Try removing all cards (except vid unless onboard), connections, mem and see if there is any change. I would expect beeping at this point, then power off and insert 1 mem module. If you get any display at this point, start reconnecting things one at a time powering off between.

It sounds like the motherboard is damaged. Did you try to start with a boot cd? Or will it just not get to the bios setup screen?

Processor upgrade


Foluwa,
You can go here: http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/my_systems_info/details?c=us&l=en&s=gen&~tab=2, and enter your service tag number (would have done it for you if it was posted) and you'll get your systems configuration and should be able to determine *********** Board, Socket, and max Processor that it will support.
Good luck.

Problem with out of memory box when editing video with Ulead 11 plus


Hi Dave,

A couple of suggestions:
1. increase your swap file/virtual memory to roughly double your physical memory;
2. defrag your main hard drive;
3. while running Ulead, disable temporarily your anti-virus (and your net connection);
4. Trim/slim down your startup files (msconfig);
5. select "Adjust for best performance" in your Performance Options (System properties);
6. Verify that you do not have any virus or malwares lurking somewhere.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

New processor needed


Hi, For Dimension 3000 system here are your options. Pentium IV 3.2 GHz 533 / 800 MHz FSB Pentium IV 3.0 GHZ 533 / 800 MHz FSB Pentium IV 2.8 GHz 533 / 800 MHz FSB but what i'm worried about is the socket where the process goes into. for thermal issues it is expected for the socket to CHIP CREEP. Chip creep refers to the problem of chips that, over time, would work their way out of the socket. Chip creep occurred due to thermal expansion; the contracting and expanding during system heat up and cool down. you might end up replacing the mobo as well.

Cpu upgrade dell dimension 5100


Hi, according to the Dell website you have a LGA775 socket on your motherboard. Therefore, you can only buy processors that fit into this socket. Here is a list of some offered by Intel that will work: Celeron D 325 2.53 GHz Celeron D 330 2.66 GHz Celeron D 335 2.8 GHz Celeron D 340 2.93 GHz Pentium4 520 2.8 GHz Pentium4 530 3.0 GHz Pentium4 540 3.2GHz Pentium4 550 3.4 GHz Pentium4 560 3.6 GHz Pentium4 570 3.8 GHz The processors that won't work are the ones that are not compatible with this socket. Everytime you look up a cpu it will tell you which socket it is designed for. To buy a cpu you will need to decide: The brand you want. The speed of the cpu that you want. Extras i.e. Hyperthreading, etc. How much you are willing to pay for it. Then you can narrow your search as you stick within your limits. Let me know if you have more questions. Good Luck

Upgrade from 600 MHz to 1 GhZ


According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least; http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,669029,00.asp Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors. Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know. Waiting for your post :)
