You cannot change your fsb. You need to upgrade to a cpu with a fsb speed that your board can support. Once you install the new cpu your bios will set the fsb to the higher setting of your new cpu if your board supports it. If you have your board specs it will tell you something like supports fsb 1066/800. That would mean you could upgrade to a supported 1066 fsb cpu. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

    If you have a 533 mhz fsb then the 2.8 would be the way to go. I had to go this route with my wife's olf dell as it had an older motherboard. The reason you can see the 800mhz cpu at all is because chipset is same but it will never give you full performance because of the fsb issue. I hope this helps you out.

    Flashing the bios would do nothing to change your fsb speed but it would provide support for compatible cpu's that came out after the board was manufactured.

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?

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.

I have an Ms-7037 motherboard. I want to change


You cannot change the FSB to 800 , the board is made to take certain FSB's and processors are made with certain fsb speeds (Mainly 533mhz , 800mhz , 1066mhz etc)

These speeds cannot be changed . You have to buy a new processor and a new board to get the faster speed FSB !

If you found this solution useful , please rate below

Changing FSB & Voltages


Hi there.
You can change the front side bus in the bios if the bios supports it, if it does be very careful not to overclock the processor to much as you can cause damage to the motherboard and blow the processor up, also bear in mind that cooling is very important when it comes to overclocking.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Upgraded cpu- wont boot


Teresa, if you changed the front side bus to 533, your memory must have the same clock speed. Memory clock speeds are what is known as "backwards compatible" but not forwards. This means that you could put a piece of memory of a clock speed of 400mhz into a system that runs at 333mhz and it will "downclock" the memory, but you could not put a piece of 333mhz memory in a 400mhz fsb pc and expect it to run. one of two things will happen, the system will not boot at all or the syetm will downclock the processor to a slower speed. In your case your cpu must be 533mhz clock speed with pc4200/533mhz memory to function correctly.

motherboard will id the FSB speed.

CPU-Z
click on the download latest version, left column
when you unzip and run this it will tell you if the processor is 478 or 479 pin both have 478 pins but location is different.

Processor FSB


no, the proc will lose speed. the FSB is a part of the equation that determines the processors speed. A lower FSB speed will mean reduced performance.

CPU Upgrade


Athlon XP 3000+ is 400mhz FSB according to the link(http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/ProductInformation/0,,30_118_1274_3734^11672,00.html), means that in order to display the actual speed of your Athlon XP 3000+ you have to set your board 166mhz to 200mhz jumper setting or in CMOS utility overclocking option. and also just to inform you that your motherboard is in Overclocked condition when set, because it only supports processors up to 333mhz FSB (http://www.digital-daily.com/motherboard/soltek-sl75frv/)
