Intel D865GBF,

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/D865GBF/sb/CS-008984.htm

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-D865GBF-Socket-478-Motherboard-IO-shield-/160932108857?pt=Motherboards&hash=item25784d1a39

Above is for reference only

"Which board D865GBF can I replace with, for the latest upgrades?
Speed, and everything?"

None, Joseph.

If I take your question literally;..............None.

The latest upgrades for Intel is their Core i processor line-up, based on the Sandy Bridge micro-architecture, and Ivy Bridge 22nm manufacturing process,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivy_Bridge_%28microarchitecture%29

[ Intel Core i was first based on the Nehalem micro-architecture,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nehalem_%28microarchitecture%29

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/535 ]

The Processor socket isn't even the same.
The motherboard chipset is of a different architecture.
The ram memory slots are DDR3 Sdram.

This means NOTHING from your old computer setup will work.

Doubt the Power Supply even has enough Wattage, or voltage on the 12 Volt power rail.

Means you need;
1) An Intel Core i processor
2) Motherboard that supports that Intel Core i processor
3) Ram Memory that is supported
4) Power Supply

In otherwords a new computer.

Upgrade with the hardware components you have?

Lemme see.................

The Intel D865GBF motherboard chipset is an Intel 865G,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

Scroll down to 865G in the left column. (Springdale)

A) Processor support:
Intel Celeron, Intel Celeron D, Intel Pentium 4, and Intel Pentium Extreme Edition.

Has to use 400MegaHertz, OR 533MHz, OR 800MHz; -> FSB.
(Front Side Bus)

Has to fit in a Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

B) Ram Memory support:
DDR Sdram at either 266MegaHertz, OR 333MHz, OR 400MHz.

Ram memory TYPICALLY, operates at HALF of the processor's Front Side Bus.

C) Graphics:
The graphics expansion slot is an AGP. Uses AGP 8X graphics cards,

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

D) Storage:
If you are using an IDE (PATA) harddrive, and not a SATA harddrive; there is another problem.

E) Optical Drive: (CD/DVD drive)
Can be IDE (PATA) optical drive/s, but newer mobo's are going to SATA.
(MOtherBOard)

Conclusion?
Forget about it. By the time you upgrade you could buy a budget computer, that uses at least an Intel dual core processor, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

Maybe Intel Core i processor, and DDR3 Sdram ram memory.

Plus there is one more factor:
The Operating System

When Windows is put on a computer it assigns hash values, to certain major hardware components.
For example;

A) Processor
B) Motherboard chipset, and BIOS program. (To include version and date)
C) Harddrive
D) Graphics chipset

Change any TWO of these components, and Windows will 'think' it is being stolen. Taken off of that harddrive, and put on another computer.
This = NO.

Microsoft User's License states, "One GENUINE copy of Windows per ONE computer"

(Microsoft makes one Master disk of the Operating System.
From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer )

You MAY be lucky, and the Windows activation screen will come up.
Then you just re-activate. (Not Register; Activate)
You also MAY not.

Means you will need the Restoration Disk for YOUR computer; or a new Genuine copy of Windows.

DO I sound discouraging? Sorry. Don't mean to be.
Just don't want you to waste your hard earned money, and also wind up with a dud for a computer.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
Regards,
joecoolvette

CPU upgrade


Your motherboard has a good support for various Processors. If you want to go for the latest then you can go for Palamino core Athlon 4.Its compatible all the KV7 series boards but all you have to check is "Till WHAT clock speed can your board support?" .

Cant switch to MSC on sansa e260


Try this instead:
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Upgrading


Hello densola,

Do you want to keep your current motherboard? If that is the case, then you'll need to...

Check w/ the motherboard manufacturer for documentation on that board. This will give you the maximum specs (RAM and CPU) that the motherboard will support.

As for changing the BIOS, that's a whole other matter. The BIOS is written to firmware that resides in an IC that is soldered onto the motherboard. You can, however, check w/ the manufacturer to see what their latest BIOS update is. In fact, you'll likely need the latest BIOS update in order to support the hardware changes.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

Thank you
BJ

Windows 200o pinstallation problem on intel 945 motherboard


I think that this can be bypassed on a per boot basis (press F7) on the boot where it asks you to press f8 if there is any problems. (before win2k flash screen)

you can get round this by updating your motherboard's BIOS

To upgrade your bios you need to follow the online instructions carefully.  (mis flashing your BIOS  can stop your board from loading at all)


FOR BOARD D945GCZ!!! WARNING  IF THIS IS NOT YOUR BOARD DO NOT CONTINUE AS THE FILES WILL BE WRONG!!!!

To upgrade to the latest bios  you first need to upgrade to ver 1788 (you cannot go direct to the latest version.. if your current BIOS Version is already 1788 you can skip this

please read and follow the instructions on this page http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=N&Inst=Yes&ProductID=2063&DwnldID=9165&strOSs=19&OSFullName=Windows*+2000&lang=eng
one this is completed you can upgrade to the latest version here
