Specifications and requirements for building up a pentium 2


A good motherboard with an AGP 8X slot, if you can find one. The board should be ATX rather than micro atx, the full size boards are usually better running. It should take 4gb of ddr, hopefully pc3200.
Add a Northwood CPU, a fast one. A good socket 478 cooler.
DDR3200, this is fairly cheap on Ebay new. A good AGP card, maybe a geforce 3 or 4. A large IDE hard disk. ribbon cables. Maybe a floppy drive. DVD RW DRIVE. P4 PSU....350 WATSS AT LEAST.


LATER P4 478 CHIPS HAD 1MB CACHE RATHER THAN THE NORTHWOOD'S 512K CACHE BUT THEY RAN HOT AND NEEDED VERY GOOD COOLING GENERALLY, THEY ARE BEST AVOIDED IN MY OPINION.

Why my computer keeps re starting, pentium dual core, it occur after i cleaned the hardwares


1. Check whether you have blowed all the dust. If possible use soft brush to remove any hard dust present.
2. Remove memory from the slots and reinset it carefully after cleaning the slot and memory again.
3. Remove the cpu heat sink clean and replace the heat sink compound and then replace back the heatsink on the cpu.

I have a gateway 831gm. it has an Intel (Augsburg) 915G Motherboard and a Pentium 4 630 cpu 800MHz fsb & 2MB L2 cache. i've been looking for a cpu upgrade and saw that the Pentium E5200 Dual Core has...


If both motherboards are LGA775 socket, then the next concern is whether or not the case is capable of having the new motherboard installed into it. Disconnect all power cables to all dv drives or cd drives and hard drives. Disconnect all ribbons from drives to the mother board. If you can get to all of the screws that hold the motherboard into the case, you get away without removing drives. Once you've got the motherboard then you can disconnect the power cable from the motherboard. Remove the memory chips, disconnect the sound cable from the old motherboard. install the memory chips onto the new mobo, Connect the power cable to the new mobo, then install the new mobo into the case. Replace the ribbons from the drives to the mobo, replace the power cables to the drives and reinstall the sound cable to the cd or dv drive. You should be done now.

How to install CPU- Intel Pentium Dual Core E5200 into a asus barebone system P4-P5N9300pc please?


This particular CPU is not on the list of processors supported by this board. See "CPU Support List" tab:

ASUS P4-P5N9300 Spec

How to install Socket LGA 775 CPUs:

Lift up the cpu slot load plate (which covers the pins and also locks the cpu in place) and install the processor slowly, vertically and carefully into the socket without bending any of the tiny pins in the motherboard socket. Lock the load plate.

The advent of the LGA 775 form factor moved the tiny pins from the CPU to the motherboard socket. Great for Intel, not so great for motherboard manufacturers. Now bent pins are the responsibility of the board makers. Customers with bent pin problems are no longer contacting Intel.

P4VXASD-R VIA Apollo P4X266-new 1G DDR gets 3 beeps


Well you said you used 256+128 and thats lower than 1gb. So try sticking in one of the stick and run it, see how it is. Then try the other, if both are working fine by themself then try cleaning your board with a nonscrathing cloth (or q-tip).

Lastly, just double check if your motherboard runs that kingston type, the pc2100.

As for your memory goes, os 2k can run up to 4gb of ram.

Cpu installation


Hi,
In most P4 motherboards there is no setup necessary to change from a Celeron to a Pentium CPU. Just remove your Celeron chip and insert your Pentium chip. All settings should be automatically configured by your mb bios and operating system. This is assuming that your bios setup is set to auto settings for your CPU.
Good luck!
Regards,
Graemevm

K8S-LA mobo heat sink fell off.


That is the 'Northbridge' chip that provides the I/O interfacing for the main chip. The heat sink is normally held on with glue as you surmised, and should be re-done with a thermal conductive glue. The glue (a silver filled epoxy) is available from MCM electronics or from Mouser. Be sure to thoroughly clean the chip and heat sink before re-gluing.

Problem with upgrading processor


Sounds like the processor you're trying to upgrade to isn't the same frequency. The processor, motherboard, and memory have a matched frequency. For example; a motherboard with a frequency of say PC4200 will only accept a processor and memory of a PC4200 frequency. If you try to use PC5300 memory it basically won't do anything, blank screen, or maybe a beep. The same if you tried to use a processor with PC5300 on the PC4200 board. The best way to find the frequency rating is to look on the memory. They class the memory by frequency, but rarely ever list the frequency for the board or processor. Research the new processor to find out the memory class and then see if it matches the memory in your machine. If it doesn't then the processor won't work. If it does, then new processor may not be compatible, and that means more research.

Are all P4 478pin cpu's compatible with the P4mm2 motherboard?


Just in case your pins are only bent you can straighten them out as long as you are careful. Take a mechanical pencil without lead (.5 works ok but .7 may be easier to use) and ground it by touching it to your power supply. Then work the CPU pin slowly into the pencil and slowly bend the pin up. If you?re patient and careful you can usually straighten out any pins that have been bent. You didn?t stat which version motherboard you had. On the P4VMM2 (V1.3) motherboard the manual states that the motherboard will automatically determine the CPU clock and system buss frequency and makes the appropriate changes. The manuals only references a front-side buss limitation of 400 MHz, however, a FAQ from the manufactures support site says the V1.x motherboard?s CPU is limited as follows: - Pentium 4 400Mhz FSB (256K/512K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6GHz - Celeron 400Mhz FSB (128K L2 cache) CPU ? 2.6GHz I would stick with the FAQ recommendations if you have to purchase a new processor, that or contact the support line to verify. Make sure you point out the FAQ on their site since they will probably just refer you to the manuals specs.

Upgrade from 600 MHz to 1 GhZ


According to this review, you can upgrade as far as a 2 GHz P4-M at least; http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1895,669029,00.asp Other than that, i have been unable to find the details of your motherboard - if you can post the make and model (should be printed on it somewhere) then I would hope to find a more complete list of compatible and incompatible processors. Gateway themselves no longer offer online info or support for this model, but the motherboard details should enable me to find out what you need to know. Waiting for your post :)
