Question about Dell Dimension 9200 PC Desktop
Have a Dimension 9200, let a friend use it for a month, long story short, during boot i get a "system does not support installed processor" It will boot about 50% of the time, the other it just freezes on the windows login screen.
I have double checked the processor, just to make sure my idiot friend didnt swap or anything, its the correct one. any thoughts?
This is really hard to say. Maybe he messed around in the BIOS settings and tried to overclock your processor. First thing I would do is to go into the BIOS (press F2 during startup) and check every setting. You can also reset it to default and see if that makes a difference.
Another possibility is that there is an issue with the RAM. Did you (or he) install new RAM? Look here to find a list of possible issues.
Check Dell's support page, to see if you can upgrade your BIOS.
Check your Device Manager (click Windowskey+R, type devmgmt.msc) for any unusual entries.
That's all I can think of right now. But please come back and post your findings (even if everything looks ok), so we can look into other places.
