Question about Dell Optilex GX300 (188TD) Motherboard

1 Answer

Intel 820 dual core

I have a unique problem. As soon as i boot up the computer the first core in the task manager is at 100% usage. The process list doesnt show any exe's that are using any cpu usage let alone 50% of the total. Im going to try to look up each exe on google and see if any of them are viruses or spamware. I doubt thats the problem though. I am planning on reinstalling the windows to try and wipe out whatever is causing the problem. If anyone has had or still has this problem please let me know what u did to remedy the situation. Thanks.

This has happened to me in the past and maybe related to a windows update, go into accesories and system tools and perform a system restore to a date before any of the listed system check and see if that cures the problem. It may be worth running a scan for spyware as it may be a programme using up cpu usage trying to initiate the startup. I woukd also perform a registry clean and a temp files cleanup, This is an excellent free tool for reg and temp cleanup's http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/

What type of dual core processor can I use for my dc7600?


The motherboard for the dc7600 has an Intel LGA775 processor socket. However, not all LGA775 processors are compatible with the motherboard. For the small form factor, the following CPUs are supported: Intel Celeron D Processors:
Intel Celeron D 331 Processor (2.66-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 336 Processor (2.80-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Celeron D 346 Processor (3.06-GHz, 256K L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB)
Intel Pentium 4 Processors with HT Technology:
Intel Pentium 4 521 Processor (2.8-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 524 Processor (3.06-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB) , Intel Pentium 4 541 Processor (3.2-GHz, 1-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 620 Processor (2.8-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 630 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 631 Processor (3.0-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 640 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 641 Processor (3.2-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 650 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 651 Processor (3.4-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium 4 661 Processor (3.6-GHz, 2-MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB) or
Intel Pentium D Dual Core Processors:
Intel Pentium D 805 Dual Core Processor (2.66-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 533-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 820 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x1MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 915 Dual Core Processor (2.8-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 925 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 930 Dual Core Processor (3.0-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 940 Dual Core Processor (3.2-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 945 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800-MHz FSB), Intel Pentium D 950 Dual Core Processor (3.4-GHz, 2x2MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)

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.

There are a number of sites on the web that list tasks that will be listed in your Task Manager and explain what they are. Here is one of the better sites:

If you have tasks not listed there a search should get you another site that will list it. You should check each of your tasks and then decide which ones you can do without.

CPU saturatuon.


You'll need to look at the Processes panel in the Task Manager to see which processes are consuming your CPU cycles. If you click on the CPU column heading, the process list will re-sort based on CPU usage. If the list appears to be arranged low-to-high ('00' at the top), click on the heading again and the list will reverse so that it appears high-to-low ('00' at the bottom). Once you identify the contributing processes, you can troubleshoot them one-at-a-time.
