Yes you need to reload if possible the latest drivers for all of your computer components so they will be working fine with this new processor that you have , since the new processor is much higher than the original so it will be better if you can update or reinstall using the latest drivers for all of it...

What CPUs can I update the system


You have a AMD Mobo, You can ONLY use AMD processors, A list can be found here: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12605_div/12605_div.HTML BE ADVISED, if you haven't done a CPU upgrade before, do some research and crossreference with the Mobo Manufacturer's specs, keep in mind components work together. One component may not give the preformance you expect. That said, it's a easy upgrade along with extra Memory, 4GB for 32bit, more for 64bit, Faster,7200rpm's, HDD and another HDD is inexpensive and easy. Most can be found on Ebay for little money.

Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

Which intel motherboard ( model detatil) is suitable for an intel dual core 2.6 Ghz processor?also what should be the capacity of ram that may suitably mathe the intel dual core 2.6 Ghz processor?


Assuming the CPU you have is an E5300 2.6 duo 45nm then use an LGA 775 mobo.

For Win XP / Vista run at LEAST 2gb (Preferably 4GB) Ensure the mobo specs are compatible with the type of ram also.

I am trying to replace my motherboard with the exact same one but can't find what I need to order it. I've done searches but keep finding different answers.


From my searching I find that it is a Nvidia 520LE.

With much tact and diplomacy, I would like to 'talk' to you straight up.

That motherboard is junk.
The motherboard is just an ordinary, ATX form factor motherboard. The most common used form factor size, used in personal computers.
Uses the Nvidia nForce 4 chipset.

By the time you buy an exact replacement motherboard, you will have spent the same, or more, than you could spend for a much better motherboard. (That will fit! Only the I/O shield at the back of the computer, may not line up with the motherboard below. The motherboard does come with an I/O shield anyway)

I found from my recent search also this motherboard,
1.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135075&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Motherboards+-+AMD-_-ECS+%28EliteGroup%29-_-13135075

$70 US.
Instead of the Socket 939 processor socket, or AM2 processor socket, you have now, you will have an AM2+ processor socket.
If your processor you have now, is an AM2 processor socket model, it will work on this motherboard.

Your ram memory won't work. You have DDR ram memory. This motherboard uses DDR2 at 800MHz. (Or also can use DDR2 at 1066MHz)
This = a PLUS!

You can buy 2GB's of DDR2 ram memory that operates at 800MegaHertz, for $30 at Tigerdirect. (Patriot Dual Channel-PC6400. It's two ->1GB sticks of dual channel capable ram)

Uses the AMD (Nvidia based) 780G Northbridge chip, and the AMD SB700 Southbridge chip.

Here are the specifications of this motherboard straight from ECS,

Hardware upgrade required for autocad 2009


Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

Processor update..


The problem with Store bought PCs is that there is no way to tell how fast a proccessor you can safely put into one before it becomes overclocking, but in theory your exact motherboard should support an AMD Athlon X2 5800+ 1000 Mhz FSB. Now if your willing to take a risk, you could buy a 6400+ but be warned, the computer may not recognize it, or it may just underclock the proccessor, if the processor supports 800 Mhz FSB. I said the 1000 Mhz FSB because it can underclock to that speed, and also because they no longer offer 800 Mhz flavors at the sites i order from. Hope that helps.
