Can i up grade my single core cpu pen4 550 3,4GHz to a Quad core or dual core either one would help


Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

I just want to know if I can upgrade the processoer and if so to what GHz? Can the motherboard support a PCIe 2.0 video card? emachine ET1831-01


First, yes, you can upgrade to a dual core pentium 2.93 GHZ..model E6500
as for video, yes, you can use a 2.0 pci-e video card as long as it is a 1x or a 16x standard. Those are the only standards supported by your computer, so if it is a pci-e 4x then it won't work, at least not for long...incompatible bus architecture.
I hope this helps !

Bios update for t5226... intel update will not work.. some people say it is locked by emachines. i am trying to put an e8400 in it, but i don't think that the processor is supported by the older bios...


It isn't the fact of the BIOS, it's the motherboard chipset.
The eMachines T5226 uses an Intel 945G.

This chipset only supports processors with up to a 1066MHz FSB.

Supporting Data:

1) eMachines T5226 specifications;

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T5226

2) List of Intel Chipsets, and more specifically the Pentium 4/Pentium D/Pentium EE chipsets,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_Chipsets

The Intel 945G is the 12th one down, or last in the list.
Looking across to the right, you can see the Intel processors supported, and the maximum FSB support.
(533/800/1066)

The motherboard's BIOS also won't let you overclock the FSB.

The Intel Core 2 8400 has a 1330MHz FSB,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#.22Wolfdale.22_.2845_nm.29

The Intel 945G also won't support Intel processors with the Wolfdale Core.

What motherboad is installed in an Emachine W3507 Desktop PC


The motherboard is a Socket 775 board originally manufactured by Elite Group (better known as ECS). When placed into this E-Machine, very few changes were actually made to the retail version of the 945G-M3 motherboard. This motherboard was built with upgrading in mind. It supports almost every Celeron D, Pentium 4 and Pentium D processor on the market.

UPGRADING FROM PENTIUM 3 PROCESSOR TO PENTIUM 4 PROCESSOR


To upgrade from a Pentium 3 to a Pentium 4 processor, you would have to replace the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor has more pins on it than the Pentium 3 and would not sit in a Pentium 3 motherboard.

Emachine T4150 CPU upgrade


Your processor is a Pentium 4 processor that uses there are 3 different type of sockets for Pentium processors. Socket 423, socket 478, and the latest one is socket 775.
Based on the information here:

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T-Series&model=T4150

Your MoBo has a Socket 478 and since it only support 400MHz bus, then your maximum upgrade is 2.0MHz, because all other devices faster than that, need higher bus speed that your Mother Board does not support.

Hope you find the answer useful.

Best regards,
/Farhad
