Dell dimension maximum cpu upgrade


This desktop has a motherboard in it that has an intel LGA 775 processor socket in it. From the spec's I found the cpu that ships with the system should be able to scale up to 3.5 Ghz. But you should be able to replace it with any Pentium 4 that fits into an LGA 775 socket.

Dell dimension maximum cpu upgrade


http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/index.html

You will need to type motherboard name ID and the cpu ID


Significance


Upgrading to more modern operating systems depends on the type of processor in the computer.

One of the main differences between the two systems is that a 32-bit operation requires either a 32-bit or 64-bit processor, while a 64-bit version must have at least a 64-bit processor.


Identification


The operating system will register different on each computer that is running the platform. When a user clicks on the Start button, they can go to the Control Panel, followed by the System and Maintenance tab and click on System.

This will show whether the computer is running a 32-bit or 64-bit operating system


Hope this helps.

When i start up my dimension 3100 dell desktop instead of a green light i get a flashing amber light. people say it is the power supply but the light wouldnt even come on if it was. can you please help me?


No, the light WOULD come on if it was a Power Supply problem.

1) If ALL of the LED lights on your computer were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor uses from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

Dell Dimension 3100 desktop computer?
An Intel Pentium 4.

Intel Pentium 4 model 640.
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 3.2GigaHertz. (3.2GHz)
Fits in a Socket 775 processor socket. (Also know as Socket T)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_2M_.2890.C2.A0nm.29

Can use up to 84 Watts.


You have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

I would like to change my processor can i change a pentium 4 processor to a intel core processor on a dell owg233 mother board??


You need to go to the Dell Support web site and look at CPU upgrades for compatible CPUs. Unlike generic kit motherboards, Dell designs their systems for specific processors. Your options may be very limited.

Dell computers are proprietary. All upgrades are from Dell. At one time they offered an upgrade plan. Go to http://support.dell.com and check upgrades for your system.
