Processor Upgrade For An IBM Netvista 8307-73G...

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!

Lost SP3 windows xp home edition version 2002 how do i get it back or do i need to I have automatic updates turned on when I look at programs beside it ,there no file size? also how do I fix error...


If you mean no file size showing up in "Add / Remove Programs"
thats because it's integrated / uninstallable but registered.

Error: 0x80070005, is that when you access "Microsoft Update"?

As for repairing SP3 Read more here:
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/help/learn-how-to-install-windows-xp-service-pack-3-sp3

and you probably have to go for option:
"Manually installing SP3 using the Microsoft Download Center or a CD"
Good Luck

Trying to upgrade cpu.


Here's a direct link to the service manual of the NetVista 8303-21A:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/netvista_pdf/24p2969.pdf

On page 13 of this manual:
Microprocessor (varies by model type): Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with 256 KB or 512 KB of internal L2 cache memory and Intel NetBurst™ micro-architecture.

It seems that the computer's motherboard does not support Intel P4 processors with more than 512 KB of internal L2 cache. That's why your P4 2.8GHz/1M/533 Prescott processor did not work.
You will have to either buy another processor with 512 KB L2 cache, or replace your motherboard with one which supports the new processor.

Can't upgrade the USB ports to Version 2.0


Hi cogilbert,
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.
