Question about E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC

1 Answer

Upgrading concerns I have an Emachine T3256 that has 1 gig memory in it now. I want to upgrade the processor and possibly motherboard. I updated my graphics card, but now I want more speed. How do I find a compatible processor/motherboard that I will get the best results. I recently found out that this board only can hold ddr and not dual channel. Thus I cant get more than 2 gig in here. I don't really want to buy an entire PC. Suggestions?

You can go to e-machines. com and they will give you specs for the model you have. i would invest in a nvidia motherboard. low cost with great speed and very upgradeable.

I have a Acer AX1200-U1510A AM2+ Motherboard and i would like to upgrade the processor, ihave 4 gigs of mem and a 1 gig Gigabyte Gt 610 graphics card. I only have a 240 watt power supply what processo


Should work with a processor of the same socket type. I'd seriously upgrade the psu myself. Personally I'd upgrade the motherboard and processor to a quad core, and get the fastest ram, look at ebuyer.com, you can buy a bundle upgrade package for less than you may think. :)

I want to upgrade to use ocz platnum memory. I have a acer aspire 1.8 gig 3100+ processor. No shielding. Most kits are discontinued. What type of heat shielding and fan is used if I can find the 1.8 gig...


You are using a very old socket/CPU I very much doubt you will find a retailer that sells new kits or whatever your looking for (kinda hard to decipher your question) As for shielding, shielding for what? wires?
Also you really wont have any performance gain upgrading to a 3200 over a 3100+

I'd recommend upgrading your board totally to a 939 or higher like a AMD AM2 platform. Then you can browse dozens of OCZ kits and have many dual and quad processors to choose from.

I want to upgrade my procesor to faster procesor.


Upgrading processor is not likely a practical solution; find out the motherboard manufacturer and contact their site for more information. As to upgrading the motherboard, you'll have to know what kind/size of board your system will require. If you don't have lots of experience, this process is very risky.

Frankly, the cheapest way to upgrade your computer is to buy a used and working product with Windows XP already installed. Go to http://craigslist.com, select your city, and search for a brand name you trust. I've bought DOZENS of used computers very cheap that way (I'm writing this on a $2,200 Dell Latitude D620 I bought fiv months old for $500, who needed the cash!)

System speed


Your CPU speed depends on your front side bus speed. Overclock is an option but never recommended. The upgrading ram is cheapest and most noticable upgrade you can do. If your do want to upgrade your computer i would recommend upgrading ram. Remember any computer with a 32-bit processor can only reconize 4 gig's of ram.

Problem with upgrading processor


Sounds like the processor you're trying to upgrade to isn't the same frequency. The processor, motherboard, and memory have a matched frequency. For example; a motherboard with a frequency of say PC4200 will only accept a processor and memory of a PC4200 frequency. If you try to use PC5300 memory it basically won't do anything, blank screen, or maybe a beep. The same if you tried to use a processor with PC5300 on the PC4200 board. The best way to find the frequency rating is to look on the memory. They class the memory by frequency, but rarely ever list the frequency for the board or processor. Research the new processor to find out the memory class and then see if it matches the memory in your machine. If it doesn't then the processor won't work. If it does, then new processor may not be compatible, and that means more research.
