Question about Computer Processors

1 Answer

Slow running I have a Pentium 4 dual core 3.4 processor on a Gigabyte 945 mobo. The graphics card is a GeForce 6800, and there is 1GB of memory. OS is XP Pro. The PC is running slow MOST of the time, the symptoms being CD & DVD playback slow and stuttering, and the mouse movement jerky (mouse is perfect!) In the performance monitor, processor 2 is at about 50%, processor 1 about 10%. There are no apps or unnecessary processes running, all startup progs are cancelled, and there is no apparent hard drive activity. This is not a permanent condition, and will sometimes clear after a period of time. I cannot work out what the PC is doing while the problem exists. I have all the usual anti-virus, spyware progs, firewall etc. up to date. Any ideas or solutions would be gratefully received. atariman

Required Intel SL9CB Pentium, 3 GHz compatible motherboard

Pentium 4 HT, Model 531. sSpec number SL9CB.

OK. So far I know you need a motherboard that has an LGA 775 processor socket; needs to support Intel processors that are Single-Core, and with an 800MegaHertz Front Side Bus.
(800MHz FSB)

Ram Memory? Dunno. K
Do know the rule of thumb is, that the Ram Memory typically operates at Half of the processor's FSB.
Therefore can only assume the ram memory is DDR Sdram, and operates at 400MHz. (PC-3200)

You haven't stated the motherboard chipset that was used, OR what computer manufacturer, and model number; this mobo came out of.

Also didn't state if you are using a graphics card, and what kind it is.
(PCI, AGP, or PCI Express)

This isn't a 'guess-ti-mate'. Exact specifications are required in order to replace the motherboard.
Otherwise you may not be able to reuse the Ram Memory, or graphics card. (IF used)

Awaiting needed information. Post back in a Comment.

It depends on your operating system. If you have a 64bit OS then you'll use the 8GB. If you're using a 32bit OS you'll use about 3.65GB.

Upgrade from pentium 915 D to dual core

The pentium d 915 is a dual core processor, albeit a bad one. You should check google for info on your motherboard to see if it supports Core 2 duo's/ Core 2 quads. I have an E6600 overclocked to 3.0ghz and it still plays games perfectly paired with my 8800gt 512mb and 4gb's ram. I definately recommend upgrading to a core 2 duo. I used to have a pentium d 915 and it was bad for gaming and the e6600 blows it out of the water. You most likely wont find the e6600 anywhere as it is nearly 3 years old. Look at sites such as toms hardware to find a good core 2 duo.

Good luck- an t-adh leat!

Re aspire 7104 being upgraded to duo core processor

No it cant be updated

Your acer aspire is based on the 910GML chipset

The Mobile Intel® 910GML Express chipset is optimized for the Intel® Celeron® M processor.

Here you can compare the 910gml chipset and 945 which is used by the core 2 duo.,7419&familyID=7&culture=en-US

As you can see on the page there are key difrences between the chipsets other runs on ddr2, yours on ddr. the FSB support is 400 on yours and 533 / 667 on the 945.

also you can see the supported processor familys right there.

you can look for a
Intel® Celeron® M processor,
Intel® Celeron® M processor Ultra Low Voltage (ULV)

Upgrade cpu with maximum FSB of 400MHz
