Can the processor on the Compaq Presario SR1810NX be upgraded?

Installed: Sempron (P) 3200+ 1.8 GHz
More over, would it be easier to replace the motherboard entirely?
This is an older back-up computer for my home and has been up graded with 4 GB RAM, sound card, HD Video Card, etc...yada yada.

Are there any more up-grades possible?

Money is no problem, I enjoy ripping electronics apart and putting them back together...sort of a hobby. Thanks.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, what could be suggested is to replace the Sempron with an Athlon CPU that matches the socket and pins. Get the highest speed possible.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Hi,
Yes the processor can be upgraded it requires a Socket 939 cpu. I'll look into what processors are supported by the board. You can accept my solution and I'll get back to you in a moment ones I've looked into it more.

    Hey, I've been looking into what processors are supported by your motherboard and here is a list. 

    The Socket is 939 so only socket 939 processors fit this model. 

    You currently have a sempron 3200+ that is the highest sempron that the board will run on.  Thesempron you have installed now is only a single core prosessor so it basicly has only one engine. 

    The board supports Amd athlon X2 4800+ that would seem to be the newest Dual core athlon cpu that is supported. so 4800 or lower would be a good upgrade. 

    the athlon X2 series has two cores, so you have double the power comparing to semipros on top of other improvements. its more than double the performance. 

    So I would definitely upgrade to a Athlon x2 for socket 939 or to a am2+ motherboard and maybe get a Amd Phenom (4 cores) on it, that will be even better. But the cheaper upgrade will be the X2. But in the long run the phenom would be a better upgrade and it would also require you to replace the motherboard.

    Instead of posting a list of cpus supported, basicly Amd Athlon X2 4800+ and lower will be supported. Sempron 3200+ is the highest sempron for your board.

I don't know any processors that would be compatible with my Compaq Presario SR1810NX and I'd like to upgrade it. Any help would be appreciated!


The mother board will support any Socket 939 AMD Athlon X2 Processor upto the 4800+ model.

However Socket 939 Processors were discontinued so you may have a hard time finding a "New" one.

The controller will not turn on. Green light on back comes on but when we turn on the unit, the fan starts briefly and then the power cuts off.


Bad Power Supply. Weak Voltage power rail.

Not enough power to turn the Processor on, and keep it on.

1) ALL those LED lights together, use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is. (Older Processors use less Wattage)

The Compaq Presario SR1810NX desktop computer, comes with an AMD Sempron 3200+, processor.

(Uses the Socket 939 processor socket)

[Maximum operating capability is a 1.8GigaHertz frequency rate.
1.8GHz

Giga = Approximately 1 Billion
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.
Frequency Rate is correct computer speak for 'Speed'
The AMD Sempron 3200+ processor, can operate at a maximum frequency rate of 1.8 Billion Cycles per Second ]

The AMD Sempron 3200+, can use up to 62 Watts,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Sempron_microprocessors#.22Palermo.22_.28Socket_939.2C_E3_.26_E6.2C_90_nm.29

(Palermo Core)

When you press the plastic Power On button, you are contacting a Power On switch inside it.
(Typical ATX Power On switch,

http://www.directron.com/atxswitch.html )

When an ATX power supply is plugged into power, there is a 5 Volt Standby power, present inside the power supply.

Pressing the momentary contact power on switch, closes a circuit that directs the 5 Volt Standby power to 'excite' the power supply, and turn it on.

The first chip to receive power is the BIOS chip.
[Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.
BIOS stands for Basic Input/Output System]

BIOS,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BIOS ]

BIOS looks to see what devices are installed, does a Ram Memory count, TURNS the Processor on, and hands the computer over to the Operating System.
(Windows XP is one example of an O/S. Operating System)

The LED lights receive power, so do the fans, and the Harddrive. When it's time for the Processor to kick on, there isn't enough power, and the Power Supply 'falls to it's knees'.

Replace the Power Supply.
It's just one of the basic ATX power supply's that are readily available in a multitude of places.
The Wattage is 300 Watts.

The ATX form factor for this power supply, (Size and shape), is approximately 6 inches Long, 6 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall.
