Question about IBM NETVISTA M42 - P4 2.4GHZ/512KB 256MB 40GB 48XCD DESKTOP(4X3) SOUNDMAX 845G ENET (830342S08)
I have an IBM Netvista Micro Tower (8307-73G) P4 2.4GHz PC (Running Windows XP Home Edition/SP3) & I was thinking of upgrading the Processor to 3.06GHz.
From what little I can find out, the Motherboard is Intel 845G which I'm told can run a 3.06GHz Processor in B1 Mode (& something about Hyper Threading). Unfortunately, I have NO IDEA what that means or whether that means I CAN upgrade or not.
If I can upgrade, do I have to enable Hyper Threading or is it automatic? Just HOW hard is it to change/swap Processors?
If the physical size, and numper of pins is the same as your current processor, you can most definately upgrade. Hyper threading is enabled through the bios, but as far as I know it's not neccesary.
Swapping out processors is fairly easy, and when you buy a new one, it should come with extensive instructions and pictures showing you exactly how to do it. Good luck!
