does your motherboard and chipset support the 100 Mghz front side bus?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

thanks for replyin Dachew!
anyway i think i got messed up! i read some tutorial in other site that if you're uprgrading your CPU and if it's not working you should try to change something ing the BIOS setup, the one with CPU/SDRAM/"i forgot this one", it have some selection there like
65/133/33

100/133/33
etc..

and for some reason, i changed the settings to 100/133/33 and then save and exit, and when i restarted, it's not booting anymore even i tried to put back my old 600mhz cpu... this is totally mess!!!

is there any way to come back again in the BIOS settings? so i can make it in default settings.
please help me with this! thanks

google clear cmos and your motherboard

you can also pull the power plug, wait and remove the cmos battery, wait a while then replace

If you go to the motherboard's web site you should be able to find what CPUs it supports. What motherboard are you using?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Well...what was the model # and manufacturer of the original PC you own? For example, eMachines T3418, Dell Dimension 550, etc.

And what made you think you could upgrade this system...and where did you get the idea that the processor you purchased would work?

hi Louis, my pc is -IBM Aptiva E series 50 M-
i've done some modification on this pc, like the memory, video card, HD and i also updated it's BIOS, so i think it's time to upgrade the CPU now, i thought if the processor that im goin to replace have the same pin,(in my case it's 370 PGA2) it will work just fine, i never thought it has some mobo compatibility issue.
and also the CPU is second hand when i bought it, is it possible that it has some damage that's why it's not working?
thanks!

I had to do some digging, since IBM does not offer any info anymore about them, it seems that the system had the highest processor it will support in it initially.
