Upgraded 800Ghz G4 to a Dual 1Ghz G4 Processor with Kernal Panic?

I removed the 800Ghz G4 Processor then Replaced upgraded to Dual 1Ghz G4 Processor.

The system started with the Apple Chime and OSX 10.5.6 but then I received a kernel panic screen with errors.

Is this a OSX software nightmare?

Does the Operating System think it is trying to boot to a Single Processor? and gets confused about the Dual Processor? or was I supposed to change some settings via the sautering? scheme I have seen?

Please help....

I get White Buttons and the system just runs quiet.......

How do I get it to REINSTALL the OSX CD?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I would wipe it out and restore. But on a side note, did you reapply thermal grease for the new CPU?

no I did not.....is that needed? I didn't see any grease on either processor...but I would like to follow your process as I have heard that too on other system builds.......I didn't see it on this one.

I can find it at Fry's I am sure....

but can you please please tell me how to wipe it out and restore...

if the computer is not responsive....I mean I should have placed the CD in the Drive when I had the APPLE showing before the KERNAL PANIC.....

Now all I get is White Button and FAN noise.......

So I am unsure how to get back to the process of making the computer first OPEN The CD DOOR so I can PUT a CD INTO IT.....and then allowing it....

The keyboard seems unresponsive....so does the mouse....

Before it was in the programmers setting at Kernal Panic but Frozen....

So I shut down by pressing the power button.

Now when I repress the inside button for 30 secs........after unplug ofcourse....

I was going to try to RESET PRAM by holding the keys PRAM but again....I was not getting any response just the system turns on......

What should I do next to reinstall the OSX software?

thanks

Sorry about the late reply... I've been busy with school. Thermal grease is a MUST. It helps the heat dissipate from the CPU to the heatsink, without it you're going to overheat and possibly damage your computer. Getting it semi-responsive will have to be the first step.

Well I need to get the grease and re apply it and

What do I do if it is just giving me the white buttons?

Nothing?

I had another Mac do this to me too

I dunno what to do at this point

Instead of putting the old processor back

Do you in fact know if there is a problem with switching out a single processor to a DUo processor type configuration

The OSX was expecting the setup from the last restart

But I pushed the button inside the thing

Unplugged and many 30sec pauses

Holding the button

Even waiting a few days

Not powering this thing up again until I heard from you and had the grease on the CPU or tried replacing the other CPU to see if that was the issue

I really need the dual processor to work

I didn't leave the unit on very long when I tested it

As soon as the kernel panic happens I shut down but then I get that white button upon trying to start up again

What next?

Do I need clean harddrive in there? No OSX

How do I get it to respond to CDRom install?

If I just get white button and then nothing ?

I had the same problem and I checked the model and the processor was incompatible. Check the model and see if a dual GHz cpu is supported.
