Where can I find the newest Motherboard-Type to change existing: HP d530 CMT (PE 934S) - INTEL PENTIUM 4 ht - CPU 2,8 GHz 512 MB DDR-RAM 40 GB HDD Grafik on Board Intel 82 865 G (I think: it is...


I see them all over Ebay for about $50. (Buy Now)

IF, you go for a newer style motherboard, perse one that will use Dual, or Quad Core processors, 4 or more GB's of Ram Memory, and a PCI Express graphics slot that is the 2.0 version, you will need to buy a new fresh copy of Windows, and install it.

Don't bother with a Restoration Disk, if you have one.

This is from your statement, "Where can I find the NEWEST........"

The motherboard you have now, has an Intel 865G motherboard chipset.
(i865G. The i stands for Intel.
The Northbridge chip is Intel 82865G. The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH4)


The max processor that can be used, is an Intel Pentium 4 with an 800MHz FSB.

(MHz = MegaHertz.
Mega = Approximately 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second

A Pentium 4, 3.2GHz processor can operate up to, {Theoretically} 3200 Million Cycles per Second.

Also stated as 3.2 Billion Cycles per Second.
Giga = approximately 1 Billion
3.2GHz
3.2 Billion Cycles per Second.

FSB = Front Side Bus)

Woo-hoo, a Single core processor that might hit 3.4GHz. (Don't think the Intel 865G will support the Pentium 4 3.8GHz. Not really sure if it will support more than an Intel Pentium 4 at 3.0GHz, due to the BIOS program)

The max amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
Not bad if it isn't DDR Sdram at 266MHz, (PC2100)

Problem is, IT IS.

Graphics is an AGP 4X expansion slot, or Integrated graphics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

I've seen barebones computers lately that has an AMD Phenom Quad Core processor, (2.1GHz ).

Can use up to 8GB's of DDR2 Sdram

A PCI Express 2.0 graphics slot, (With a mediocre graphics card. Nvidia GT9500, if memory serves.

S-M-O-K-E-S a computer that uses an AGP graphics slot, that is 4X in 'speed'. lemme tell ya'), and sells for around $299

Just install the Operating System.

What makes you think the mobo, (MOtherBOard), is defective?
Do you see bad capacitors?

http://www.capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KN6_-8fYHo0

Computer clean inside, as well as inside the Power Supply?
Power Supply operating okay, or does it have a weak voltage power rail?

Fans, to include the Processor fan, Computer case fan/s, and Power Supply fan, clean? Spinning correctly? Or spin a few times, and stop? Or not spin at all. They need to spin ALL the time.

[When Windows is installed on a computer, it assigns hash values to certain major hardware components inside the computer.

Examples such as;
A) Processor:

B) Harddrive:

C) Motherboard: Specifically the motherboard chipset, and Integrated Graphics chip, (IF used), plus the BIOS program, and version.

D) Graphics chip:

Whether the GPU is soldered to the motherboard, (Integrated Graphics), or on a removable adapter card.
(Graphics card. Also stated as Video card)

{GPU is Graphics Processing Unit;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU }

Change any Two of these hardware components, and Windows will want to be Activated again.

There is no foolproof method to get to the Windows Activation screen, from a users standpoint. Call Microsoft, see if they can guide you.

IF, the Activation windows does come up however, Left-click on it.
I suggest clicking on the option 'Call Microsoft'.

Tell them you want to activate, (Free), and follow their instructions.

This means you want the SAME type of motherboard, that came out of your HP Compaq D530 Convertible Mini-Tower.

If you have documents on your harddrive you need to save, just but an economical external enclosure, (IDE. Also known as PATA), and install the Harddrive in it.
Now plug the external enclosure's USB cable into any available USB port, on another working computer.

You WON'T be saving programs you have downloaded, or installed, and also the Windows program.

Example of an IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

What are the hardware requirements for this motherboard in the way of memory, and graphics card? I have a pc2700 256M chip that is only seeing 191M of the total ram. Does it require ddr pc2100 instead? And...


Jeff, some of the system's ram memory is being borrowed. If you are using Integrated Graphics, this is where it is going.

[Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard.

The GPU is soldered to the motherboard. (Hence you plug the monitor cable into the motherboard, via a VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector )

A dedicated graphics (adapter) card has it's own GPU.
(Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics uses some of the system's resources. The Processor, and Ram Memory.

A dedicated graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU, and graphics ram memory)


PC2100 is DDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 266MHz.

PC2700 is DDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 333MHz.

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

[Frequency Rate:
Proper 'computer speak' for Speed.
'Speed' is slang.

DDR Sdram:
Double Data Rate Sdram
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory

MHz.
MegaHertz
Mega = Approximately 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

PC2100 can operate Up To a frequency rate of 266 Million Cycles per Second.
PC2700 - 333 Million Cycles per Second ]

No, using PC2100 is going backwards, and will not help increase the Amount of ram memory, seen by the computer.

According to eMachines Support, the T2642 desktop computer's motherboard, uses an Intel 845GV motherboard chipset.

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T2642

[Chipset, and Chip are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

The motherboard chipset used for the technology of the T2642 motherboard, is the Northbridge, and Southbridge chipset.

(Motherboard's for the Intel Core i3, i5, and i7, do not use this motherboard chipset technology)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.
Memory Slots = Ram Memory slots ]

The Northbridge chip handles the faster processes of the computer.
The Processor, Ram Memory, and high speed graphics.

High speed graphics being AGP, or PCI Express.
Not a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot.

Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, is a slower process of the computer.

Slower processes of the computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

Northbridge (computing)

(At the end of the Northbridge article's first sentence, you will see - southbridge, in blue.

The monitor will not get a connection. I need to know where the video card is located.


This is eMachines Support, T6420 desktop computer>Specifications, and downloads page for the User Guides,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T6420

The eMachines T6420 does not come with a graphics card from the factory.
It comes with Integrated Graphics.

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard

The GPU is soldered to the motherboard.
(Graphics Processing Unit,

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

OR,
someone has installed a graphics card, into the PCI Express x16 slot on the motherboard.

You can determine real easily if your computer is using Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card.

If it is using Integrated Graphics, the monitor will be plugged into the I/O area, on the back of the computer, and into a VGA port,

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

(I/O area;

I/O = Input/Output

The I/O area, is the area that has the rectangular metal shield, and Input/Output devices are plugged into this area.

Devices such as a Keyboard, Mouse, Printer, and so on )

HOWEVER, with the motherboard used in an eMachines T6420, the I/O area could also have a white DVI port.

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

This was an option offered. The DVI port still connects to the Integrated Graphics on the motherboard.

The eMachines T6420 uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
(Micro Star International, Inc.)

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-detailsInactive.asp?EdpNo=2665522

The above link is to,
1) Show the motherboard
2) Provides a link to the Motherboard Manual

Looking at the photo of the motherboard, you will see two long White slots.
Above these two slots you will see a longer White slot.

The bottom two white slots are PCI expansion slots.
The top longer slot is a PCI Express x16, expansion slot.

This is where a PCI Express graphics card would go.

I would like you to scroll to the bottom of the page, to the Product Resources heading.

Under it is a link to the Motherboard Manual, for the MSI MS-7207 motherboard.
Also known as K8NGM2-L

Left-click on the blue - MSI K8NGM2 Series Manual.

You will be looking at a blank white page, as the PDF file downloads in the background.
Took 34 seconds with a medium speed DSL connection, for me to download it.

NOW,
No Signal on the monitor, means the monitor is Not receiving a video signal.

1) Check the monitor cable if it is removable. Use it on another working computer to insure it is good.

2) If the monitor cable proves to be good, the next area to check would be the graphics.

If the computer is using Integrated Graphics, and no one has installed a graphics card, the test would be to install a graphics card, and plug the monitor into it.

Computer off, unplugged from power, Anti-Static precautions are observed before reaching inside the computer, and handling the graphics card.

I don't think the problem is the graphics. Could be wrong, but we'll see.
Let's carry the diagnosis past the graphics for now.

I think the problem could be due to a bad Power Supply.
Weak Voltage power rail.

Enough power to light lights, and spin fans (Perhaps), but not enough to turn the Processor on.
(Fans may be spinning, or may just spin a few times, and stop)

1) ALL the lights use Less than 1 Watt of power
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.

I have a Silicon Image 164 ADD DVI card added to my HP desktop DVI-D access card in an effort to get a dual monitor configuration. I get an exact clone in the second monitor. I have an HP compaq desktop...


If the Intel graphic card is part of the motherboard, you need to disable this in the BIOS. You need to install the Silicon grpahic driver, then you will be able to configure the screen resolution etc for each monitor.
