Hello guys,<br><br>
I just bought an Intel P4 2.66Hhz, LGA775 (566Mhz) and I've installed it to a Asus P5VD1-X motherboard.<br><br>
Everytime the computer loads up (NO Opertating System), it keeps giving me this error: "Intel CPU uCode Loading Error" - "Press F1 To Resume".<br><br>
I don't understand? Where have i gone wrong? The bios of the Mboard recognizes the CPU, it currently states "Intel P4 @ 2.66Ghz, 566Mhz FSB".<br><br>
Please Help,<br><br>
I will appreciate the service<br><br>

1st off, your processor has 533FSB, not 566. If your motherboard says it is 566, there is something wrong (bug or something else) Now, you have an intresting motherboard, it is a PCIe AGP combo board which is definitly bound to have problems. What is your graphics card? Is it AGP or PCIe? Your problem probably lies within your GFX card because of your motherboard.

Yes! update the bios, I was about to recommend that. If you update that, It will probably give a lot of added support to gfx cards and new processors released by intel.<br><br>
Edit: also, do you know what your intel spec # is? Because the latest 506 released supports EM64T. <a href="http://processorfinder.intel.com/scripts/list.asp?ProcFam=483&NoNav=NO&CorSpd=5466&SysBusSpd=5419&MfgTech=6591&step=ALL&cache=ALL&PkgType=7021&btnFOS=Filter+on+selections" target="_blank">here</a>

WOWZA,<br><br>
The Intel Spec Numbers are:<br><br>
Pentium 4 Processor 506, LGA775<br>
2.66Ghz, 1MB L2-Cache, 533 Mhz FSB<br><br>
Yes, it is 506... could that be the problem? because i've been to an Asus Support forum and everyone says to update the BIOS because the motherboard does not recognize the new CPU model, which in this case is: Intel P4 506.<br><br>
See if you can help any further, thanks for the service.<br><br>

wait, I know the specs, but do you know what the spec # is? (It is on the processor, and on the side of the box) it is either, SL7YU or SL85U or SL8J8. That's what I need, then I can tell you exactly what's wrong <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

WOWZA,<br><br>
Or i could just try upgrading my BIOS, plus enable the cpu microcode update setting in my MB BIOS..<br><br>
That sounds reasonable?<br><br>
Thanks,<br><br>

re: above question<br><br>
I think it's the bios, but I want to be 100% shure this is a bios problem before you do anything.

I'm getting the same "intel cpu ucode loading error" on boot. I have an Asus P5MT-M and a Intel Pentium D 3.0GHz 830 dual core CPU. Everything seems to work fine, but this is a server and I'm afraid something might be reducing performance.<br><br>
This happened before any operating system was installed, and most references I find are to do with the OS. But, just for your info, I have Windows 2003 installed, with SP1.<br><br>
I have updated to the newest BIOS from the Asus website, no change. I've tried CPU Fan1 and CPU Fan2, no change. I've tried every CPU option in almost every configuration in the CMOS setup, no change. If I turn off the error notification, it just goes past, but the error still shows, just don't have to push F1.<br><br>
Any other ideas?<br><br>
Thanks.

I have the same problem! Intel has changed the stepping of new series of their CPUs as 830. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown">

I have the same problem: "Intel CPU ucode loading error". I'm with ASUS P5MT-M motherboard,with latest BIOS and Intel PentiumD 830. I've tried ANYTHING but no changes - "Intel CPU ucode loading error". What you think, could be from the stepping? My CPU is from new series of Intel's CPUs and I notised that the stepping is different from older CPUs.<br><br>
I think this is from the bios.

Wow, that's a lot of cases. My guess would be your motherboards (expecially the Asus boards) don't support the latest steppings Intel is comming out with. (which is very strange). Humm, I'd say trade your processor for a older stepping? Most of these cases seem SOL. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Frown">
