Dell dimension maximum cpu upgrade


This desktop has a motherboard in it that has an intel LGA 775 processor socket in it. From the spec's I found the cpu that ships with the system should be able to scale up to 3.5 Ghz. But you should be able to replace it with any Pentium 4 that fits into an LGA 775 socket.

What motherboard can i upgrade to from the 836GM Media Center PentiumD 820 Dual-Core 2.8GHz


You can upgrade your system using most any motherboard, but note that the motherboard must match the CPU you are thinking about using.If you have a proprietorial computer (like a Dell or Gateway) the motherboard might not fit without a case modification.My advice is to figure out what your needs are. Research the CPU you wish to use and then find a motherboard that supports it.

Can i up grade my single core cpu pen4 550 3,4GHz to a Quad core or dual core either one would help


Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Where to get replacement motherboard for Gateway 507GR Intel E210882 LGA 775 GW149671509FC00124


I think a micro atx socket 775 motherboard would work here if you wanted to retain the original CPU
You may have to sort out some wiring though..
For an original board, best off trying ebay

1 out 50 times I turn on my Dell Dimension E520 there is no signal to the monitor. I have tried to install a new PCI express card instead of using the integrated graphics but the result was the same e.i no...


The problem is the Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

You've taken the right steps with your diagnosis.

1) Start with the monitor cable. If removable use a known to be good monitor cable.
Checks okay, go onto the graphics 'engine' of the computer.

If the monitor cable is not removable, use another monitor, and cable for a test.

2) If you are presently using Integrated Graphics the next step in diagnosing is to install a graphics card.
See if the problem is the Integrated Graphics 'engine'.

[ Just to add:
Intel GM X3100 is the graphics 'engine'. It is integrated into the Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset.

Intel G965 chipset is the motherboard chipset. The Intel ID number on the Northbridge chip is 82G965.
The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH8, or ICH8R, or ICH8-DH,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_Chipsets

{Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intergrated_Circuit }


The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.
AGP and PCI Express are High-speed graphics.

A graphics card in a PCI slot is not High-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
PCI and Integrated Graphics being two of the slower capabilities.
SATA, IDE, USB, and Ethernet, are also some of the slower capabilities of a computer,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another name used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short ]

3) Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

The Power Supply has enough power to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

A) ALL the LED lights on at once will consume less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan consumes 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can consume (Maximum) 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Depends on what Processor it is.

The Dell Dimension E521 desktop computer's motherboard, has an LGA 775 processor socket.
(Processor has the socket holes, processor socket has the pins)

The Intel processors that can be used in this processor socket, can be an Intel Pentium 4, (Version that uses an LGA 775 processor socket), Intel Pentium D, or Intel Core2 Duo, AND Intel Core 2 Quad, with a maximum FSB of 1066MHz. (If the BIOS version will support Intel Core2 Quad processors)
{Front Side Bus of 1066Megahertz}

Wattage consumption can be as much as 105 Watts.

Do you have a KNOWN to be good, compatible Power Supply available, to use as a test unit?

{Compatible being that the Power Supply case fits, (ATX), has the right amount of power cables, and the correct power cables. (Needs to have a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, for one)

Perhaps there is an unused computer that has a Power Supply you can borrow.
Maybe someone has upgraded to a better computer, and has an unused one with a compatible power supply for a test unit.

Cant find motherboard specs. ________________________________________ Hello. I cannot find the specs for my motherboard. Its the comp in my sig and the model number is E946GZT-AM.V1.0 its whatever came in...


As requested motherboard specifications for the Acer Power FH desktop computer,

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/PowerFH/PowerFHsp2.shtml

1) Processor Support:
Tells you what Intel processors are supported.

If you do not know what you are looking at, let me know, I'll explain it.

Doesn't state it, but I can tell you that it has an LGA 775 processor socket.
Has to in order to support the Intel processors stated.

This is what an LGA 775 processor socket looks like,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_T

2) Ram Memory Support:
Has two ram memory slots.
Each slot has a Maximum Amount of 1GB.
Total Amount for the motherboard is 2GB.

Supports (Uses) DDR2 Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of either 533MegaHertz, or 667MHz.
Which is PC2-4300 and PC2-5300 respectively.

3) Motherboard Chipset:
Uses an Intel 946GZ Northbridge chipset, and a
Intel ICH7 Southbridge chipset.

The link below states what the Intel 946GZ/Intel ICH7 chipset will support,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_Chipsets

4) Graphics Support:

Has the Intel GMA 3000 GPU for Onboard (Integrated) graphics.
(When you use the VGA port on the back of the computer.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA

( GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit. Type GPU in Wikipedia's search box for more information )

Also has a PCI Express x16 slot for a graphics card.

This graphics slot uses the PCI Express 1.1 technology.

Looking back at the link for the Intel 946GZ/Intel ICH7 chipset you can see it was brought out in the 7th month of 2006.

(Release Date: 2006.07)

The PCI Express 2.0 technology was brought out
January 15, 2007.

If you're wondering, whether a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology will work on it, the answer is yes with no sweat.

The reason why is that PCI Express 2.0 technology is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1 technology.

You won't get the full capability of the PCI Express 2.0 graphics card.

Will you notice? NO.

Games and 3D programs haven't begun to scratch the bandwidth of PCI Express 1.1 yet, much less the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

(Look up PCI Express on Wikipedia.
Also check out the external links at the bottom of the page)

I'm guessing the form factor of the motherboard is ATX, but I am just guessing at this point.

I base my deduction on the fact that a PCI Express x16 slot, and a PCI Express x1 slot is used, plus there are two PCI slots. (All are Expansion Slots)

You have to have enough room for all this hardware, and I don't see a Micro-ATX form factor motherboard as having the room.

But you can easily check for yourself.

Micro-ATX is 9.6 inches by 9.6 inches.
(244mm by 244mm)
9.6 inches is approximately 9 and 9/16ths inches.

ATX is 12 inches by 9.6 inches.
(305mm by 244mm)

That's the main highlights of the motherboard. Is there anything else you wish to know about it?

If the computer is operational, and internet capable, you could go to CPUID.com, and download the tiny, little program CPU-Z.

It's free.
Gives you a real in-depth look at your computer hardware specifications, and what you have presently installed right now.

Should you need help in downloading it, or using it, let me know in a Comment.
