Finding compatible motherboard for new CPU.

I found some old documentation for my motherboard and I'm pretty sure now that the upgraded CPU I bought is incompatible (too fast) for the motherboard (althought I'm going to try some of the suggested tests because according to the CPU specs it should work). So now I am trying to find another motherboard that will work with the new CPU, but no one seems to have any documentation on these older and now obsolete motherboards. Can anyone help? The CPU is an AMD Athlon XP 2600 (266MHz, Socket A) Part Number AXDA2600DKV3C. I would like a motherboard similar to my current one if possible, an Abit KR7A, but one that will handle the new CPU (obviously). Thanks.

I want to upgrade the mother board in my Vaio PCV-RZ44G Desktop so that I can run Windows 8. What board forms are compatible and is an Intel I3 or I5 CPU better?


You would be better off applying the money to a new computer. You are opening "Pandora's Box" . You will end up with a old case with ALL new components. That may or may not work, A.K.A., "pain and heartache".

I want to install a new motherboard what should i buy


Your motherboard is the main component to your computer, so if you're thinking of re-using your RAM and CPU, you'll have to make sure you get a motherboard with the same RAM type (ex. if you have DDR2 RAM, you'll have to get a DDR2 motherboard) and the same CPU socket. My recommendation is that you find a motherboard that fits inside your tower, and buy a processor and RAM that is compatible with your new motherboard. If your hard drives are SATA connections, you should be able to reuse those on a new motherboard, but if they are IDE (big, flat wire) then you'll need to made sure the new board can accommodate your IDE hard drives. CD ROMs are also mainly SATA now, so if you have an IDE CD rom drive and IDE hard drives, it will be difficult to find a NEW motherboard with more than one IDE connection, meaning you'll have to change jumper settings, or simply buy a SATA CD-rom drive.
As far as software goes, you'll most likely have to reinstall your operating system if the upgrade is a substantial one. Video card is another thing to consider. Your motherboard might be using the older AGP technology, whereas new motherboards are useing PCIe connections. So to sum it up, when you upgrade your motherboard, it affects a lot of other hardware, but if you simply swap your motherboard with something compatible with the rest of your hardware, it isn't really an upgrade.

You need to first make sure that the motherboard is compatible with the new CPU you will be installing. Usually motherboards are not compatible with different CPUs.

I want to upgrade the motherboard in my Sony VAIO VGC-RC110G PC Desktop. Is this possible or does sony use a nonstandard configured motherboard?


Hi:
I have only worked on one of these Sony desktops, and it is really very proprietary, where you would be better off buying a new case to install a new motherboard in. The sony looks really slick, but everything about it is odd: The power supply, the cooling fan for the cpu, etc. It would be a lot easier to save what you can and move it to a new project!

I have an old Hitachi Visiondesk 2520. I wanted


Yes, many.

That motherboard is from the "Windows 98" era, but Microsoft _has_ tested it with Windows 2000, and found that it is compatible.

+-----------------------------

The Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) contains products that have passed testing with Windows 2000.
Not every computer and/or device has been tested in all possible configurations.
Visit the Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs web site at http://www.microsoft.com/hcl/ for the latest compatibility information and to download and install drivers for the hardware listed.

One eBay seller is offering RAM (PC100/PC133) for your motherboard:
http://cgi.ebay.com.hk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220317703040

So, your most-difficult part will be finding a "new" (or "previously-owned") motherboard that comes WITH a face-plate, e.g.,

http://www.hitechlegion.com/images/stories/HowTo_BuildCustomPC/24.jpg

that has the same "perimiter" dimensions as the face-plate connected to your current motherboard.

So, you could try to find a much-older motherboard that is compatible with current RAM, or you could try an older motherboard, such as one with a Pentium 4 CPU, that takes DDR266/DDR333/DDR400 RAM, or you could try a not-so-old motherboard that takes 'DDR2' RAM.

Newer motherboards will have integrated-sound, integrated-video, and integrated-networking, so that your current sound-card, video-card, and network-card won't be needed.

Acer Veriton M464 E4700 2.6Mhz cpu upgrade on MCP730 Mobo


Go to www.newegg.com and whatever you want to upgrade click on that item and match it up with your current board (by looking at the specifications and matching them). I suggest to buy a new mobo and all new processors and ram. You can use your old case, hard drive and all that good stuff that is removable.

Upgrading my Acer Aspire M1641 Desktop graphics card


The motherboard will support any PCI Express x16 or PCI Express 2.0 x16 video cards. Your main concern should be with the power supply since it is either a 300w or 250w.

Here is a pretty good choice for your price range:
http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=8&l3=725&l4=0&model=2328&modelmenu=1

Input your info here to see if you need a power supply upgrade.
http://support.asus.com/PowerSupplyCalculator/PSCalculator.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

A little money for system memory would be good if you have less than 1 Gig.
You can test it here:
http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner/index.aspx

If you are saving money by not buying a motherboard and want to spend it (which is what I would do), I would put the money into a the video card and power supply.
Like this:
http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=2&l2=8&l3=726&l4=0&model=2705&modelmenu=1

And this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Netzteil-Corsair-620W-ATX-2-2/dp/B000KJNK8U/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1248740669&sr=1-10

I do not know the dimensions of the Aspire Case, so one thing to keep in mind is the dimensions of the card and the power supply. Make sure they will fit before buying.

If you start replacing motherboards and such, you might as well just go with a whole new system. A new motherboard, new CPU, new memory, new graphics, new power supply, fast hard drives, new case.

Upgrade cpu


It is a bit of a crapshoot trying to upgrade a processor from a major manufacturer. Their motherboards are designed specifically for the manufacturer and documentation on exactly what will work NOW compared to when the unit was new is rather hard to come by. They don't support people upgrading very well compared to the aftermarket manufacturers.

You should go to dell.com and put in your service tag to check your exact configuration yourself before spending any money.

According to Dell, the Dimension 5150 has a motherboard that uses the Intel 945G Express chipset. You can see INTEL'S documentation on that chipset's capabilities here. According to that documentation you can use a socket LGA775 with up to a 1066 MHz system bus speed.

Looking at Newegg, the fastest LGA775 processor with 1066 MHz are a 2.93GHz Duo core or a 2.4 GHz quad core. Again, no guarantees either will work with your system, and you definately want to make sure your power supply and case cooling are up to the task.
