Hi, was wondering if anyone could help me out with a problem, im having after installing a cpu? I recently bought a pentium 3 866 MHZ 133 slot 1 proccesor off ebay. I have an old dell precision 220, that had a pentium 3 733 MHZ proccesor in it. I removed the old proccesor and popped in the new one. I booted up my computer and i received a screen that said boot to last known good configuration, or safe mode etc. i booted to last good, and the computer procceded to reboot again so i hit F2 and went into the bios, everything looked good, it read the new proccesor, and everything, so i exited out and it took me back to the last good config screen i booted to that and it started to load windows after it did a scan. windows came up and all my files and everything were there, i thought great it actually worked, but then i got that error, from microsoft telling me to send a report because there was a serious system error, i clicked no and then the computer rebooted, after that the same thing happens over and over again, as soon as i click no on the send error report the computer reboots, it goes to a blue screen with a list of errors for 1/2 a second not even long enough to read one word, and restarts over and over again. Does anyone have any ideas? If i leave the send error report window open and dont close it. my computer will stay on and i can surf the web and click and run any other programs, but something is just not right with the cpu. has any one had this problem? Is there something i should do on the mobo, or in the bios? I am new to this. please help?
Thanks for any info
