Try to see if the mainboard has an AGP slot. You can insert that Crd on the AGP slot and configure it in the bios to use the AGP port of the VGA. and install the driver for it.

If you still use the Built in card, you can download the driver by going to the website of the mainboard, or if your computer is from dell download the correct driver for it by downloading using the service tag at the back of the computer. dell support is here:

CPU upgrade for Compaq SR1220NX Desktop Computer


Hi
The specs for this machine state that it is a motherboard with
"Socket 478 for Intel P4 Williamette and Northwood processors
Supports Intel Pentium 4 processor up to 2.8 GHz
Supports Intel Celeron processor up to 3.06 GHz (Prescott based Celeron with 533MHz FSB)"
In other words, any CPU that is not socket 478 ( a fairly old socket now) will not even fit on the board. You do not mention your current CPU so you need to compare it with the spec above to see if you can improve it. It is an old machine/motherboard, so your money might be better going towards a motherboard or system box upgrade.
Cheers

Dimensions


Dell Support > Dimension 8300 Desktop PC > Main Support Page,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8300/sm/index.htm

Left-click on - Technical Specifications - in the list.

Left-click on - Physical - in the list.

Height: How tall the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.
Width: How wide the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.
Depth: How long the computer tower is. Outside edge to outside edge measurement.

If you meant Specifications instead;


A) Processor:
Intel Celeron, or Pentium 4, that uses a Socket 478 processor socket.
Either a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or an 800MHz FSB.

(Dell also indicates the Intel Pentium 4 Extreme Edition processors are supported. Too expensive for what you get in return)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_478

B) Ram Memory:
DDR Sdram that operates at 333MHz, or 400MegaHertz.
PC2700 and PC3200 respectively.

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 4GigaByte
There are 4 Ram Memory slots. EACH slot has a Maximum Amount of 1GB.

C) Motherboard Chipset:

Northbridge chip: Intel 875P. (Part Number Intel 82875P )

(For Intel the Northbridge chip is the MCH, for this particular Northbridge chipset.
Memory Controller Hub)

The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801EB (Part Number) or Intel 82801ER (P/N)
Commonly known as the Intel ICH5, or Intel ICH5R.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_chipsets

In the chart go down on the right side to - 875P

Looking across, and at the headings, you can see under the heading - Processors, that there are more Intel processors supported, than just the Intel Celeron's, and Pentium 4's.

Core2 Duo, Core2 Quad, Core2 Extreme, Pentium Dual Core, and Xeon.

Problem is they don't use a Socket 478 processor socket.
All except for the Xeon ( 'Zee-On' ) use an LGA 775 processor socket.
Xeon models use a Socket 603, or Socket 604, or LGA 771, processor socket.

It is just processors that the Intel 875P chipset will support.

D) Graphics Expansion Slot:

AGP
Uses AGP 8X graphics cards.

I have dell gx270 tower pc with 2.6gh procesor(800mh).what higher processr of what specification can it support?


Hello
I did some research into your motherboard for that dell and found that it uses the Intel 865G motherboard. Which uses Intel Pentium IV Socket 478 proccessors.
Any Socket 478 Pentium IV processor will work in that board. the best processor I could find for that was the Pentium IV 3.4Ghz but it was $231..
However, I did find the Pentium IV 3.2Ghz for only $15.99. that seems to be the best deal to me. That would be a fair speed increase, an extra 0.6Ghz or 600Mhz.
Here is the link: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?InvtId=P43200478&cm_mmc=GoogleProducts-_-CPUs/Processors-_-Socket478(Pentium4)-_-P43200478&utm_source=GoogleProducts&utm_medium=ShoppingSites&utm_campaign=P43200478

Also if you need to get a new heat sync you can search for "Pentium IV Heatsync" or "Socket 478 Heatsync" in google or a sight like newegg.com
Enjoy!

How do i change the memory bus speed on my dell optiplex 170l? The CPU is an Intel Celeron 2.4GHz. The mother board processor speed is 400MHz and the Bios indicates a memory bus speed of 266MHz and does...


You checked in the right place as far as looking in the BIOS, however, memory and CPU sockets do not necessarily have the same buss speed. My FSB runs at 1066Mhz and my RAM at 800Mhz, it all depends on what type of RAM you buy as to the bus speed. You can up the bus speed on your RAM if you wish to reduce bottle-necking, but I've only done that a few times. In order to adjust anything, you must set the settings to manual. Be careful when you change this stuff around though, voltages must also be adjusted accordingly.

replace it with
any socket 478 motherboard

if nothing change

then the last one
if nothing change
you must replace your processor
