Uppgrade of processor!

Hey!
I have a Prescot pentium 4 2,93 Gzh processor in my computer. My question is if I can uppgrade with any stronger P4 or if it must be a Prescot. I also wonder if there is any other kind of procesor I could use than P 4 and which one in that case would be the optimal. My computer has a 775 socket.
Packard Bell says that my motherboard also supports Intel Pentium D Dual Core Technology. What does it mean? Is it the same as Intel Core 2 duo?

Looks like that mobo can only suppoport up to 53 mhz front side bus for a celeron d processor
wht tht means is tht u can get any cpu tht has the front side bus up to 533mhz with the 775 socket forur motherboard

and forpentium 4 its 800mhz and agian any cpu with up to 800 mhz front side bus and 775



so ur best cpu for tht mobo would be the SL7RR it supports hyperthreading


here a direct link to intel'ssite

http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL7RR

SL7RR
3.40 GHz
800 MHz

SOURCE: Uppgrade to a faster processor?

Hi 
Pentuim D is a processor that has 2 x cpu in one and a core 2 duo has 2 cpu's plus 1 smart core bigger cache 
you can only upgrade to a E2140 or E2180 processor on that motherboard 
OR replace the board with a newer type

If you want to work the actual speed for the processor of a dual core take the speed for example dual core 1.8 x 2.1 =3.78 GHz 
Core 2 Duo  1.8 x 2.4 = 4.32 GHz

After a firmware uppgrade my MP3 player does not work anymore


I had this same problem - I have a US model of the H320 - You have to update the firmware, but the US model only got to 1.04 and it sucks - go to http://www.misticriver.net/wiki/index.php/H3xx_Firmware_Version_Information
and download the KOREAN version 1.31 version - it supports the US model. Once youupdate the firme ware on your H320, you will have to go the the main menu and switch the language to english. Once I did this the DRM problem dissappeared.

Uppgrade of processor!


Either there is a problem with the physical fitting of the processor, or the motherboard is not equipped to handle said processor, even with a bios revision.

Uppgrade of a processor


The processor upgrade defends on your motherboard if it supports a processor like Core2Duo, because it all depedns on the motherboard if you can upgrade processor and RAM ,if you buy a new processor and its not supported by your motherboard it will be a wast, but if your computer manufacturer told you that your motherboard can supports a processor like Core2Duo go ahead upgrade to it , that will definitely make teh computer faster and better sicne Core2Duo is a high end processor right now..

Hope that helps...........

Processor uppgrade!


Alright, this depends on the BIOS on the motherboard and if it will support these chips. Best thing you can do is physically call or email the manufacturer of the motherboard.

Some motherboards will support any 775 processors (aside from the Xeon types that were made on the 775 design). Bios Revisions add support for different processors. However, many motherboards can't even support the Dual core setup at all, as it is like having dual processors and the bios just won't understand how to support this.

So, whatever you're trying to upgrade; get in contact with the manufacturer and find out if it will support the chip you're wanting.

Upgrading my laptop processor


hey, your best bet is upgrading the ram, if its ddr 2 will cost about 25-30 pounds for a extra gb, which will make it run a bit smoother. noone ever upgrades processors on laptops as your usually restricted to what u can uppgrade it too or costs too much.
i would suggest the memory upgrade...

if i can help anymore just ask..

All the best
