Question about Dell Optiplex GX110 (2909T) Motherboard
I am trying to upgrade pentium3 733mhz to 1.4ghz when I switch cpus and try to power on I get a orange light and nothing else .My bios is a08 does that have anything to do with it?
The 1.4 GHz chips are Tualatin cores- they use a different voltage than your previous chips and as such you would need an adapter that fits between your socket and that CPU... It is very bad for that chip and your motherboard to continue trying to run is as-is so I would stop powering it up with it in there immediately if you already haven't done so. I'm in the same boat as you with an Optiplex gx110 that I really love, but I'm stuck with my 933 [Which by the way you COULD run up to a 1 GHz PIII Coppermine in that thing] and my 1.4 sitting on the desk until I find a suitable adapter on eBay or something.... Once I have the adapter, I still don't know if the bios will play nice.
Hope this helps at least a little!

I have this system and was successful upgrading the processor. The key to success is downgrading the BIOS to version A05. Once this has been done you can install the new processor and enjoy.

one bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
hope this helps
