I just bought your AMD Athlon ll #x2 255 to replace replace my old one. I see in the instructions that I have a socket 754 and the new one is different. I/m trying to upgrade my computer. i also got y

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Roger Gross.

Yes your new AMD Athlon 2 X2 255 processor is made to fit both AM2+ or AM3 sockets.

Since your current socket is 754, you will need a new mainboard and DDR3 RAM to go with your new processor.

ASUS make very good mainboards. The ASUS M4A88TD-M EVO/USB3 mainboard is a good companion for your new processor. Install DDR3 1333MHz CL9 RAM from either Kingston or Corsair. 2X2GB modules should do nicely.

Feel free to contact me should you require additional assistance.

Take care!

Will windows xp supported in amd sempron 145?

No it should not.

However your post does have one confusing detail - XP when installed does not reside on the motherboard but on a Hard Disk Drive. Parts of it will be loaded into memory when you boot up the PC.

If you mean that you are also installing a new Gigabyte MB under an existing installation of XP, you will probably still need the XP system disk for a reinstall of XP as it may not recognise the new MB.

If you are newly installing XP in an existing PC with the specs you mention, it should be ideal. It is best to have enough memory on board, at least 1 Gb.

It takes a full 7 minutes for the computer to boot up. there's 2 gigs of DDR2 800 Ram and a AMD Athlon x3 435 processor on a biostar ta785GE 128m motherboard. Its been like this since I got it out of the...

Take a look at my published guides entitled:

The more processes that your computer has to execute on start-up the longer it is going to take to fully boot up.
Unistall any applications that you do not need.
Keep that mainboard cool, install fans in your chassis.

Take care!

I need to run Autocad 2010 on my computer but it won't even instal because I have an AMD 3000+ 2Ghz processor. Is it possible to upgrade the processor without buying a whole new computer?

Autocad 2010 needs SSE2 to run.
The only Semprons which didn't have SSE2 are those for socket A, so I assume you're running a socket A mainboard. I checked and there are no socket A processors that support SSE2 unfortunately.

I think that you could replace your mainboard and the cpu cheaply witha a socket 754 mainboard (which supports SSE2 CPUs and should run with your old ram).

However I advise to upgrade to newer system with AM2 socket or so - they aren't expensive and the increase in performance in power-hungry applications such as AutoCad will be noticeable.
