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?

Did you check with Dell? Is unit posting? Will not post if you have bad memory, peripheral, Try disconnecting everything except one stick of memory and see if it posts or you get something on the monitor.

I bought a pentium 4 3.0 ghz 800 mhz & my


The motherboard chipset of the Dell Dimension 2300 Desktop PC, will not support a processor with an 800MHz Front Side Bus frequency rate.

Only Intel Pentium 4's that use a Socket 478, 1.75 Volts, and a maximum of a 400MHz FSB.

The Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.0GHz processor has an 800MHz FSB, (As you have already stated), and uses 1.475 to 1.55 Volts.

The motherboard chipset for that Dell Dimension 2300, is an Intel 845GL.

This list on Wikipedia, shows you parameters the Intel 845GL chipset supports,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

Not a good outcome, sorry. Just stating the facts.

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
