to give him a boots...so...i started changing the cpu ratio...it was in 8.0x and i changed it to 10x...
i rebooted it posted...hurray for me...
bur then after the winXP HE bar started bang! blue screen
i thought why not change it a little more?
and i think i made my first mistake rigth HERE
so i went for 16x and it posted again..
but yet the same problem...bue screen
HERE i think it was my secund mystake...
i thought wath the hell lets do this...i went for 22x ratio...and it posted
but still blue screen...
i though it migth be the hard drive that was damaged...so i went to get an other Hard drive....
when i came back i pluged the hard drive...pressed the power Sw with my screw driver...and nothing...
i have an other pentium skt 478 intel pentium4 3.0ghz fsb800
so i changed them
i used my pentium4 and its cooler in the celerons motherboard and nothing...the fan rotate...the celerons fan didnt...just kinda give gived an impulse...i tried the celeron in my Asrock of my pemtium4...and its the same if i didnt had a processor...
the celeron doent even heat up...(the pemtium in the celerons motherboard does..)
the wird thing it that it was all working wen i left....

Umm, are you joking or..., you cant jump from 8x-22x, definetly if your getting bsod's. If you get bsod's you always lower the clock. And your supposed to do it in small ncrements.

Welcome to the forums.

Try clearing the CMOS of the motherboard in question. You can do that either with a jumper or by removing the battery on the motherboard for 30 or so seconds.

It sounds like you're trying to change the multiplier on the CPU, which is something you can't do on the vast majority of Intel CPUs. The motherboard is probably very confused, and thus it won't boot. Setting everything back to the defaults may help.

The multiplier for your CPU is 17x (1700 MHz/100 MHz = 17), so I'm not quite sure where you're getting the numbers you cited in your post. Assuming you can get it booted back up, you'll want to change the clock speed by very small increments (arounds 3 MHz at a time). Please read through the Intel overclocking guide linked in my signature. It has lots of useful information.

so basically none of them are fried rigth?
but i already tried to take of the batery and changed the jumper...and yet nothing happened...the celeron isent working in my other motherboard...i really dont know why...and i already tried to place my pentium4 3.0 and nothing...
but anyway thanx ill read the overclocking intel cpu again and ill increment it slowly...
i just suposed it migth had fried...but it was all working when i left...and if she is confused...OK...better for me i have a laptop...at 1.1ghz a friend told me to overclock it...since he has a computer shop and all iam really hesitant between changing it or not...i always suposed that laptops arent suposed to overclock because of the low cooling capacities...it doesnt have many ventilation...
should i do what he told me and overclock it???
one last question about the other celeron(1.7)...if the cpu is alrigth why doesnt it run in my other board and vice versa??

tnhax a milion you guys are realy helping me...

There's no guarantee that things didn't fry, but sometimes a CMOS reset can do wonders. If that didn't work for you, there's a good chance something is damaged. Try hooking up just the motherboard, power supply, one stick of RAM, and the CPU (and video card, if applicable) and see if it'll do anything. Then try removing the CPU and booting. You should (obviously) get an error which most often comes in the form of a pattern of beeps. If you get beeps without the CPU, it's a good indication that the motherboard is fine and that the CPU is damaged. Repeat that process except with the RAM missing, and see if you get beeps.

As long as you didn't change the voltage to the CPU to a very high level, it's hard to believe that the CPU fried. Stranger things have been known to happen, though.
