Dell Dimension 4100 Mobo upgrade to a P4 based system

I have a PIII based Dimension 4100 and would like to upgrade the cpu to P4, I realize dell has special power sockets etc... and wondering if I can possibly use a P4 based dell Mobo (e.g. the one used in a Dimension 4300) to swap out mu old intel 815 mobo while keeping the memory (2x 256), power source (I upgrade recently to a 250 W unit), sound card (santa cruz, THX certified) and nvidia video card

    1. fit into the existing case, especially the back panel

    2. accept the peripherals that I currently have in my system, namely: memory, soudcard, videocard, etc...

Well the two would not be compatible cause one is a P3 and the next is a P4 two completely different socket types so it wouldn't work but what u can do is buy a new motherboard if u want to upgrade to a P4...thats the only thing that is recommended from such a devices cause an upgrade wouldn't be possible to do .

I want upgrade my CPU from p4 520 to p4 660(2M L2 cache) on dimension 4700. I want to know if that will work on my pc. Right now i am operating on bios A05,and i want to know if i have to upgrade to bios...

For best results, you should run the Dell System Analyzer on your computer:

Updating the BIOS, while not difficult, is not usually recommended unless it will solve a problem. The reason for that is you must follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer exactly or you could render your computer useless.
If the Dell System Analyzer determines that you can upgrade to a P4 660, then go ahead and replace the P4 520. If the P4 660 doesn't work, then the best approach would be to re-install the P4 520, make sure the computer works, then update the BIOS after carefully reading and understanding all the instructions provided by Dell.

Dell 4100 Dimension Desktop, Default Password

Do you have the software disks that came with the system? If it was given to you and you arent really sure of whats on it (viruses included), its worth reformatting.

If you have the disks, you can put the operating system disk into the computer and have it boot off of that.

Cpu upgrade dell dimension 5100

Hi, according to the Dell website you have a LGA775 socket on your motherboard. Therefore, you can only buy processors that fit into this socket. Here is a list of some offered by Intel that will work: Celeron D 325 2.53 GHz Celeron D 330 2.66 GHz Celeron D 335 2.8 GHz Celeron D 340 2.93 GHz Pentium4 520 2.8 GHz Pentium4 530 3.0 GHz Pentium4 540 3.2GHz Pentium4 550 3.4 GHz Pentium4 560 3.6 GHz Pentium4 570 3.8 GHz The processors that won't work are the ones that are not compatible with this socket. Everytime you look up a cpu it will tell you which socket it is designed for. To buy a cpu you will need to decide: The brand you want. The speed of the cpu that you want. Extras i.e. Hyperthreading, etc. How much you are willing to pay for it. Then you can narrow your search as you stick within your limits. Let me know if you have more questions. Good Luck

according to this ( the dual core is not an option. I'm not sure if that means that Dell doesn't offer an upgrade, or if it's not possible. First, open your tower and look over the Motherboard for the manufacturer and model. Once you have those, google them and look for the specs of what cpu's are supported by that motherboard. If you can and do decide to upgrade, check with the CPU manufacturer to see how strong of a power supply you need for the more powerful CPU. You're might be ok, but you might need to upgrade the PSU (Power supply) with the processor. From your description, I can't tell what motherboard is in your Dell. That will be the limiting factor. Get the motherboard specs and you'll know what you can do.
