Upgrade of microprocessor

I reckon this upgrade is not possible because the m/b hardware doesn't support the SL7E6. It's not listed amongst the processors available for that model (highest speed one listed at 3.2GHz), and the specs imply that L2 cache must be 512MB or less. (This answer is not definitive)

Intel pentium m processor 765 2.1ghz

This might be a problem in your computer's BIOS (Basic Input Output System) settings. You can refer to your manual on how to access the BIOS, but it is usually accessed by pressing F2 or the DEL (delete) key on your keyboard a few seconds after you turn it on. Once in the BIOS you want to find the option to "reset to default" settings. Select that, save the BIOS settings and try again.

If this doesn't work I suggest contacting Dell customer support directly for help.

Installed athlon 64 x2 5200+ in dell demension c521 and got a black screen! What's The Problem???

Well, I see two issues that this could possibly be the most likely is that your computer will not support the 5200 chip. The second is that the Video card has come unplugged. All the Documentation indicates the board uses a 3200 and there is no section for upgrading to a faster chip. The link below is a link to the Manual on your computer in pdf format.

Make sure the video card is properly installed and attempt to get into the BIOS to see if the CPU is recognized. If the BIOS fails to identify the CPU you are using it is not compatible with the motherboard and you will have to replace it. If you have any diagnostic lights activated then look up the sequence on page 48 of the manual I provided a link to. Only Dell Support could tell you if there is a jumper you can change to make this newer CPU work but I doubt that CPU is going to work in that computer. Name brand system are hard to upgrade because of this weakness.

Hi I just bought a Intel Core 2 Quad q8400 for my gigabyte GA-G31M-S2L. It won't boot up!!! It freezes when I try to enter bios setup and if I do manage to get in, it freezes at the options screen. It...

What size power supply are you running? If you are not running a minimum of 400watt , I would anticipate issues with this type of processor. Since it is freezing right away, it could be bad memory. You can try to download a memory test tool to verify.

Secondly, you may want to reset the board by moving the jumper from normal mode to reset mode.

last thing, it's not impossible for a processor to be bad. Since it is an Intel processor; it should have a 3 year warranty on it. Any dealer who sells Intel should be able to warranty replace it for you.

5 year old Medion Computer - Med MT247A - now running very slow with weak wireless signal

The most common reason for slow processing speed is insufficient RAM memory.

Increase the RAM, if RAM available is no more than 512MB, then it must be upgraded.

Check also your hard drive state. If you have less than 1GB free, that will slow down the system. Go to Start>>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Defregmenter and do a Defrag of the hard disk.

If you have at least 1 GB RAM, and you took care of the hard drive, then you can check the process starting up on their own and remove the useless one, or spot mala-ware that can affect speed. You can use a software like Hijack This, and search on google te function of each process started on the list reported by the software.

You can download Hijack this here MajorGeeks | If download does not start, then click at the top of the page, where it says Click Here If It Does Not.
Be careful if you delete the wrong files using this software you can harm the system, and Windows may not work properly.

If you think you have malaware you can also install Spy Bot, and do a system scan. Download Spybot from The home of Spybot.

If all the above does not work, and there is no malaware, then you usually reinstall the system.

Check also the bios settings, BIOS can downgrade the CPU speed on default , even if this is uncommon on recent BIOS.

If a computer is still slow with a fresh system and enough resources then it is one of those rare occasions when you have an hardware fault.
Hardware that can cause slow down is: RAM CPU Motherboard HD Video card.

Some tips on procedure can damage your windows installation. Do not download Hijackthis software and do not change BIOS settings and do not touch hardware unless you are sure of what you are doing.

Upgrading processor

Do not know much about mac but can you change settings on M/board by using jumpers to upgrade bus speed etc or in BIOS

1. Check user documentation for supported CPUs for your system.
2. If 2.0GHz CPU is supported on your system, you don't need any additional software.
3. I would upgrade the BIOS firmware first. It might have an additional CPU support.
4. Read information from you old CPU. Exemple: 1.4GHz/256/400. 1.4GHz is a speed of your CPU. 256 is a 256k cache, and 400 is 400MHz BUS speed. In general you can boost speed to 2.0GHz or more and cache to 512k, just keep your BUS speed to 400
5. Post your system model or your motherboard model. That information would help in determining the maximum speed of the CPU for your system.

Good lick!

A disk read error occured

Your system BIOS no longer recognizes your processor. I'm going to assume you haven't replaced the processor recently, in which case it is a bios error. Can you enter the bios on startup, or does this occur before that? On most computers there will be a message saying something along the lines of "press F1 to enter setup" - of course, it could be F1, F2, F10, F11, F12, DEL or ESC... or possibly another key Try hitting all of those and see if it takes you to a BIOS menu. If you can't get to the BIOS, you're going to have to replace the motherboard. If you can get into the bios, you may be able to detect your processor from there. Without knowing specifically what bios you are using, or what motherboard so I could find the bios information, I can't say more. If you can get into the BIOS, it should tell you what version it is (usually on the top somewhere). Get me that information and we can go from there. If you can't get into the BIOS, it's time to replace your motherboard. Or, honestly, for a system of that age it might be cheaper to just buy a new (or used) computer to replace it.

Need help to set-up fcpga processe on asus P3V4X with asus-S370-L

Hi Neel, Are you running the board in JumperFree Mode? If so you shouldn't have to change any jumpers or dip switches. And the S370-L adapter card should NOT have to be set either, it should auto detect both processor core and voltage. If you don't know how to set the board up in JumperFree Mode let me know I'll walk you through it. If you ARE running in JF Mode then I'd contact Asus support. You have the right BIOS update to be able to support that proc but Asus had some issues with Intel chipset support with certain versions of the 370 adapter cards. (issues with both the S370-DL and the S370-L if I remember right) Let me know what happens, Dude
