Question about E-Machines T2240 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have an eMachine T2240 with an Intel Celeron processor 2.20 GHz & 384 MB of RAM.  The only real complaint I have is that this machine runs slow - it is rather aged - and I tend to bump up against my memory limits periodically.  I want to boost my speed and increase my memory on this machine.  Any suggestions on what kind of processor and memory upgrade parts I should consider?

    Hi Antiochpc:
    Thanks SO much for the quick reply and suggestions, especially the TigerDirect link w/the Centon memory upgrade. [TigerDirect was my destination for parts, so good call - imho, anyway.]  

    If you or another tech guru there have time for one more question from me - what's the opinion on combo upgrade sets for the CPU/Mother Board?  ["MoBo" = "Mother Board" right? - Ok! 2 questions from me this time] I ask b/c I saw some replacement combos @ parts.emachines.com.  [fwiw: Based on what I've read elsewhere about eMachines vs. other companies & MoBos, if I decide to upgrade w/a CPU/MoBo/PS combo for my T2240, I will likely go w/another manufacturer than eM.]
    Thanks again!

Memory: Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. You may purchase here.
This will give you the biggest speed increase.

CPU: I could not find specs for which cpus this motherboard supports. However, I had one of these same machines and succesffuly swapped out the celeron processor for a pentium 4 processor, 2.53 GHz. You should be safe finding a used processor on ebay that's a Pentium 4 2.2 GHz and it should work for you.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

    Your best bet if you wish to upgrade your mobo (yes, motherboard ;c) is to build yourself a new computer. I just built a decent PC, complete with clear sided case with blue LED, and a 64 bit dual core processor for less than $250. I used motherboard item number S458-1300 along with cpu item number CP2-AM2-4200. 1 GB DDR2 memory, DVDRW, 160 GB HD, CPU fan, and a case with 450 W power supply. Update the memory and HD for a little extra dough and you have a nice dual core system for under $300.

    Thanks and please take a moment to re-rate as fixya.

My celeron r 915 1.7ghz is working too slow


To speed up your processor, you need to take some load off of it. Search through all your TSR programs and services to remove things you do not need or want.
Another way to help your processor is to add more RAM to your motherboard. Find out what is the maximum you can put on the motherboard and load it up.
You can also reduce the size of your swap file. That would reduce the amount of time your processor is downloading data from your hard drive. A real processor time waster.

What type of dual core processor can I use for my dc7600?


The motherboard for the dc7600 has an Intel LGA775 processor socket. However, not all LGA775 processors are compatible with the motherboard. For the small form factor, the following CPUs are supported: Intel Celeron D Processors:
Intel Celeron D 331 Processor (2.66-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 336 Processor (2.80-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 346 Processor (3.06-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB)
Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology:
Intel Pentium 4 521 Processor (2.8-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 524 Processor (3.06-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 541 Processor (3.2-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 620 Processor (2.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 630 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 631 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 640 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 641 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 650 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 651 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 661 Processor (3.6-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) or
Intel Pentium D Dual Core Processors:
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 915 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 925 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 930 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 945 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

Unfortunately, these are old processors and I don't see any available new. Newegg.com lists a couple available as refurbished. You may be better off getting a new computer with either a Intel I3 or current AMD processor.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Cannot upgrade ram over 384 mb


nothing much you can do about that, the limitation is down to the processor/motherboard configuration. I have an old packard bell with the same 'problem'.
just max out the ram and run something like ubuntu linux on it - better and faster than windows (in my opinion) and it's free.
If you really want to run windows then nothing newer than win 2000/ME will run in that memory.

Hi ,
I assume you are under Windows XP but this will also work under Windows 7 32 bit .
You can insert a 100GB HDD without any problem . A higher capacity is risky with your type of machine and could lead to a fatal read error , meaning you couldn't boot your unit anymore .
Under a 32 bit XP system , 2GB ram is the max.
I don't recommend changing the processor with the motherboard , you could encounter conflictual issues with the rest of the unit .
Buy yourself a new pc equiped with a I5 or better with a I7 processor running under W 7 64-bit is the solution but they still are expensive .
Best regards .

I have sys which contain main board marrcury(p1865d7).now i will run visual studio2008 but not properly run so plz give suggetion @ processor & ram


According to Microsoft: Minimum: 1.6 GHz CPU, 384 MB RAM, 1024x768 display, 5400 RPM hard disk Recommended: 2.2 GHz or higher CPU, 1024 MB or more RAM, 1280x1024 display, 7200 RPM or higher hard disk
I know that Visual Studio 2008 runs fairly slowly on a 2.4GHz laptop with 1GB RAM, so I can't imagine that it would run all that well on a 1.6GHz machine.

you cannot change the speed of your processor unless your processor supports overclocking. however your processor does not support that.

if your computer is running slow try upgrading the RAM to 1GB.
also check to see whether you have unwanted applications running in the background

851 MHz Celeron Processor


*********** board will support a max of 1GB of RAM. Your processor is an Intel at 1.8 GHz. The preceding is only true if your PC is the Emachines T1840 as you chose in the category listing of your post. Again if that is true, you can achieve the max RAM by installing a 512MB stick in each of the two memory slots.
Good luck.

PS: Gdlkn84as528 is correct in assuming that a less than 1.3GHz Intel processor would be a P3 or equivalent processor. So which is it, it can't be both ways?
