Yes , like you said the only difference is the type of memory: one uses DDR the PC100/PC133
Of course DDR is better . The Processor socket is the 478 on both.

The only question would be if it's going into a proprietary case like a Dell, HP or Compaq, so on. Or is it going into an "clone" case. Some proprietary units have the front panel connections in one connector.

Yes, but will work only if you put a right cpu processor (FSB).
Because you have different FSB (533in one and 400 in another)
Both are socket 478, same AGP slot 4x

I have a dell 20" LCD monitor. But Presario S4000V doesn't fit for that monitor. Please let me know what can i do. Change "Video card"? thanks


Have you tried changing the Resolution settings to "Recommended"? If so, then you may have to purchase a newer Video Card. Look-up your motherboard 1st, then go by the Recommendations of the motherboards BRAND and Chipset of Video Cards. If you have nVidia Chipset, get GeForce or nVidia card, VIA, SiS work fine w/ these (nVidia Chipsets) Video Cards. But, if the motherboard is of Intel Manuf, you will want the ATI card. Get at least a 256MB Memory card(512MB is better) and read-up on the cards resolution to make sure it fits your screen size/dimensions. Good Luck. To find out your motherboard type/brand, dwnld. CPU-Z for free online. It will tell you about your CPU, Motherboard, Memory, and alot more.

Check the condensators. If there are not any blown condensators or leakage, keep the video card (or at least the one on board if any) and remove all the other cards, also the memory. Check the CPU with a known good motherboard. If the CPU is ok begin by adding the memory, one bar at a time (you may alternate the slot also). If the computer do not start the motherboard is defective . If the computer starts but no sound is heard motherboard could be defective. Try to install a previously checked memory. If you do not get any signal the board is dead. If you get video signal, add one card at a time until you identify the bad component.

Dell 4600 no monitor signal


Hey Tony,
If you haven't already: pull all pci cards:
If you pull the ram, and you get no beeps at post, it's likely the main board. Does the pc beep at all? with or without ram? If not, likely the main board. Sorry. Hope this helps...

Replacing Motherboard


There are things to consider when buying a motherboard.
  1. The type of processor you are using must fit on your new motherboard (compatibility issues)
  2. Memory.
Better ask your local store for a compatible motherboard. Unless your going to buy the same board .

If your purchase a new motherboard it comes with a instruction manual complete with installation guidelines and illustration to help you out. In case you have trouble doing so you can always contact your vendor or the manufacturer for help (online, toll free numbers).

If your having doubts whether your motherboard is defective you can run tests but you will need extra parts. You could ask your friends if they have one. In my case I usually test other components ex. processor, memory with a spare working motherboard. Fit in the componenets with your spare motherboard and if it runs chances are your suspected board is defective. Or better have it checked at another service center for a 2nd opinion.

Motherboard


Are you trying to install the Dell Media Card Reader? If so then the other end of the ?FlexBay USB cable that plugs into the card reader goes into a small rectangular connector towards the back of the motherboard. Specifically orient as follows; place the computer on its side, the power supply to your left and the front of the computer facing towards you. Starting at the back of the motherboard next to the power supply follow the back edge of the motherboard till you come to the approximate center of the board. About an inch towards you there will be a rectangular connector the FlexBay USB cable end should fit into. If this isn?t the cable from the Dell Media Card Reader let us know and we?ll try to help, otherwise please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Turns on, then shuts down before anything shows on monitor


I am an IT Tech of 11 years, I have found this problem and have solved this problem on the Gateway machines. Also works on the Gigabyte, ECS and Biostar motherboards in the same machine/s. It is not the memory, video, hard drive, or processor so rest assured. This is relatively an easy fix for those that are tech friendly. Remove the retarded one plug front panel power plug, remove the pins for the reset button and that does it. How you fix it from this point is up to you totally, but that does fix the problem. It is a common and frequent problem that mass producers have when developing wiring for them.
