Installing new cpu on a emachine - E-Machines etower 633is PC Desktop

    Thanks for all that joecoolvette but I already knew all this. I purchased a PIII 1100 cpu. My problem was that when I put it in, my machine did not respond. Hard drive light on the front of the computer flashed briefly when powered on but the power light never came on. The cpu fan was going but the hard drive didn't seem to be going. And the moniter never came up with any thing displayed.

According to the specs I have Serena, the eMachines eTower 633i Desktop PC, uses a TriGem Cognac motherboard.

[TriGem is the manufacturer, Cognac is the model.
Note it is Not the TriGem Cognac+ ]

http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/motherboards_d/Trigem/Cognac/

Specifications. (You can click on the photo to enlarge)

PDF motherboard manual,

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/TriGem/manuals/index.html

Click on - Cognac - in the left side of the list.

Going back to the Motherboards.org page;
(Nothing like upside down photo information, and the motherboard is turned 90 degrees to the Right, to how it actually sits in your computer case )

The processor socket is a Socket 370,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_370

Used for Intel Pentium III processors, and intel 'Celey' processors.

(Excuse me......Celeron.
An Intel Pentium III processor has TWICE the L2 cache, that a comparable Intel Celeron has.
The cache for a Processor is a small memory area for the Processor.

It is the First memory the Processor accesses.
The Ram Memory is second, and the Harddrive is third.
More cache for a Processor makes it more faster )

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 810.

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is an Intel 82810.
The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801AA, or an Intel 82801AB.
(Intel ICH, or Intel ICH0 )

Looking at the chart, and reading across, you can see what the Intel 810 motherboard chipset supports;

1) Processors: Intel Celeron, or Intel Pentium II, or Intel Pentium III.

2) Processor Front Side Bus: (FSB) 66MegaHertz, or 100MHz.

3) SDR Sdram ram memory at 100Megahertz.

[Single Data Rate Sdram is often just referred to as Sdram.

Erroneous.
Double Data Rate Sdram is also Sdram (DDR Sdram)
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory
So is DDR2 Sdram, and DDR3 Sdram ]

Also referred to as PC100.

So when looking for a CPU you look for;

1) Fits in a Socket 370 processor socket.
Yep. The best is going to be an Intel Pentium III.

2) Has a FSB of 100MHz.

Hmmm,............

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_III_microprocessors#.22Coppermine.22_.28180_nm.29

Scroll down.

Pentium III 1100.

Maximum frequency rate ('Speed') is 1.1GHz (1100MHz)
Front Side Bus = 100MHz
Uses a Socket 370 processor socket.
Part Number = RB80526PY005256
sSpec Number = SL5QW

In the top header -
Specifications / Pictures (1) / CPU ID (1) / Comments (1),
click on Pictures (1)

You can click on the photo to enlarge.
256MegaByte of L2 cache. (256MB)

A comparable Celeron would have 128MB of L2 cache.

[ Don't forget to follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Clean the bottom of the Heatsink THOROUGHLY, and the top of the Processor if it needs it. (I always do anyway)

PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

Emachines e4026 non-responsive


I don't think it's an overheating CPU. It would stay on for a bit longer if it was that. My best guess is a power supply issue. Either your power supply is bad, or more likely something is pulling too much power from it. Emachines are notorious for using the bare minimum hardware... possibly the extra hard drive is pulling more juice than the power supply can handle, so it shuts down. Try disconnecting power to the new hard drive and see if the machine comes up. If it does, you need a new, higher wattage power supply.

I have an emachines t3256 desktop that i just reinstalled windows xp and now i cant get the network adapter to work its onboard and i cant find a driver on their website


Try installing a PCI ehternet card.Turn off the cpu then restart.The cpu will automatically (!?)detect the new hardware and even install the driver(generic).Then there you can get to the internet and get you E-machine drivers.It will also install the driver for your onboard ethernet(NIC) adapter and with that you are good to go.

Upgrade to a new motherboard?


I think there may be another issue.. It could be the power supply.. Have you tried a new one?

Have you installed any additional ram lately?

You can use the old XP software with a new motherboard, but it can be a pain in the **** to set-up if it is the OEM version of Windows, or a Recovery Disk that came with your machine..

What you could do, if you bought another motherboard, find someone with a Genuine Windows XP disk, and use your Product Key to install it..

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot


Buy a dianostics card, and find out if its the RAM, CPU, OR Motherboard. (sounds like a ram or CPU problem though) if you have more than one stick of ram in the system, take one out, and power it up, if still not response, to the other stick out, and put the stick you took out the first time, and put it back in.
