    What I would like to get is a complete list of all compatible processors for my MB so I can determine affordability to speed increase.
    Some processors are crazy expensive. Then there is the issue of hyper threading and if that is a compatibility factor. Thanks

I have the dell 9100 and recently my sound stopped working. No sound


Provided that the audio is not disabled in the BIOS or muted in the volume controls and that the driver is properly installed, then the next step is re-seating the F2 cooling fan assembly (The audio board is part of the fan assembly, don't ask me why)
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins9100/sm/fan.htm#1000550
If re-seating doesn't resolve then replacing the fan assembly is next.

Dell inspiron 9100 laptop computer boots up but


Your motherboard is not the problem. Try this. When you are on your main desktop right click your mouse. Click properties, click on settings. This will show you your monitor settings. Make sure that you have 32 bit clicked on quality. Change your screen resolution so your numbers are higher. Just change it to the resolution that you want. If this does not correct this go to this link to update your video driver http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_P4_9100&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=
Just copy and paste. This will take you to the page for your laptop. Just select your operation system. Hope this helps.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?


You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.

Run MS Vista on Dell 9100


The reason they told your daughter that is because either there isn't a powerful enough CPU and enough memory to support it and also there are no vista drivers for that laptop on Dell's website.

If you decide to put vista on that laptop your going to need to make sure that whatever hardware drivers vista doesn't detect, you'll need to search on the net to find vista compatible drivers if they are out there, it will be time consuming.

My recommendation from my own experience, make sure you have at least a 2GHz processor and 1GB or memory.

I have a dell inspiron 9100


It appears you have the latest BIOS revision for your notebook.

That chip is not supported by your motherboard/BIOS revision. You may want to contact dell, or keep checking the support download page to see if they release an update allow you to upgrade.

Dell xps m140


One of three things 1- virus, 2- failing processor, 3- failing motherboard component. Initially I would have said virus, but it would be constant, the mouse scroll wouldn't have any effect, and you've loaded a new operating system, so virus is out, then bad processor, but you've replaced it, so, we're left with bad motherboard component. This could be a component device that connects to the motherboard, or a chip, resistor, capacitor, etc... that is integrated into the board. You can determine which by disconnecting everything from the board except the screen and keyboard, then get the cpu usage level, if it's way up there, then it's going to be an integrated component, if not, then put the devices back, one at a time, until you see the usage spike, then you'll know which to replace. If it's an integrated component, then you can take it to a service center to have the exact problem component traced and replaced, or you can simply replace the motherboard.
