Acer Veriton M464 E4700 2.6Mhz cpu upgrade on MCP730 Mobo

Hi, I have an Acer Veriton M464 E4700 2.6Mhz on an Acer MCP730 Mobo, and I'm doing my homework to see about upgrading the CPU when the warrant runs out in 6 months. I've contacted Acer, but once again they keep trying to take money from me by selling me information.

The MCP730 is their own motherboard, and even though it is a Socket775, i'm sure that some cpus are not compatible. Any pointers gratefully received.Thanks in advance.

    Hi, thanks for writing, but not quite what I have in mind. The main reason, hence me putting that it is an Acer MCP730 Mobo, is that is an Acer original board, therefore the specs aren't widly available.

    Yes, I could do a new Mobo, processors and ram, but with OS, I might as well buy a new pc. So not worth it, especially when with the right info from Acer i could switch processor and cooler. So I'll keep trying.

    PS newegg didn't help with any of the above. Cheers.

Go to www.newegg.com and whatever you want to upgrade click on that item and match it up with your current board (by looking at the specifications and matching them). I suggest to buy a new mobo and all new processors and ram. You can use your old case, hard drive and all that good stuff that is removable.

DVI output problems with Acer Veriton M464


If you are comfortable with opening the case, you can try this: Unplug the power supply, make sure are constantly grounded (touching metal)remove add-in video card. Locate the "Clear CMOS" jumper (usually 3 pins in a row with two shorted via a plastic jumper). Remove the jumper and short the other 2 pins (if originally pins 1-2 with 3 open, short 2-3 with 1 open) for a few seconds. Then replace on original pins. Plug monitor into motherboard video port and power on. If it works, you can leave as is or try to re-install your video card following the same precautions when opening the case and probably changing BIOS settings to utilize the add-on card.
