View Full Version : Celeron 500 on Digial pc3500

I have decided to replace the Pentium II 266 in my Digital pc3500 with a Celeron 500, but it reports at startup as a Pentium Pro 366 and then locks up. If I disable the cache memory in the bios it will run, but very slowly. The motherboard documentation says it will accept up to a 533 chip and I have loaded the most recent bios from Digital. Any suggestions? Thanks. james

First, does the manual say it supports Celerons.

Also check your jump settings, you may need to also set voltage, bus speed (66Mhz), multiplier (8x).
