Computer Errors My computer has an intel pentium D 925 processor running at 3.0ghz, it isn't overclocked, onlt default settings, all of my hardware is set to normal settings in the BIOS. My computer has many problems, these problems include programs crashing, programs not installing, the computer turning off and file copy errors. The things I have tried are getting new ram, so far I have tried 4 different sticks, all at the correct settings and type for my computer, also I have reinstalled windows many times. I have tested the cpu with many programs such as: OCCT, prime95, and Hot CPU tester, and they all came up with a CPU error, Prime95 more specifically found an error only in the second core, and found this only in mere seconds of starting the program, the 1st core didn't have any errors. I have run Memory test and memtest, the bootable memtest came up with no errors in ram. the memory test that runs in windows came up with many errors, i have scanned all sticks of ram sepertately and still found errors in every stick. I also read online that memory errors can appear but they are actually motherboard errors.

I might would try another powersupply. I've seen some cases where a power supply would intermittently fail and cause a computer to do some crazy things. Also, make sure that the case has a good bit of room around it so that it can properly vent. Sometimes heat can cause computers to go haywire. I would also recommend making sure it is elevated off of carpeted surfaces, and that should help you notice a great drop in the amount of dust induced into the case.

Cpu download driver e2140


CPUs dont use drivers because its a pre-boot hardware item. You can make changes to how it preforms in the bios or even overclock it but there is no drivers for processors.

Windows Not Showing & Not Supporting Actual RAM installed.


make sure that you don't need to overclock your setting (in BIOS ) so as to get full ddr3 frequency.That it, you need to overclock your CPU speed and if you want to work at great speed, try you upgrade you processor.
try a core 2 duo or a quad-core and make sure that it matches with your FSB, with maximum L catch ( 12 mb)

How to overclock Intel Pentium Dual Core E2140 1.6 GHz processor


The following link will tell you the very simple way to overclock this processor. Half way down the page you will find the header "OVERCLOCKING"

http://www.value-reviews.com/index.php?page=pentium-dual-core-e2140

"Since the architecture was designed for the 1066 MHz FSB, overclocking is as trivial as setting the FSB to 1066 MHz (266 MHz quad pumped).
...you instantly get a 2132 MHz CPU with little increase in temperature."

I have a amd semporn and accedently overclocked it


Next time you boot, go into your Bios and change the CPU settings back to normal. It's possible you did fry the processor but unless you set it back to normal you'll never know. Best of luck with your problem.

Problem in overclocking my Processor.


1: You problem is your power supply, PSU. When you try to give more power to your CPU by overclocking it, it doesn't have enough wattage, or power, to get the CD drive, or your sound card to work. This is why the CD drive works again when the CPU isn't overclocked. So, in this case, to overclock your CPU, you would have to get more power to your system by getting a more powerful PSU, or one with more wattage. How much you can overclock your processor depends on a variety of different things. Your RAM, PSU, HDD, CD drive, etc. I would not go past about 3.4ghz with your processor, however, a "max overclock" is hard to determine.

2: The maximum temp for your processor is 70C, 158F. I would try to keep your temperatures under 60C to ensure your processor doesn't "die early" on you. The multiplier cannot be changed, only the FSB can be changed. You should be able to create a "profile" in bios and set it to your default so that it loads up automatically when you boot up. Make sure you find a stable configuration before you make a default profile.

Overlocked my Intel Pentium 4 3.00 Ghz


You have to go into your bios and see what your front side bus and memmory speeds are. If you overclock you cpu, sometimes you need to underclock your memmory. Say step your memmory down to 333mhz and overclock your front side bus(fsb).
Normally your fsb is 200 and only increase it by mhz. Restart, go into windows. and see if it is stable.

I always use cpu-z and gpu-z to check all of my hardware settings. I use ati tool to overclock my x1950 and it is great. There really isnt any good cpu overclocking tools because its better to do it in the bios.

Do a specific search in google for your processor and overclocking.

OVERCLOCKING


The 800 MHz seems to be your system bus speed and not the CPU speed. They a related but no quite the same. Overclocking is usually defined as forcing something to operate at a higher speed than it was designed to. If you changed the 800 MHz to 1.6 GHz in your BIOS then yes it could be considered overclocking.

One thing I would like to mention is that when changing clock speeds in your BIOS, do it in small steps, if done in large steps it can cause system instability.

How can I overclock my 166mhz classic computer?


Overclocking is not really recommended to be done by normal users. For overclocking your computer, you should have extensive knowledge of the hardware of your computer.

Overclocking may result in a totally non-working computer, burnt up Processor and motherboard and the likes. Also, overclocking results in heating problems, so you need to have made the arrangements for taking care of this heat issue.

Basically overclocking means increasing the Clock Speed of your comuter. Suppose I say that I have a Pentium 4 - 2.4GHz computer, the 2.4GHz part is the clock speed, which is increase in overclocking. Surely the computers with higher clock speeds work faster but that comes at a price. A small mistake on your part and your computer is no more working.

There are various Forums and sites on the internet that discuss Overclocking and its intricacies in greater detail.
Here's a pointer:

PS: Search google for "overclocking" and you should get a lotta links to work with.
