6850 Motherboard Stuck in chasis...

I ordered a new motherboard so that I could have faster processors, but cannot get the motherboard out of the chasis. I believe that I must just slide the motherboard forward until the metal teeth throughtout the MB release the MB from it's grip. But I am not sure...

There is a spring-loaded retaining pin with a blue cap in the center of the motherboard. Pull up on the cap and the motherboard can be slid forward in the case for easy removal.

If there are no screws holding the motherboard to the case, remove the case cover over the bottom of the motherboard and look at the supports for the motherboard to see how the board is removed from the case. BPCS

I have a sony vaio vgn-nr430e laptop, and was wondering if the motherboard processor could be upgraded? Also can a video card be installed.


Yes you should be able to upgrade the processor on the laptop for a faster one. The socket type of the processor is socket PPGA47. This code is what you type for when looking for a faster processor. The installed processor should be Intel Pentium T2390 / 1.86 GH.

As for the graphics card then i'm sorry but the graphics chip is part of the motherboard and cannot be upgraded.

I had a Asus k8v-mx motherboard which is not producing any output from last week. As per an engineer motherboard should be replaced. But the problem is the same model is not available nowadays in my place....

This is an opportunity to upgrade to a later and faster motherboard.
Desktop computer cases have standard mountings for motherboards, and any motherboard you choose can be mounted in your case.
I suggest you do a little research on the Internet for motherboards, one of my favourite motherboards is from Gigabyte,
If your components are in good order and you don't need to upgrade any components then upgrade otherwise go for a whole new computer.
Be careful you may need a higher wattage power supply for the new motherboard.

Processor cores?????

Yes it does matter which processor, per motherboard. This board is compatible with AMD cpu's (Central Processing Units). I recommend getting a Athlon XP 3200+ processor, although you can get faster or slower AMD processors based on how much money you want to fork out. This motherboard uses a VIA KT600 chipset, for your information.

I want to put a faster processor on my computer How fast can I go

Hello Robrez,

To answer your question, THE fastest (supported for your Motherboard) is the
Intel P4 3.06 (RK80532PE083512) from Northwood.

On P4's it matters what speed your ram is, so remember to check your ram settings after fitting.

You may see other cpu's that are faster but DONT bother... they are not supported for your board and you have a good chance that errors will happen if you fit them.

Hope this help.

How is your cpu cooler? Sounds like it could be a heat issue. How long before it freezes? Will it actually boot through to the operating system or freeze on start up? If it runs for a while then freezes it sure could be overheating.
