Question about Gateway GT4010 (RBGT4010) PC Desktop
Looking for a solution to my current problem, a gateway GT4010 desktop: I bought a processor and want to know if it is compatible with my computer. The specs are: AMD Athlon 64 processor 3500+, socket type 939, 2.2GHz, 2000MHz FSB, 512KB L2 cache. The only difference with the new one is it has HT 2000 instead of 2000MHz FSB. What does HT mean and would it be OK for me to install it. I found out that this processor can be upgraded but to what? Where do I look for this info? General question: If I suspect that the onboard video is not working, do I have to disable it before installing a new video card? How do I disable it there is nothing on the monitor? Will it know to go directly to the new video card?
Actually with AMD the HT means HyperTransport(different from HyperThreading)! It should be ok to install! And with the graphics card, yes the machine should automatically pick up the graphics card and send video to it. After you install the card, go in bios and set the default display adapter properly.

Athlon? 64 3000+ ~ 4000+ Athlon FX FX 55 ~ FX59 Athlon 64 X2 4200+ ~ 4800+ The above processors are supported on your board, i think you may have bought the bottom one, although check the model number as the HT means hypertheading, which is AMD version of the Intel Core Duo, which means the processor can manage two or more processor stressing programmes at once, but you should always purchase a suitable heatsink and fan to cool the processor. As regards the onboard graphics, there will be a setting in the bios (to get to it,F2 or Del on boot up) which will be in the advanced cmos settings menu or similair and look for words to the effect 'primary graphics controller' and set this at either pci or agp depending on your model graphics card. Save settings and exit the bios for a re boot.
