Question about PC Desktops

3 Answers

Will This Cpu fit my computer?

I have a HP Pavilion 762n with a Pentium 4 2.26GHz 478pin processor and I was wondering if a Intel Pentium 4 3.2GHz 800MH 478pin 1MB Tray CPU would work as a swap. Also I wanted to see how much GB's of Ram it can handle. It only has two slots. Thank you very much for taking the time. I appreciate it.

Hello,
According to this site:
HP Site

The motherboard can accept a maximum of 1Gb of RAM.

And the motherboard chipset is an Intel 845e, from Intel's website the chipset will only support 400mhz or 533mhz CPU's. Unfortunatly it does not look like it wil be compatible.

No, your selected processor will not work. From their website:

Proc. Front Side Bus Freq. 400/533MHz..which means you can only use a cpu that has a max 533 MHz frequency.

Maximum memory: Memory Speed PC2100/PC1600 Memory Sockets 2 DIMM Maximum Memory 1GB
This was obtained here.


thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

You can put the cpu in, its the same socket and the same pin as that one you have now. But you will probably not be able to use the 800Ghz fully since it is the motherboard who sets the buz speed and the cpu you using now haz the speed of 533Ghz.
About the RAM, you can have maximum 2GB of memory on that motherboard, thats all it supports. The momory type you can use is DDR PC2100/PC1600

All you need to know about your PC you will find here

Motherboard replace processor cpu i have an hp pavilion a820n tower with no cpu or power supply can u tell me what kind i need?


the processor to fit the mobo is a pentium 4 socket 775. the original was a 3.2G according to the HP website.
most standard 500 watt power supplies should fit.
it does concern me why there is no processor or power supply in it though.
are you sure the mobo is ok? the only reason I would think these parts have been removed is because the mobo is dead and they've been transplanted into something else.

Installing new cpu on a emachine


According to the specs I have Serena, the eMachines eTower 633i Desktop PC, uses a TriGem Cognac motherboard.

[TriGem is the manufacturer, Cognac is the model.
Note it is Not the TriGem Cognac+ ]

http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/motherboards_d/Trigem/Cognac/

Specifications. (You can click on the photo to enlarge)

PDF motherboard manual,

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/TriGem/manuals/index.html

Click on - Cognac - in the left side of the list.

Going back to the Motherboards.org page;
(Nothing like upside down photo information, and the motherboard is turned 90 degrees to the Right, to how it actually sits in your computer case )

The processor socket is a Socket 370,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_370

Used for Intel Pentium III processors, and intel 'Celey' processors.

(Excuse me......Celeron.
An Intel Pentium III processor has TWICE the L2 cache, that a comparable Intel Celeron has.
The cache for a Processor is a small memory area for the Processor.

It is the First memory the Processor accesses.
The Ram Memory is second, and the Harddrive is third.
More cache for a Processor makes it more faster )

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 810.

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is an Intel 82810.
The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801AA, or an Intel 82801AB.
(Intel ICH, or Intel ICH0 )

Looking at the chart, and reading across, you can see what the Intel 810 motherboard chipset supports;

1) Processors: Intel Celeron, or Intel Pentium II, or Intel Pentium III.

2) Processor Front Side Bus: (FSB) 66MegaHertz, or 100MHz.

3) SDR Sdram ram memory at 100Megahertz.

[Single Data Rate Sdram is often just referred to as Sdram.

Erroneous.
Double Data Rate Sdram is also Sdram (DDR Sdram)
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory
So is DDR2 Sdram, and DDR3 Sdram ]

Also referred to as PC100.

So when looking for a CPU you look for;

1) Fits in a Socket 370 processor socket.
Yep. The best is going to be an Intel Pentium III.

2) Has a FSB of 100MHz.

Hmmm,............

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_III_microprocessors#.22Coppermine.22_.28180_nm.29

Scroll down.

Pentium III 1100.

Maximum frequency rate ('Speed') is 1.1GHz (1100MHz)
Front Side Bus = 100MHz
Uses a Socket 370 processor socket.
Part Number = RB80526PY005256
sSpec Number = SL5QW

[ Don't forget to follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Clean the bottom of the Heatsink THOROUGHLY, and the top of the Processor if it needs it. (I always do anyway)

PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

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.

Hi James,

Your best bet will be to visit the Asus website and click on the 'support' tab at the top of the screen. Select the link for 'drivers' and specify your motherboard model. It's possible that there will be a BIOS update for your Asus m/board.
If so, do a BIOS flash and check if your PC will then accept your new CPU. NB! Take care when flashing the BIOS. Make sure there are no power interruptions etc. while performing this procedure as this could corrupt your BIOS software and render your motherboard useless.

Feel free to message me should you need more details or further assistance.
Best wishes,

Can I change out the intel pentium d 920 cpu for a faster 945?


No, In a store bought PC, the software that runs your computer is closely related to the motherboard and processor that are inside it.

You should purchase a new PC or purchase the parts to build your own PC.

I hope you find this information helpful.

Cpu fan failed haved system serviced immediately system will power down in 5 seconds


After the computer has powered off, unplug it from power.

You need to replace the Processor fan.

(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit.
Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor)

When a Processor becomes too hot, (Passes it's thermal limit), the Processor turns off.
(BIOS turns it off)

This is a Fail Safe feature to keep the Processor from burning up.
(Literally in some cases, as in on Fire!)

Your motherboard was made by TriGem.
It's a TriGem 2002052.
HP's name is Glendale.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07813&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=90832

Scroll down for a photo, and illustration of the motherboard.

There are No hardware components installed on the motherboard.
No Processor, Ram Memory, or any expansion cards in those white PCI slots.

The Black rectangular 'frame' you see, with the White rectangular block in the middle, (Has socket holes in it), is where the Processor plugs in.

When you open your computer, you will not see the Processor.
It is under the Heatsink, which is under the Processor fan.

Basic example of a Heatsink, with a Processor fan sitting on top of it,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=578161&CatId=795

It is that CPU fan, (Processor fan), that has failed.
The fan has bad bearings, and is no longer spinning, or spinning Very slow.

(Or spins a few times, stops, then spins a few times again, and so on)

Replace the Processor fan.
A better method is to replace the Heatsink, and Fan as a combo.

As shown in the above link.

The HP Pavilion 513c desktop computer, uses an Intel Pentium 4 processor, or Intel Celeron processor, that fits in a Socket 478 processor socket.

HP Pavilion 531c specifications from HP Support,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07769&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=90832

Not very explanatory, I'll admit, but under the heading
Base processor and speed,
it lists,
C(W) 1.8GHz /400

Stands for the Processor when operating at maximum capability, will have a frequency rate of 1.8GHz

The 400 stands for 400MHz FSB.
(Front Side Bus)

Looking back at the motherboard illustration, you will see - Socket 478 printed on the processor socket.
.
Only used for Intel Pentium 4 processors, and Intel Celeron processors.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

You need a Heatsink/Fan combo that fits on a Intel Pentium 4 processor, that fits in a Socket 478 processor socket.

1) Work on a table

2) Computer unplugged from power, open the computer case.

3) Observe Anti-Static precautions

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Power unplugged from the computer, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case.
This will relieve your body of Static.

Should you get up, and leave your computer in the middle of working on it, upon your return be Sure to Touch the metal frame again ]

4) Use a can of compressed air for computers, and attach the plastic straw provided to the can of air's nozzle. You may wish to use a dust mask.

[DO NOT use a vacuum! Vacuums create Static electricity]

4) Spray the inside of the computer out.
Start at the top left corner, and go across to the top right corner. Let go of the trigger.

Start again. Drop down a space, (1 inch or so), spray another row across.
Keep going down in rows.

If there is thick 'Gunk', (Dirt, dust, hair, etc.), use Q-tips to dislodge the gunk, then spray air again.
(You are in essence breaking the 'crust', then the can of air can spray it out)

When you reach the bottom, tilt the case towards you, spray the bottom of the case (Computer case) out.

5) Unplug the 20-pin ATX main power cable.

[Example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atxmain20

Note the plastic locking mechanism on the side of the connector. This lock works like a see-saw on a playground. It is hinged in the middle. Squeeze the top of the lock in, to unlock it ]

6) Remove the 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable.
Example,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#atx12v4

Has a lock on the side also.
(Don't forget to plug it back in, when you are finished installing the new Heatsink/Fan combo. It is power for the Processor.

Make sure both power cables above are plugged in tight, when reinstalling them)

What processor can use to upgrade my Pentium 4 2GHz in my HP M1270


HP Media Center M1270n desktop PC?

Here are the Product Specifications,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00280666&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=443756

Here is the Motherboard Specifications,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00297771&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=443756

The Asus PTGD1-LA motherboard, is a Proprietary motherboard, made Especially for HP.
HP's name is PufferM-UL8E

You won't find it on the Asus Support website.

Fortunately, HP listed basic information for CPU (Processor) Support.

When you look to the right of the CPU/Processor heading, you can see it states -
A) Socket LGA 775 (Processor socket)

Looks like this,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775

Processors that fit this processor socket, have the socket holes.
775 of them.
The LGA 775 processor socket, has the pins that go up into the socket holes of the Processor.
775 of them.

[The Socket 478 processor socket, that was before the Land Grid Array 775 processor socket, has the socket holes (478), and the processors that fit this processor socket, has the pins. {478 of them]

B) Supports processors with up to a 3.8GigaHertz frequency rate.
3.8GHz.

['Speed' is a slang term for Frequency Rate.
Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

3.8 Billion Cycles per Second.
Can also be stated as 3800 MegaHertz.
Mega = approximately 1 Million ]

C) Can support Intel Pentium 4 processors with HT.
Hyperthreading Technology.

D) Looking to the right of the Front-side bus (FSB) heading, you will see it states -
800MHz.

This means the Asus PTGD1-LA motherboard will support Pentium 4 processors with,
1) HT
2) UP TO a 3.8GHz frequency rate
3) Up to a FSB frequency rate of 800Megahertz.
4) Use an LGA 775 processor socket.

Now let's look at one example, of a chart of Pentium 4's with HT, that fits these specifications,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2


See the heading - Prescott (90nm)?
This means the processors in this chart, are based on the Prescott Core, and the 90nm architecture.

(nm stands for NanoMeter. Approximately 1 Billionth of a meter)

Looking at the headings in the chart, you will see Model Number, sSpec Number, Frequency, L2-cache, Front-Side Bus, Multiplier, Voltage, TDP, Socket, Release Date, Part Number/s, and Release Price.

At this point I would only concern myself with the,
Model Number, (If applicable),
sSpec Number,
Frequency,
FSB, (Front Side Bus),
Voltage,
Socket,
and Part Number(s)


1) Model Number:
The older Intel Pentium 4 HT processors did not have a Model Number.
Intel didn't start using a Model Number until later.
Model Number examples start with 517, 520, 520J, and so on.

Look for the sSpec Number, and the Part Number, for the older Pentium 4 HT's. They're printed on the top of the processor's case, and should be listed by the seller.

2) sSpec Number:
Intel brought this out.
Their way of marking a processor.
Another identifier for you to use.

3) Frequency:
The Maximum frequency rate, ('Speed'), that the Processor is supposed to be able to operate at.

4) L2-cache:
The small memory area for the Processor. The Processor accesses this small memory area first, because it operates at the same frequency rate as the Processor.

You can't change it, and 2MB of L2-cache, is the largest size for an Intel Pentium 4 with HT.
Just thought I would include this information.

(Ram Memory is next. Typically, Ram Memory operates at half of the FSB frequency rate. The Harddrive is next)

5) Front-Side Bus (FSB):
The frequency rate that the Processor transfers data (Information) to the Northbridge chip, and back from the Northbridge chip.
More on the Northbridge chip in a moment.

6) Voltage:
Pretty self-explanatory. The Voltage range the Processor will use.
You need the Voltage range of 1.25/1.4 Volts.
(1.25 Volts to 1.4 Volts)

Any Processor (That is Intel Pentium 4 HT, Socket LGA 775), that uses Voltage in this range will work.

7) Socket:
The type of processor socket that the Processor will fit in.
Has to be LGA 775.

8) Part Number(s)
Self-explanatory again.
The Part Number, that is stamped on top of the Processor's top case.

Part Number(s) is listed, because there may be more than one Processor in the Model Series, that fits the same specifications.

If there is no Model Number, refer to the sSpec Number, or Part Number.

The largest frequency rate (Speed) of Processor you can use, is a Pentium 4 HT that operates at 3.8GHz. (And fits in an LGA 775 processor socket)

Barring that a Pentium 4 at 3.8GHz cannot be found, you will know what Processors you Can use.

Scroll across the headings with your eyes, and start under the Frequency heading.

Find the frequency rate ('Speed') you wish to try.

Go across to the Front Side Bus heading. You should look for a processor listed that has an 800MHz listing.

Look at the Voltage.
All of the Intel Pentium 4 HT processors that fit in an LGA socket, use an 800MHz FSB, and are in THIS particular chart, fall within the same Voltage range.

Keep the Voltage range in your mind, as you look at the other charts below this one.

Socket.
You know you need a processor that fits in an LGA 775 socket.

Look at the chart below this Prescott Core (90nm) example.
Prescott 2M Core (90nm)

Use the above criteria above in this chart.

I wouldn't recommend any Pentium 4 HT's, in the Cedar Mill (65nm) chart.
It isn't that the architecture is smaller (65nm), but that the BIOS program,and version on your motherboard, may not be able to handle these processors listed.

I also do not see a BIOS update for one, and for two, if you make a mistake when performing a BIOS update, your motherboard becomes an expensive Frisbee, or doorstop.

You also do not want any of the processors listed under the Pentium 4 Extreme Edition heading.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

(Mobile Processors are for laptops Laptops are M-O-B-I-L-E)


Northbridge chip.

1) The Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip make up the motherboard chipset.

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

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

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

The Northbridge chip handles the faster processes of the computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and High speed graphics.

(AGP or PCI Express. Not a graphics card in a PCI slot, nor Integrated Graphics on the motherboard. These are slower processes of the computer)

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

(CPU = Processor
Memory Slots = Ram Memory slots)

Looking at the diagram, you can see the slower processes handled by the Southbridge chip.

Looking back at the Motherboard Specifications, look across from the Chipset heading.

Northbridge: i915P graphics and memory controller hub
(MCH)
Southbridge: ICH6 Intel I/O Controller Hub 6

Uses an Intel 915P Northbridge chip, and an Intel ICH6 Southbridge chip.
