Question about IBM IntelliStation E Pro 570 (689357U) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Windows XP will not shut down.

Hi I have an IBM Intellistation PRO server unit. Its a P4 socket 423 mainboard using paired RAMBUS RDRAM memory. I recently upgraded the unit pretty much maxing it out. I put 1 gig of memory and a Willamette 2.0/256/400 P4 CPU. and replaced windows 2000 with Windows XP Pro. Also replaced the scsi drive with an 80gig IDE drive. Now heres the problem It all works great but when I turn off the computer through windows the hard drives power down the screen shuts down but theCPU and motherboard fans continue to run. I put a windows XP shut down patch in but still no go. I have to hold the button in to completely shut down the computer. Any thoughts? thanks..............Chris

    Wonder if the power supply is acting up, not shutting down all the way.

    reseat all the power connectors from the power supply and then turn it back on and see if you can shut down properly.

My pc wont boot up how can i tell what core it is? its a Dell with 2.8 ghz intel


If this holds true,

http://www.ehow.com/facts_7577204_specifications-dell-model-dhm-computer.html

,the Dell computer is a Dimension 8250.

If that holds true, then NO. The motherboard chipset does NOT support using a dual core processor, much less a quad-core.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8250/specs.htm

The motherboard chipset used for the technology of your Dell motherboard, utilizes a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

Let's regress for a moment;

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

If you would take the motherboard out of the computer case, and stand it up in the same direction/position it was in the case, on a table; the motherboard can be viewed as a Map.

The Processor is due North, the Ram Memory slots are due East, the white long PCI slots are due South; and the I/O ports are due West.

The Northbridge chip is always close to the CPU. (Processor)
This is one reason it is named the Northbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip lays down near the white long PCI slots.
Yes. Due South.

The Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

Therefore when you want to upgrade the Processor, not only take a look at what processor socket is used on the motherboard; but also see what the Northbridge chip is.

[There is more ]

HIGH-speed graphics being AGP, and PCI Express,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AGP

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express

a) Using a graphics card inserted into a white long PCI expansion slot, is NOT high-speed graphics.
b) Using Integrated Graphics is NOT high-speed graphics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

The Southbridge chip handles the Slower capabilities of a computer.

1) Anything connected to the IDE bus. (IDE is also referred to as PATA)
2) Anything connected to the SATA bus.
3) Anything connected to the USB bus.
4) Anything connected to the Ethernet bus.
5) Audio (Sound)

An example of general location using this example,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:ASRock_K7VT4A_Pro_Mainboard_Labeled_English.svg

The motherboard example is clocked 90 degrees to the Left, plus a few more degrees (22?); than how it actually is positioned in a computer case.

As you can see with this example, the Northbridge chip has an aluminum finned Heatsink on it. They run hot, and need to be cooled.
The Southbridge chip in this example does not use a Heatsink.
Most newer motherboards do.

The motherboard chipset used on the Dimension 8250 motherboard, is an Intel 850E.

One of the first Intel chipsets to start supporting Intel Pentium 4 processors.
Age, my man. This baby is O-L-D.

Dual core processors weren't even heard of then. They hadn't come out.
Much less quad-core processors.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

Fourth listing down in the Chipset column. 850E

Northbridge is Intel 82850E
Southbridge is Intel ICH2. Part number is Intel 82801BA

-> RDRAM?
Just spotted this.

Should mean you are running an Intel Celeron, or Intel Pentium 4, that use a Socket 423.

Seriously? RDRAM?
That ram memory technology has been left way behind.
Rambus DRAM. (Dynamic Random Access Memory)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RDRAM

Plus the price of Ram Memory is out-freaking-rageous!
For the price of 1GB of RDRAM, you could buy 4GB of Sdram
DDR, DDR2, or DDR3.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8250/specs.htm

Advise get rid of that motherboard.

Processor? Nope. Can't reuse. Why? It's a Socket 423 Intel processor. They use RDRAM ram memory.
Intel made a deal back in the day, that they would manufacturer Intel processors utilizing a Socket 423, and RAMBUS ram memory,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Willamette_.28180.C2.A0nm.29

Scroll the page down until you come to Pentium 4 1.8 in blue, and Socket 423 on the right.

The conclusion, that it is an Intel Pentium 4 1.8GHz, and uses a Socket 423, and not a Socket 478 processor socket, is from the fact the computer uses Rambus ram memory.

RDRAM.

RDRAM -> PC800

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RDRAM

Scroll the page down also, and read under the bold black subheading - Marketing history

1) Intel used RDRAM for a VERY limited time.
Very FEW processors were made.

2) RDRAM costs 3 to 5 times what DDR Sdram costs.

3) Between the no upgrading of the Processor, and the high cost of the ram memory, I would set that baby on a shelf, and show future generations what a dinosaur looks like.

Not trying to knock the computer, or offend you.

Trying to update hardware components, or repairing the computer, IMHO is just like opening a window, and throwing money out.

You can remove the harddrive, and put it in an economical external enclosure. The external enclosure has a USB cable, that you just plug into any available USB port, on a working computer.

This way you can access the personal information off of that harddrive.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1337267&CatId=2779

As for buying RDRAM ram memory? You could add a little coins, and buy an ENTIRE working good, used computer!

(Yes. I see the computer cost around $1353.00 when new.
The Processor cost FIVE HUNDRED, SIXTY TWO dollars, when new!
The Processor is about $20 bucks now)

Not advertising for seller, or website, but for $90 you could buy a good used computer, that will smoke the computer you have now,

I have picked up some curbside, that is better than what you have.
Jus sayin' in case you are thinking about upgrading that computer, or repairing it.

I just need to upgrade the memory on a Dell Precision 530MT.. can't seem to find the exact type of memory it needs.. any ideas?


HELLO Paul

When installing memory modules in the system board sockets and not using the optional memory riser boards, observe the following guidelines:
  • Each memory socket on the system board must be occupied either by a RIMM or a CRIMM.

  • Memory sockets must be upgraded in matched pairs. In other words, two sockets in a pair must contain modules of identical capacity, number of components, and speed. See "System Board Memory Components" to identify pairs of sockets.

  • Mixed pairs of ECC and non-ECC modules all function as non-ECC.

  • Be sure to install a RIMM in socket 1 first (closest to the processor) before installing modules in the other sockets.

  • The system board supports PC600 and PC800 memory modules.

Can I upgrade Celeron -D 2.26Ghz to the same mobo ie. E219882


Intel E219882 motherboard, also know as Intel D850GB?

No.
1) The motherboard has a Socket 423 processor socket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_423

This processor socket has the socket holes, while the processor has the pins. Has 423 socket holes.

The Intel Celeron D 315 uses an LGA775 processor socket.
LGA775 is also known as Socket T. Has 775 pins in the processor socket. The processor used has the socket holes. 775 of them.

Celeron D 315 spec's,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#Celeron_D

2) The Intel D850GB motherboard only supports Single Core processors. Not Dual Core like a Pentium D.
Must be an Intel single core processor, that fits in a Socket 423 processor socket.

Intel only made processors to fit the Socket 423 for about 2 years. Intel had a deal with Rambus, for memory to fit Intel's motherboards, for this period of time. The deal fell out, and Intel moved on.

The Intel D850GB motherboard Only uses RIMM memory modules, ('Stick/s') made by Rambus.
(RIMM. Rambus Inline memory Module)

Highly expensive, overrated ram memory.

Hi I have a mother board EP-4T2A3 and it supports


Hi,

This EP-4T2A3 is unique, that the can only utilize the slightly more expensive RDRAM memory modules. Furthermore, because of the dual memory controllers in the i850 chip-set, all motherboards based off of this chip-set must also have its RDRAM installed in pairs. You can purchase RAMBUS chips of PC600 to PC800 memory modules. You have 4 RIMM slots, and they must be installed in pairs, or you will get speeds of only a single module. The unfortunate part is that the RDRAM modules are a little more pricey. You can find some samples of these HERE.

Good Luck

I want to upgrade my procesor to faster procesor.


Upgrading processor is not likely a practical solution; find out the motherboard manufacturer and contact their site for more information. As to upgrading the motherboard, you'll have to know what kind/size of board your system will require. If you don't have lots of experience, this process is very risky.

Frankly, the cheapest way to upgrade your computer is to buy a used and working product with Windows XP already installed. Go to http://craigslist.com, select your city, and search for a brand name you trust. I've bought DOZENS of used computers very cheap that way (I'm writing this on a $2,200 Dell Latitude D620 I bought fiv months old for $500, who needed the cash!)

I had the same problem with an Intellistation 6868 for years. It just wouldn't load XP but ran fine on Windows 2000 SP4. I tried 3 different XP Installation CD's with no luck. After several attempts at installing XP I bought a clean XP Upgrade from ebay.

It took me 3 goes to install it but eventually I got it in there. If you can get XP to start on the 6868 press F8 and start it in safe mode first then when it's booted fully, shut it down and and then start it clean again. It worked for me. I've been running it for 5 months now and it's fine.

I couldn't get it to work at all on the 6868's onboard IDE so I installed a PCI Raid Card and it boots fine on that.
