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!

Can't load on Windows XP home SP3 system.


The software is probably just too old for the system. I would suggest Jargon Naturally speaking as a replacement. It is a very good voice recognition product and not too expensive.

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.

IBM Netvista PC is not ready for Windows XP, you should update its BIOS on its version so that you can install windows XP, maybe ACPI is not ready yet for this motherboard compliance to Windows XP, so download it at www.ibm.com

Nope.

Without the disk you cannot upgrade to Windows XP Pro, because both Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional are two different edition / version.

So if you want to upgrade your current operating system from Windows XP Home then you have to spend money to buy Windows XP Pro

But if you want to upgrade the Service Pack then you can very well do it.

Click the link below to download Windows XP SP3 for your edition and install it. Before installing it make sure you have turned off your security programs or better install it from the SafeMode

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.
