Case upgrade for Dell Dimension 4100

I'm in the process of upgrading the case for a Dimension 4100 due to the original case being damaged. However, when I went to connect the new case's power button, led's etc. to the motherboard I found that Dell in their wisdom have neglected to mark the motherboard with what goes where. Anybody have any idea about what terminals should be connected to what(power button, power led, hdd led etc.)? Ta much

Re: Case upgrade for Dell Dimension 4100

I upgraded a friends pc and had the same issue but i solved it very simply see go out and buy a new case but before you do look at the floor model look at the connectors now most cases come with a atx universal plug it's something new i noticed and i just plugged in the plug now depending on the style you might have to reposition ( key it to the terminals) the plug to get the proper sequence but rest assure it is not that difficult did it to a friends dell and it works perfect no problems what so ever give it a try

Re: Case upgrade for Dell Dimension 4100

The easiest thing to do it is look at your motherboard and make a note of the manufacturer and model/version number, as Dell don't make their own boards. Go to the manufacturers web site and search for the manual probably in PDF format and download it and look for the relevent power button connections.

What is the maximum ram capacity of dimension 8200 motherboard

2 gygabytoes are usually the max, you could upgrade the OS to maybe Windows XP 64 bit, but this isn't worth it in such an olde machine! Throw it out and get yourself an ASUS laptop with Windows 7 64-bit, a solid state HD and 4 or more gigabytes of ram instead!.

I want to upgrade my ram on the dimension 4500. how do i open the computer to replace the 256mb with 2 each 512mb chips

unplug your pc from power.
on the back of your case there are two screws on the right. one top and one at the bottom. unscrew these and remove the side of the case.
then you will see the motherboard. to remove the rams there are two plastics on each end of the ram. push them aside and remove the ram.
see here for video

Help to upgrade memory of Dell Dimension 8100

Im sure you mean 1GB of ram.

Upgrading ram is possibly the easiest upgrade to a pc.Firstly shut down the computer and remove the wall plug.

Remove the casing
Make sure you touch something metal away from the case before entering the chassis of the computer... anti static wristbands are good.

As soon as you open the case you will see the dimm slots where the ram goes.

You will find two plastic clips on each ram module, just pull these back to release the ram and insert the new ram.You may need to push firmly down to lock them in.The clips will auto lock.

Just be careful not to push to hard as to damage the mainboard.

Dell Dimension 4300 PC Processor upgrade

if the sci36-r13 is the stock mobo that came with that pc it isnt worth upgrading
pentium 4's use the LGA-775 socket this is compatible with all pentiums and core 2's (not includeing core i7), so you could put in a core 2 quad if you wanted to but it would not make much difference to performance because your motherboard would not be able to handle some of the fetures
your ram would also reduce preformance

if you wanted to upgrade that computer you would have to replace everything but maybe the case

Upgrade a dell dimension 4500-p3 motherboard to a duo or quad motherboard

You can do this with case modification as well as a new psu as Dell used proprietary mb's, psu's & cases on this model Dimension. To tell you the truth it would probably be cheaper and easier to pick up a core2duo or quad barebones kit than trying to modify the Deimension. Just my opinion. Remember Dell psu's are not wired the same as industry standard and their motherboartds in these older units are not top quality. Hope this helps you out.

Upgrading BTX Motherboard

Hi, I think you are looking at the front USB pin aray connector. The on/off switch and LED light pins are usualy along the edge of the board nearest the front of the case. They will be marked with ID: lettering:- pwrs, hdd led, rs-sw, pwr led. If your case has one block plug you will haave to gently seperate the segments and plug them on one at a time. The power and reset switch will work either way but the LED will only work when plugged the right way around, it wont do any harm if they are plugged backwards they just wont work, so experiment. regards mistyman
