    well i realize justbecause theyre both p3"s and that doesnt meanit will work but i thought a upgraded bios just might do the trick actually ive never had a problem with a p3 socket 1 not working anyway anyone knows of a bios revision that might work id appreciate you letting me know and i thank you for your replies

    Were you able to verify that your computer can handle the upgrade prior to installing it? You might be able to find a download for "flashing" your bios (upgrading it). I'm not sure if Gateway has them on their site like Dell does though.

I need a motherboard manual for a Dell Precision 420 motherboard (Dell p/n 9410W). The system currently has dual slot 1 P3 933 MHz processors. In particular, I would like to know if I can put faster...


Given that you have "Slot 1" sockets, you're already using "fast" 933Mhz CPUs -- you could possibly find a pair of 1000Mhz CPUs, or a pair of "slotket" adapters (Slot 1 on one edge, Socket 370 on one side) and connect a 1100 Mhz Socket 370 CPU to each slotket adapter.

That's a lot of money & work (if you can find the parts) to get a small "boost" from 933 Mhz to 1000 Mhz or to 1100 Mhz.

You might be better-off to add more RAM to your computer, or to buy a brand-new "twice-as-fast" computer.

Can I upgrade a dell 900mhz p3 processor


Not really [ only possible might be to a faster P3 cpu]. Those motherboards are so old it would be cheaper to just buy a new system as Dell cases & power supplies, etc for that old a computer are all proprietary and would take major modification to upgrade to a new motherboard, ram, cpu and such. Hope this helps.

My dasktop doesn't completely load windows xp setup


hi, did you run the upgrade adviser, before running xp set up? this will tell you any upgrades or possible problems you may have. it is probably a hardware compatibility, as the aging p3 systems would have. if you can, go back with the older operating system, then run upgrade adviser, you may be able to correct he issue, i still have a pentium 2 450,that i put xp on years ago-it runs great for a p2-so it is not impossible to do.also did you do a quick or full format in the fat or ntfs, do full, and try the fat format for that p3. hope this helps you, good luck! need more help post again.

CPU installation


jamie,

on the mobo there should be a little table next to a set of jumpers that tells u what jumpers to set for the multipliers. These days this is done in the bios but if your board is old (P3 which it is) there should be some white set of jumpers about 3 in a row near the cpu with a little table printed next to it. You should set it up so the multipliers adds up to 933...my guess is you should double what you have now to get it to 900 which is closest u are going to get

good luck

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 :)
