Dark spot on pinless processor

My Lenovo 20KT48AUS motherboard(pinless) has 1 socket pin bent and at that very place my intel p4 processor has got a dark spot (instead of golden) which was not there few days back, my computer sometimes shuts off suddenly and that's unpredictable, want to know the cause and solution of the problem? If any pin is missing, will it affect the performance?

The computer tends to shut down when the procssor ovrheats and if u removed the processor or the heatsync for that matter you have to remove old termo pate and replace it with new termo paste otherwise your brossesor will burn out

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Uppgrade of processor!

looks like that mobo can only suppoport up to 53 mhz front side bus for a celeron d processor
wht tht means is tht u can get any cpu tht has the front side bus up to 533mhz with the 775 socket forur motherboard

and forpentium 4 its 800mhz and agian any cpu with up to 800 mhz front side bus and 775



so ur best cpu for tht mobo would be the SL7RR it supports hyperthreading


here a direct link to intel'ssite

http://processorfinder.intel.com/details.aspx?sSpec=SL7RR

SL7RR
3.40 GHz
800 MHz
109.6 W

yes



pls rate my answer if i helped u

SOURCE: how to recognizea pinless or pinned processor

A pinless (Pentium 4) processor has no pins.
Just a flat bottom with around an extra 297 connections to the motherboard.
You cannot fit one to a pinned socket.
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Can the sSpec number affect the compatibility with my motherboard or not?

While both processors operate at a Frequency Rate of 3.8GHz, (3800MHz), and have a FSB of 800MHz,
the SL8PY uses the R0 stepping, (R-Zero), and the SL7Z3 uses the N0 stepping. (N-Zero)
[FSB = Front Side Bus]

Apparently the Northbridge of the motherboard chipset, won't support the R0 stepping.
[Northbridge for Intel is called the MCH, or IMC.
Memory Controller Hub, and Integrated Memory Controller, respectively]

The 'Motherboard Chipset' is the Northbridge/Southbridge chipset.
'Chipset' is a slang term for IC. Integrated Circuit.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

Stepping is a design change to the same model of processor. There may be a few stepping changes, or many. (A0, B0, C0, Do, A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, B3, and so on) Just depends on what the engineers come up with, before the next model comes out.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_2M_.2890.C2.A0nm.29

Yes, I also checked Intel Support for the Intel D915PGN motherboard, and supported processors. I did not see a BIOS update for using a SL8PY processor either, in the Downloads section.

SOURCE: CONFUSION WITH INTEL CORE DUO AND INTEL PENTIUM DUAL CORE!

You are worrying about nothing.

Intel Pentium Dual Core and Intel Celeron Dual Core are both Intel Core Dual processors.

The performance rate is mesured compared to a single core processor so your 2.2GHz dual core will do the same amount of work as a 4.95GHz single core.

Can i replace my p4 processor with dual core processor ( my system is 965z intel motherboard lenovo company)


the sockets for P4 and a dual core are different. you will have to replace your motherboard. getting a new desktop will be a better option.

Dark speck on processor


It may be the temperature problem. If the heatsink and the fan does not sit tight on processor the heat from the processor will not be dissipated properly and the heat rises up and the processor shuts off as soon as it starts working. So please see that the heat sink and the fan on the mother board sits tight. Also apply heatsink paste on the surface of the processor which comes in to contact with the heatsink. It comes filled in Syringe and retails around Rs.10-20 only. I think it will solve your shotdown problem.

How to recognise a pin and pi nnless processor


A pin Processor has metal pins on the bottom of it.

For an example let's use an Intel Pentium 4 processor, that fit in a Socket 478 processor socket.

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/TYPE-Desktop%20Pentium%204%20Willamette.html

Viewing the link above, observe the green square under the grayish metallic looking square.
The green square is a circuit board.
(Width and length, about the length of your first digit on your thumb)

The grayish metallic square, is a metal shell cover over a Chipset.
Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

The Integrated Circuit here is the Processor.
The Processor is connected to the green circuit board. (PCB. Printed Circuit Board)

On the bottom of the green circuit board are contact pins. In this case 478 of them. (478 pins)

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_4/Intel-Pentium%204%201.7%20GHz%20-%20RK80531PC029G0K%20%28BX80531NK170G%29.html

The tiny metal contact pins fit down into matching socket holes, in the processor socket.

A Socket 478 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

(You can click on the photo to the upper right to enlarge it.

The next design to come out, has the Processor with contact pads, (Pinless), and the processor socket has the contact pins.
An LGA 775 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGA_775


Example of a Pentium Dual Core's bottom side. (LGA 775 processor socket is used),

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium_Dual-Core/Intel-Pentium%20Dual-Core%20E2220%20HH80557PG0561M%20%28BX80557E2220%20-%20BXC80557E2220%29.html


There you have it.

A 'Pin' processor has metal contact pins on the bottom.

A 'Pinless' processor has metal contact pads.

Which one is better nd more cheaper,between a pinless nd a pinned processor?? #Urgent please!!


Neither type is better or worse than the other if you're talking about performance (speed). AMD processors have traditionally always been pinned because their socket types require them to be. Intel also used pinned processors as well but since the Core2 and Pentium D lines came out a few years ago, they have ditched the pinned design for something in my opinion that is easier to install. Instead of pins they now have a more flat design with what appear to be receptor-like squares that don't actually physically plug into the cpu socket on the motherboard. With the AMD processors you have to be careful not to bend the pins otherwise it will damage the cpu and in the worst case scenario render it inoperable. Sometimes you can bend the pins back into place.

But in the end, performance-wise they're all the same, you just have to be careful when handling them.

How to install CPU- Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 into a asus barebone system P4-P5N9300pc please?


This particular CPU is not on the list of processors supported by this board. See "CPU Support List" tab:

ASUS P4-P5N9300 Spec

How to install Socket LGA 775 CPUs:

Lift up the cpu slot load plate (which covers the pins and also locks the cpu in place) and install the processor slowly, vertically and carefully into the socket without bending any of the tiny pins in the motherboard socket. Lock the load plate.

The advent of the LGA 775 form factor moved the tiny pins from the CPU to the motherboard socket. Great for Intel, not so great for motherboard manufacturers. Now bent pins are the responsibility of the board makers. Customers with bent pin problems are no longer contacting Intel.

NO. you cannot install DUO to *********** board. the DUO is pinless and the P4 3.06 is pin type if you want to upgrade your PC you have to replace the mother board too.

Upgrading


To upgrade from pentium 3 to P4 you have to change alot of the hardware.

You need a NEW P4 Socket mPGA 475 Motherboard.
New DDR RAM
New 478 PIN Processor.

You can use the old CD rom and Hard drive and any other PCI card but You Need the Mentioned Hardware to Upgarde.
