The dummy voltage reg is just to complete the power loop, (as there is built in diags in the box) without the dummy the box will log errors against the empty volt reg slot. YES you do need the Voltage regulator for the 2nd slot if you intend to install a processor there.

Hello, I have the emachines EL 1200 - 06w PC desktop. I would like to connect an HP 4000 N printer. The printer has parallel connector. This computer does not. Is there a way to connect the printer?


On ebay search for USB to Parallel convertor. It is available, very inexpensive and useful. I have one for my older printer. You will need drivers from hp.com when it is connected to get it to work properly.

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200


The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

Soyo SY-7VMA-B -supports P-3 tualatin (.13u) CPU's?


when looking for a cpu for the socket 370, be sure to NOT get the socket 370 cpu that is made for servers.

this type requires a motherboard made specifically for that type cpu.

use a search engine to find out how to tell if it is a socket 370 server CPU, there is not enough space here for me to explain it.
in that search you will also find out how to determine the answer to your question about cpu's supported by that motherboard..

most socket 370 based systems run pretty well, so you have a good machine there, and it's worth your time to keep it running, and to upgrade it.

Asus P3V4X/S370-133/Tualatin 1.2Ghz


It turns out that while the BIOS will not appear to recognize the Pentium 3 1.4GHz Tualatin CPU (SL6BY) in my Asus P3V4X motherboard, Windows XP does! I apologize for my delay in posting this.

8d74c81.jpg
I have five extra SL6BY processors that I'd like to sell if anyone is interested. I need to make some money to upgrade the memory in this antique to 2GB (turns out that low density 512MB RAM does work in the P3V4X, by the way).

Thanks,
Eric
