Yeah!! you can do an upgrade as long you know the specifications of your system unit. its ok..it seems that your'e good to go improve the performance ( just don't exceed it to 1GB ot it will crash your motherboard)

Goodluck!!! Have Fun!!

Installing new cpu on a emachine


According to the specs I have Serena, the eMachines eTower 633i Desktop PC, uses a TriGem Cognac motherboard.

[TriGem is the manufacturer, Cognac is the model.
Note it is Not the TriGem Cognac+ ]

http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/motherboards_d/Trigem/Cognac/

Specifications. (You can click on the photo to enlarge)

PDF motherboard manual,

http://www.elhvb.com/mboards/TriGem/manuals/index.html

Click on - Cognac - in the left side of the list.

Going back to the Motherboards.org page;
(Nothing like upside down photo information, and the motherboard is turned 90 degrees to the Right, to how it actually sits in your computer case )

The processor socket is a Socket 370,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_370

Used for Intel Pentium III processors, and intel 'Celey' processors.

(Excuse me......Celeron.
An Intel Pentium III processor has TWICE the L2 cache, that a comparable Intel Celeron has.
The cache for a Processor is a small memory area for the Processor.

It is the First memory the Processor accesses.
The Ram Memory is second, and the Harddrive is third.
More cache for a Processor makes it more faster )

The motherboard chipset is an Intel 810.

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, is an Intel 82810.
The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801AA, or an Intel 82801AB.
(Intel ICH, or Intel ICH0 )

Looking at the chart, and reading across, you can see what the Intel 810 motherboard chipset supports;

1) Processors: Intel Celeron, or Intel Pentium II, or Intel Pentium III.

2) Processor Front Side Bus: (FSB) 66MegaHertz, or 100MHz.

3) SDR Sdram ram memory at 100Megahertz.

[Single Data Rate Sdram is often just referred to as Sdram.

Erroneous.
Double Data Rate Sdram is also Sdram (DDR Sdram)
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory
So is DDR2 Sdram, and DDR3 Sdram ]

Also referred to as PC100.

So when looking for a CPU you look for;

1) Fits in a Socket 370 processor socket.
Yep. The best is going to be an Intel Pentium III.

2) Has a FSB of 100MHz.

Hmmm,............

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_III_microprocessors#.22Coppermine.22_.28180_nm.29

Scroll down.

Pentium III 1100.

Maximum frequency rate ('Speed') is 1.1GHz (1100MHz)
Front Side Bus = 100MHz
Uses a Socket 370 processor socket.
Part Number = RB80526PY005256
sSpec Number = SL5QW

In the top header -

You can click on the photo to enlarge.
256MegaByte of L2 cache. (256MB)

A comparable Celeron would have 128MB of L2 cache.

http://www.impactcomputers.com/sl5qw.html

[ Don't forget to follow Anti-Static Precautions.
Clean the bottom of the Heatsink THOROUGHLY, and the top of the Processor if it needs it. (I always do anyway)

PROPERLY apply fresh, new Thermal Paste.

I have acer travelmate 2355nxc with 40 gb hdd. want to know how to increase its speed and capacity.


Hi, how are you?

To upgrade your laptop, you will have to verify the capacity for upgrade of your laptop.

The Acer Travelmate comes with:

  • Intel Celeron-M 360 Processor 1.4GHz
  • 256MB DDR SDRAM -
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD/CD-RW Combo Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs
  • 15" XGA TFT Screen
  • Intel 852GM 64MB shared graphics
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

  • Based on this information, you can upgrade your memory depending on what type of memory your motherboard supports and how many empty slots for memory does your laptop have.

    The hard drive can be upgraded also depending on which hard drives does the BIOS will recognize.

    I will suggest to contact ACER and ask for the options and upgrades capacity.

    God Bless You!!!

    Hope it helps.

    I need to know how much ram my motherboard will be able to run without burning up? I have an Emachines t1090 w/ Windows XP, 900MHz Intel Celeron Processor, 128MB SDRAM, CD-ROM 48x Max. CD-Drive, 20GB Hard...


    The max for your system is 512MB. You have two memory slots and one has a 128MB chip so if you want 512MB, you need two 256MB chips and throw away the 128MB.
    At Newegg, a 256MB chip is $42+ shipping of $1. I'd consider getting a new computer instead.
    I don't think memory upgrade will tax your system cooling.

    Can I upgrade Celeron -D 2.26Ghz to the same mobo ie. E219882


    Intel E219882 motherboard, also know as Intel D850GB?

    No.
    1) The motherboard has a Socket 423 processor socket.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_423

    This processor socket has the socket holes, while the processor has the pins. Has 423 socket holes.

    The Intel Celeron D 315 uses an LGA775 processor socket.
    LGA775 is also known as Socket T. Has 775 pins in the processor socket. The processor used has the socket holes. 775 of them.

    Celeron D 315 spec's,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Celeron_microprocessors#Celeron_D

    2) The Intel D850GB motherboard only supports Single Core processors. Not Dual Core like a Pentium D.
    Must be an Intel single core processor, that fits in a Socket 423 processor socket.

    Intel only made processors to fit the Socket 423 for about 2 years. Intel had a deal with Rambus, for memory to fit Intel's motherboards, for this period of time. The deal fell out, and Intel moved on.

    The Intel D850GB motherboard Only uses RIMM memory modules, ('Stick/s') made by Rambus.
    (RIMM. Rambus Inline memory Module)

    Highly expensive, overrated ram memory.

    Intel D850GB motherboard specifications,

    http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d850gb/sb/cs-013247.htm

    On this page go down to -
    Product Specifications [PDF]
    in blue, and left-click on it.

    After you click it may take a few seconds for the PDF file to show.

    Sorry to be a bummer, but wanted to give you in-depth info about your motherboard.
    Have any additional questions, please state so in a Comment.

    851 MHz Celeron Processor


    *********** board will support a max of 1GB of RAM. Your processor is an Intel at 1.8 GHz. The preceding is only true if your PC is the Emachines T1840 as you chose in the category listing of your post. Again if that is true, you can achieve the max RAM by installing a 512MB stick in each of the two memory slots.
    Good luck.

    PS: Gdlkn84as528 is correct in assuming that a less than 1.3GHz Intel processor would be a P3 or equivalent processor. So which is it, it can't be both ways?

    I have an eMachine T2240 with an Intel Celeron processor 2.20 GHz & 384 MB of RAM.  The only real complaint I have is that this machine runs slow - it is rather aged - and I tend to bump up against my...


    Memory: Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. You may purchase here.
    This will give you the biggest speed increase.

    CPU: I could not find specs for which cpus this motherboard supports. However, I had one of these same machines and succesffuly swapped out the celeron processor for a pentium 4 processor, 2.53 GHz. You should be safe finding a used processor on ebay that's a Pentium 4 2.2 GHz and it should work for you.

    Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
