SOURCE: I installed a new motherboard for a Gateway DX4710-05 + windows vista.CPU will not turn on but i do get a continunous bipp sound.Thank you for your help.

In this case do the following steps .
First Remove your computer's RAM and try to switch on the computer . If even after removing the RAM your computer makes the same continus beep sound then just click the RAM properly and insert it properly.
If again you your the same noise then your RAM is faulty.

SOURCE: needupgrading my cpu

ztz198,

On the top of every Intel processor is the sSpec Number, and the part number.

Intel Core2 Quad, that operates at a maximum frequency rate ('Speed'), of 2.66GigaHertz,.........hmmm,

Gateway Support indicates if the option is a Core2 Quad core, it will use Up To a 1333MegaHertz, Front Side Bus frequency rate, ('Speed'),

[1333MHz FSB]

http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2009/gateway/dx/dx4822/DX4822sp2.shtml

That 'narrows' it down to about 6 different processors.

Starting with the Yorkfield-6M Core technology, based on the 45NanoMeter architecture. (45nm),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#.22Yorkfield-6M.22_.2845_nm.29

1) Core2 Quad Q8400
2) Core2 Quad Q8400S
3) Core2 Quad Q9400
4) Core2 Quad Q9400S

Then on to the Yorkfield Core technology, based on the 45nm architecture,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

5) Core2 Quad Q9450
6) Core2 Quad Q9450S

The maximum frequency rate of 2.66GHz, is actually a low estimate. It is a little higher, and rounded off to 2.67GHz.

BIOS Setup might state 2.66GHz, but a better program like CPU-Z, IMHO; will state 2.67GHz. A more realistic figure.

Does it REALLY matter? Yes, and No.

This way when you get into a conversation, with fellow minded computer geeks, you will stand out as one who knows; what hardware components he/she is using.

Also helps you determine what voltage range is being used.
What Instruction Sets are being used.
What technology is being used, and use it to know if the upgrade CPU will indeed work.
Also whether a BIOS upgrade is needed.

I'm guessing it is the Intel Core2 Quad Q8400.

How?

I cheated, lol!,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883113110

Intel Core2 Quad Extreme at a maximum frequency rate of 2.93GHz?
That would be the Intel Core2 Quad Extreme QX6300,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_2_microprocessors#Yorkfield_.2845_nm.29

Based on the Kentsfield XE technology, and 65nm architecture.
Uses a 1066MHz FSB.

Motherboard chipset is the Intel G43,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

(Scroll down. Is not in 'alphabetical order'. It is past the P45, and G41 )

Yep. Should work.

Makes me wonder though, about how you addressed the Thermal Paste; situation.

The old Thermal Paste MUST be THOROUGHLY cleaned off, and fresh, new Thermal Paste PROPERLY applied.
CANNOT reuse old Thermal Paste.

CANNOT reuse a Thermal Pad, IF used.

http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/274

Do I also assume the inside of the computer case is spotlessly clean, to include the Heatsink sitting on the CPU; and the cooling fan for it?

Heatsink was sit on CPU flat?
Cannot be even a little tilted.

For this reason I remove the motherboard, and install Heatsink.
Then I can hold the motherboard at eye level, and look across.

If a tiny crack of light shows on one side edge, of the Heatsink; then the Heatsink is NOT sitting flat.

This = No.

Four screws with springs on them, hold the Heatsink to CPU, Joe?
Yes. I know. This is so you cannot over-tighten the Heatsink to CPU.

You CAN however keep tightening, until the motherboard breaks, though. (Jus sayin')

However, if the screws are not tightened in a crisscross fashion, and tightened in incremental stages; the Heatsink may not be sitting flat.

Will await reply before going further. Post back in a Comment.

joecoolvette

Does dual core processor support Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H mother board


The Foxconn P9657AA-8EKRS2H motherboard has a LGA 775 Socket. It will support Intel Core 2 Quad, Core 2 Extreme, and Core 2 Duo processors with an FSB of 1066 (800MHz). Thus is should support the dual core 775 processors. (Some Pentium 4, Pentium D and Celeron D CPUs may also be compatible with the board.)

I hope this helps.

Can i up grade my single core cpu pen4 550 3,4GHz to a Quad core or dual core either one would help


Depends on the socket type.. Socket 423 and 478 do not support core duo or quad core processor types. However, if you have LGA 775 (aka socket T) your motherboard will support the following:
Intel Pentium 4 (2.60 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Pentium Extreme Edition (3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Need a prossesor for motherboard


You can also use any other intel 775 socket processor as well. The dual cores are at the top of the list for performance that are compatible with that board, but if you're looking for a cheaper solution, I have that board with a 3GHz pentium 4 and it runs great. Here's a list of all the processors you can use.
Intel Pentium 4 (2.66 - 3.80 GHz)
Intel Celeron D (2.53 - 3.60 GHz )
Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Intel Pentium D (2.66 - 3.60 GHz)
Intel Pentium Extreme Edition
(3.20 - 3.73 GHz)
Pentium Dual-Core (1.40 - 2.80 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Duo (1.60 - 3.33 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Extreme (2.66 - 3.20 GHz)
Intel Core 2 Quad (2.33 - 3.00 GHz)
Intel Xeon (1.86-3.40 GHz)
Intel 'Core' Celeron (1.60 - 2.40 GHz)

Will this CPU be compatible with this MOBO?


Okay your Processor is not supported by your System Board. I will take some time and look to see what would be a good upgrade, but it may take a few days.

I have gigabyte series g31 m-es2L i want use memory pc 5300.... it's support with this mainboard ???? tx pls reply to : it_mid@yahoo.com


Hi,

First, clarification: the closest Gigabyte model is GA-G31M-ES2L... there is no "g31 m-es2L"

For this kind of question the easiest way to find the answer is from the manufacturer: Gigabyte

A quick search of their products results in:

http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=2889&ProductName=GA-G31M-ES2L

which states that up to 800mhz DDR2 (PC6400) is supported
( 667mhz (PC5300) is also supported. )

Generally with motherboards, if a higher speed of memory is supported, the lower speeds are also supported.

PS: mhz times 8 yields the PCxxxx number, PCxxxx divided by 8 yields the mhz number

Uppgrade to a faster processor?


Hi 
Pentuim D is a processor that has 2 x cpu in one and a core 2 duo has 2 cpu's plus 1 smart core bigger cache 
you can only upgrade to a E2140 or E2180 processor on that motherboard 
OR replace the board with a newer type

If you want to work the actual speed for the processor of a dual core take the speed for example dual core 1.8 x 2.1 =3.78 GHz 
Core 2 Duo  1.8 x 2.4 = 4.32 GHz
