You cannot fix a processor, the only way is by replacing, but in most cases if it burns or if something happens to it, the motherboard goes with it. You might want to ask before buying a new or used CPU if you can return it since your motherboard might also be bad.

How to Remove a AMD Processor


<p>Removing a processor AMD is a work that can only be done with a screwdriver in less than 30 minutes. The processor AMD is a central processing unit (CPU) with 939 pins, which are connected to the motherboard. Removing the processor is an issue to withdraw from the motherboard with your hands after you remove the heatsink from the chip.<br /> <p> <br /> <p>1. Turn off the computer and unplug the power cord before removing the AMD processor. Unplug the connector on the back of the computer case and remove the screws, the lid of the computer, in the case with a screwdriver.<br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Slide the computer cover and set aside. Pull the cord that connects the heatsink fan on the motherboard with one hand.<br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Lift the lever on both sides of the fan heatsink, so straight up and remove the plastic clips on the sides of the sink on the motherboard.<br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Pull the heatsink and fan on the motherboard and set it aside.<br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Lift the AMD processor motherboard and carefully remove it from the computer.<br />

I have a Compaq Presario SR2011WM which powered down on me. I get a solid light in the back and when I hit the power button I get a solid light on the front also which will not shut off unless I unplug it....


Well, unplugging something (I'm not quite clear on what you unplugged), especially if it supplies power to the processor usually doesn't fix things. If you mean the plug that looks like http://www.pcguide.com/byop/diagrams/figure9.jpg then it helps supply power to the motherboard, and I'm not sure what unplugging it would fix but it is more likely a motherboard issue than a processor issue if unplugging it fixed the problem. Regardless because this is an older and off the shelf computer upgrading it will be difficult due to the fact that celeron's don't have the same socket type as newer processors. If it is a motherboard issue then you will need a new motherboard and a new processor for that motherboard. Essentially the easiest and most cost effective thing would be to get a new computer.

please purchase the processor that is compatible to your motherboard. if the motherboard can be upgrade to a higher speed of processor then purchase it. if not, stick to the required specs. if you still want to upgrade, replace the motherboard, processor and the memory.

Can I upgrade Celeron -D 2.26Ghz to the same mobo ie. E219882


Intel E219882 motherboard, also know as Intel D850GB?

No.
1) The motherboard has a Socket 423 processor socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_423

This processor socket has the socket holes, while the processor has the pins. Has 423 socket holes.

The Intel Celeron D 315 uses an LGA775 processor socket.
LGA775 is also known as Socket T. Has 775 pins in the processor socket. The processor used has the socket holes. 775 of them.

Celeron D 315 spec's,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#Celeron_D

2) The Intel D850GB motherboard only supports Single Core processors. Not Dual Core like a Pentium D.
Must be an Intel single core processor, that fits in a Socket 423 processor socket.

Intel only made processors to fit the Socket 423 for about 2 years. Intel had a deal with Rambus, for memory to fit Intel's motherboards, for this period of time. The deal fell out, and Intel moved on.

The Intel D850GB motherboard Only uses RIMM memory modules, ('Stick/s') made by Rambus.
(RIMM. Rambus Inline memory Module)

Highly expensive, overrated ram memory.

Intel D850GB motherboard specifications,

in blue, and left-click on it.

After you click it may take a few seconds for the PDF file to show.

Sorry to be a bummer, but wanted to give you in-depth info about your motherboard.

After i change the processor on the IBM thinkcentre M series the monitor green light just flicer all the time while the pc is on the cd rom green light just flicker on/off all the time the fans are running...


there are two reason for this problem. and the most probably is the first reason below.
1. your motherboard is not supporting the installed processor. although it powered up all the components and parts but the processor dont work at all.
2. even if your motherboard supports the processor and it works fine then there is problem with the VGA.

Finally to check the motherboard and processor whether they are working or not.
please remove RAMs from motherboard and start your computer and now if it gives the beeps sounds then motherboard and processor are working. and if you dint listen any beep sound then the installed processor is not being supported by motherboard.

Please dont forget to RATE my answer.

Upgrading the processor, do I need a new motherboard as wel (for a dual core)


What type of motherboard do you have?

You will first need to get that information to find out what types of CPU's your motherboard will support before buying one that might not.
