Question about Dell (008HW) Motherboard

2 Answers

I am going to replace a motherboard and want to know of the 3 choices 5Y835, 6g040,9y422 (dell c840 & 8200) I want the fastest fsb and intel chip that I can run. I read that you can go above 400mhz to 533mhz and even to 800mhz. Seems if possible you could run up to 3.2GHZ. How do I find out and what bios will I need?

There are a few things that you need to check out.

First you need to make sure there isn't any extra colling systems that would of been installed in the higher speed laptops. Laptops with stronger video systems can't have a large cpu due to thermal issues. (8500 series had issues with overheating that would eventually cause the cpu to burn off or the gpu to burn off... burn off is when the silicon literally burns)

Second: You should see if there is a new laptop out there.that will do the job. They are going to be pretty cheap at the 4quarter. Most stores need to get rid of the inventory. You can pick up pretty nice systems for very little.

Hi, I have a ThinkCentre A51 Series Type 8122KQF system with a Pentium 4 (533MHz FSB) processor on an IBM Barbados motherboard. I would like to upgrade to 4GB RAM(2x2GB to utilize dual channel). What is...


FSB speed is what the RAM works at. If you get faster RAM that is ok, it will work but only at the FSB speed. If you get slower RAM then it works at the slower speed or may cause issues.

What processor can i use with 446476-001 system board


The HP 446476-001 laptop motherboard, or also stated as HP motherboard used for the HP Pavilion dv6000 series of Notebook PC's;

A) Has an Intel 965PM motherboard chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipset

Has a;

B) Socket P processor socket, for Intel processors

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

Using this information you know;

1) That the Intel PM965 motherboard chipset supports
Intel Core 2 Duo processors,

with either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or a 667MHz FSB, or an 800MHz FSB.

[Note*

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge, and Southbridge chip, for YOUR motherboard technology.

(Does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)

The Northbridge part number is Intel 82965PM.

You won't see this part number on a chipset, because the Northbridge chip is under a small finned heatsink.

The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH8-M
Part number is 82801HM. This you should see on a chipset ]

2) That the processor socket is a Socket P.

So you need an Intel Core2 Duo processor, with either a 533MHz, or 667MHz, or 800MHz FSB, and fits in a Socket P processor socket.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

(You may, or may not need a BIOS update )

Had this system for awhile but never had any problems. Todays internet media etc. are getting to be too demanding for the athalon processor that came bundled with this MB. What is the strongest/fastest...


http://www.xiew.com/product-detail/msi/kt4v-l/

A) Processor Socket:
Socket A (Also known as Socket 462)

B) Motherboard Chipset:

VIA KT400A

VIA KT400A Northbridge chip,
VIA VT8235 Southbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#Slot_A_and_Socket_A

[ Info reading across from the subheading KT400A, shows one, of two newer Southbridge chipsets could have been used.
The VT8237, or the VT8251.

Neither one was apparently used, or the website's info is mistaken ]

The Northbridge chip (VIA KT400A) will support;

A) Processors with no more than a 266MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (266MHz FSB)
It will support Processors with either a 200MHz FSB, or 266MHz FSB.

(AMD processors are 'double-pumped'. The 100MHz, and 133MHz FSB support shown, is 'double-pumped' to 200MHz, and 266MHz )

AMD Athlon XP with a 266MHz FSB, that fits in a Socket A processor socket, IMHO is the best.

[ To digress;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms to represent I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

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

The Northbridge chip is so aptly named, for one, because it sits on the North side of the motherboard. Looking at the motherboard as a map, the Processor sits due 'North'.
The white long PCI slots sit due 'South'.

{In the illustration of the MSI KT4V motherboard above in FixYa, turn the motherboard to the Left }

The Northbridge chip and the Southbridge chip is the Motherboard Chipset.

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.

The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot is Not high-speed graphics.
Neither is Integrated Graphics.
{Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard graphics. ON the motherBOARD.
The GPU is soldered to the motherboard, not on a removable graphics card}

Motherboard Diagram, (That is for the technology used for the MSI KT4V motherboard.
Does not apply to motherboards supporting the Intel Core i3, i5, i7, and i9 processors),

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

The Northbridge chip is the motherboard chip to be concerned with, when deciding what Processors the motherboard will support.

Finding an AMD Athlon XP that fits in a Socket A processor socket, and has a maximum FSB of 266MegaHertz, is a wee tough.

In my recent search I have seen some advertised on Ebay. DO NOT know anything about them.
Here is an AMD Athlon MP 2000+,

http://www.weirdstuff.com/cgi-bin/item/13161

,that operates at a maximum of 1.67GigaHertz, and uses a 266MHz FSB.

Not advertising for the above website either, but I have dealt with them to great satisfaction.

Hi I have a D420 its a small one thats what i like about it i also have a d620 but i wanted to upgrade my d420 with something to make it a little faster like a processor upgrade ...? im not sure about the...


Hi,

Your thoughts are breaking up as you are typing.

You stated;
1) I have a Dell Latitude D420 and a Latitude D620.
The D420 is small, that's what I like about it.

I want to make my D420 faster, is there a possible Processor upgrade?
I'm not sure about the specifications of the motherboard, so I do not know if this is possible.

I know I can get an SSD Harddrive,............the rest is illegible to me.

A) The D420 keeps going slow.

Question: After what?
After you installed an SSD harddrive? After you flashed the BIOS?


B) Was fast when I flashed it.

Question: Flashed the BIOS?
Why?
Why do people always rush to try to upgrade their BIOS program with a flash, when they do not know if it will help, or not?
One mistake and you have a dead laptop. Use it for a paperweight.

When you upgrade the BIOS you have the option to save the original, so you can go back to it in case there is trouble.
Did you?

Post back in a Comment.


While I wait.
To upgrade to a better Processor you need to know;

1) What Processor socket is on the motherboard

2) What is the motherboard chipset, and specifically, what is the Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset.


To explain;

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.

(For the Dell Latitude D420 motherboard. This does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, i5, i7, or i9 processors)

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

{Note*
CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short. Does Not mean Personal Computer}

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

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

The Northbridge chip is so aptly name because for one, it sits on the motherboard to the North, or top of the motherboard. Generally right under the Processor socket.

The Northbridge chip handle the Processor, Ram Memory, and High speed graphics.

{High speed graphics being AGP, or PCI Express. Not a graphics card installed into a PCI slot, nor Integrated Graphics. {Integrated Graphics, OnBoard graphics, same/same}


The motherboard chipset is an Intel 945GMS,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core.2FCore_2_Mobile_Chipsets

(Part number printed on the Northbridge chip is Intel 82945GMS. Part number on the Southbridge chip is Intel 82801GBM)

The Northbridge chip supports Processors with up to a 667Megahertz Front Side Bus. (667MHz FSB)

Will support Processors with either a 533MHz FSB, or a 667MHz FSB.
667MHz FSB being the maximum it will support.

The processor socket is a Socket M.

I have a gateway MSII have a gateway MSI Ms-7399 mother board. I have an E6300 pentium dual core processor at 2.8 with a FSB at 1066,in it and it works fine. I want to know what the specs on the board are...


The board is maxed out at 1066 and it does not appear that gateway has a BIOS update to allow for the higher FSB reuired with the faster Intel chips. If you installed one of these newer LGA 775 chips into your computer it may work but would be a lot slower than what it is rated due to the chips multiplier would be set for 1333. I could not see any BIOS updates from gateway for this board. Also these chips are designed to run with the faster memory and the 800mhz memory speed would also be a bottle neck for your system.

Need a new processor


http://www.dell.com/content/products/productdetails.aspx/inspn_e1405?c=us&cs=22&l=en&s=dfh&~section=specs#tabtop

Select Tech Specs:

Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo Processor T5500 (1.66GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB) Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo Processor T5600 (1.83GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB) Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo Processor T7200 (2GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB) Intel® CoreTM 2 Duo Processor T7400 (2.16GHz, 4MB L2 Cache, 667MHz FSB) You can order the processor from Dell sales and then take it to a local computer shop like Fry's. And they can can install it for a good price. I normally would not recommend replacing a laptop processor unless you have done it previously several times.

Upgrading CPU


Yeah, it was a bit hard to find, not being a currernt model I was stuck on the Asus site trying to find out for you.
Then I found this site -
http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles/view.php?cid=6&id=465&pg=
It says
  • Socket 478 for Intel� Pentium 4 / Celeron processors
  • Intel� Pentium 4 Processors 1.4GHz - 2.53GHz or higher
  • Intel� Celeron Processors 1.7GHz - 1.8GHz or higher
  • Supports processors at 400 / 533MHz front side bus
    Or higher, it says. But doesn't say how higher. It's a fair assessment that if it is a Pentium 4 socket 478 chip, it should work. Then it's a case of choosing one that suits your budget.
    Have a look on the Asus site for the latest BIOS updates too - they might have a clue as to what chip you can go to -
    http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S533-MX&product=1&type=All&SLanguage=en
    Er, no - it doesn't tell you. But if you go thru the page you will find BIOS version 1005 that " P4S533-MX BIOS 1005
    Support new Intel P4 CPU" and the latest bios is 1007.002

    There's a motherboard user manual further down on the page. Make sure you choose the English one.
    Seems the issue is FSB speed, 533 or 400. No big problem for most, but I did see a Pentium4 3.0Ghz chip at 800 FSB so just check the speed of the processor matches the specs the motherboard handles. Like you say, looks like the 3.2 might be too fast because of the FSB requirement.
    Remember, a P4 is going to be quicker than a celeron anyhow so just go with the fastest 533 FSB chip you can find.
    A short-cut to the english manual, here - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s533-mx/e1187_p4s533-mx.pdf
