Question about Dell Computers & Internet
I replaced a damaged power supply and Motherboard on my Dell Optiplex GX280 P4 3.6GHz Mini-tower. The 4 prong 12V power connector had a fried pin (molten and blackened) on it when I dismantled the PC.
I got a new power supply and located a MB taken from a GX820 and attempted to utilize it as a replacement.
The new MB, Ser# CN-0H7276-13740-56F-01XG powers up and reports that the CPU is not supported.
Is there any way to determine which CPU's can be supported or would resetting the BIOS allow the CPU to work?
The physical configuration (3 PCI slots, 1 PCI-e, 2 SATA etc), the sockets (LGA775) are all the same as well as the intel chip (FW82801FB)
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
