Not without major case modifications. Dell uses Dell specific rather than industry standard motherboards on all their systems except the newest XPS line. Sorry.

My Dell Dimension 9100 will not power on. The ON button is not lit at all. When I take the cover off, the green light on the motherboard is lit. The fan is not running. There is no humming. It is just...


Does sound like your motherboard defo, It could be that the power button is not wired correctly to the board, but that is prob no the case if you have not taken any of the wires out, or messed with the inside before the problem happened.

You can get a replacement board, try going on to ebuyer.com, ( http://www.ebuyer.com/store/Components and select motherboards on the left) they do a wide selction and at good prices. Chances are you can get the same board, or one simiar just by entering the make of the board (have a look on the board, for somthing like asus, gigabyte, asrock etc) and also for the type of proceser you have (i.e an AMD or a Intel)

if its unmodified, then its probally an Intel board with a "T-Socket" slot otherwise known as a 775

get one of these and u can keep your processor, RAM etc..

that of course, if it is your motherboard!! If you've replaced the PSU thats your best bet.

i wouldnt do it your self unless you are confident in doing so

I am trying to replace my motherboard with the exact same one but can't find what I need to order it. I've done searches but keep finding different answers.


From my searching I find that it is a Nvidia 520LE.

With much tact and diplomacy, I would like to 'talk' to you straight up.

That motherboard is junk.
The motherboard is just an ordinary, ATX form factor motherboard. The most common used form factor size, used in personal computers.
Uses the Nvidia nForce 4 chipset.

By the time you buy an exact replacement motherboard, you will have spent the same, or more, than you could spend for a much better motherboard. (That will fit! Only the I/O shield at the back of the computer, may not line up with the motherboard below. The motherboard does come with an I/O shield anyway)

I found from my recent search also this motherboard,
1.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135075&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Motherboards+-+AMD-_-ECS+%28EliteGroup%29-_-13135075

$70 US.
Instead of the Socket 939 processor socket, or AM2 processor socket, you have now, you will have an AM2+ processor socket.
If your processor you have now, is an AM2 processor socket model, it will work on this motherboard.

Your ram memory won't work. You have DDR ram memory. This motherboard uses DDR2 at 800MHz. (Or also can use DDR2 at 1066MHz)
This = a PLUS!

You can buy 2GB's of DDR2 ram memory that operates at 800MegaHertz, for $30 at Tigerdirect. (Patriot Dual Channel-PC6400. It's two ->1GB sticks of dual channel capable ram)

Uses the AMD (Nvidia based) 780G Northbridge chip, and the AMD SB700 Southbridge chip.

Here are the specifications of this motherboard straight from ECS,

Hardware upgrade required for autocad 2009


Your existing CPU will not work with that motherboard. The AM2+/AM2 processor slot is for AMD processors only. For this motherboard, you will need one of the following processors: Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

I want to know what speed my board will handle for the processor


Per Dell documentation, your computer has a NVIDIA motherboard with AM2 socket. Both the dual core processores support this socket. So, the board should be able to take it. However, the Maximum temperature and wattage for both is different.

Upgrade compatibility continued


hiya

as this pc is skt 775 and has dual core support then it is quite likely that the e5200 will work but may need a bios update to support this cpu...

just goto dells site and choose the pc u have and select drivers then download the lastest bios, transfer it to the dell pc run it as its a self extractor system will reboot perform the update then bobs ya uncle.......pop in new cpu and hey presto cheapo ugrado

#and as for the graphics card you will need to accertain which pcie version u have as most dell pc's only have pcie v1 so wont be able to handle the newer gpu's on the market.......

hope this helps
