If it recognizes the processor as the correct one I would load the OS on there and run it like that to make sure everything is working right for a few days.

After that you can start changing things in the bios like disabling the Com Ports if your not using them.

newbie, please try and keep all of your issues with your motherboard in one thread, reposting all over the place only confuses the hell out of everybody.

Thanky you.............:winkgrin:

I assume you mean "Asus CDRW" there. newbie, it's hard for us to give you a complete set of BIOS settings in a place such as this, there are typically so many variables. Fortunately with so few devices in your box, if the P4PC800 BIOS is anything like the P4C800-E, almost all the defaults will work fine for you.

After setting time/date, I would make sure the Boot-- Boot Device Priority is set to CD-Floppy-HDD, that's the minimum you should need to do. Personal preference, I would also disable the HyperThreading if it's not grayed out. If you hook up more peripherals later, there may be more adjustments at that time.
