    hi every body

    i have celeron 2.0 ghz cpu with 8vm533 GIGABYTE mobo
    i have increased the FSb from 100 to 110 and get the cpu to 2.2 ghz
    then when i tried more the system go hang ..
    i think that i should increase the cpu voltage .. the current cpu is 1.525v
    but the bios doesnt give me any option to change the voltage so how could i do that ..?

    I HAVE ALREADY TRIED CTRL F1 TO HAVE THE ABITLITY TO INCREASE THE FSB BUT I DIDNT SEE ANY THING RELATED TO V CORE ALTHOUGH I CAN SEE THE V CORE CORRESPONDING TO 1.55 V IN THE BIOS , BUT I CANT INCREASE IT ,?!

    I'll go ahead and ask the obvious question...

    Have you read the manual?

    First off, PLEASE DON'T YELL... IT IS TERRIBLY RUDE!

    Now, as to your question, yes the manual will tell you how to make adjustments to the settings available to you within the system BIOS. That is why they make the manual to begin with. There is generally an entire chapter dedicated to BIOS settings, what your options are, and what the settings do for you. If the manual does not cover this setting, then it is likely your particular board doesn't support the voltage changes. Though your board looks to be just a little dated (seems to be a 533MHz model from the nomenclature you give), Gigabyte has been putting VCore setting adjustments in their BIOS settings for a long time.

    I have only owned 2 gigabyte motherboards, both for AMD processors (GA-7VAXP KT400 chipset, and GA-7NNXP nForce2 u400 chipset), but they both allowed you to change the voltage, both in the BIOS and with their EasyTune program

    edit: and they both also showed where to do it, in the BIOS section of the Manual

    Now on page 27 of the 8vm533 manual (1st page of BIOS Setup chapter) it states, "If you require more advanced BIOS settings, please go to "Advanced BIOS" setting menu. To enter Advanced BIOS setting, press "Ctrl+F1" key on the BIOS screen.", then near the bottom of the next page, "<img src="http://www.tweaktown.com/forums/images/icons/icon4.gif"> If you can't find the setting you want, please press "Ctrl+F1" to search the advanced option widden.", yes bad English but that's how it comes straight from the English manual. Now if ya can't find that settin' there then ya don't have it but the manual doesn't show that particular BIOS page.
