    hi, thank you SOOOO much. Label on the back definitely says 3033 model E2020, have managed to work out where the pins go, I have managed to get the monitor to work now, but not properly, It is a graphics agp card that came with the computer already installed, I have removed it and reattached it which made the monitor work, but it has a message saying the device is not working properly, I have tried reinstalling the drivers but that doesn't do anything, the system won't play any of the kids games because I can't alter any of the display settings, do you think the card is damaged?

OK, you say you found the power pins and reattached it, there should be a number of other pins in that area, if you look closely there should be markings around the pins on the board itself, they are abbreviated but should be identifiable to reattach the other pins. Also if you have any problems let me know what motherboard is in your unit, I think it is an MSI, also are you sure its a 3033 and not a 3303 model. As to your monitor, are you using a add on video card or the built in device?

    Awesome, I am pleased to hear you resolved one issue. Before you go
    out to replace your graphics card(which you can do cheaply with a
    second hand card) I suggest you check your BIOS configuration. If you
    press F2 as your system is starting up but before your operating
    system starts to load, you will be taken in to the BIOS configuration
    menu. Check for Video settings in here, and select agp, if it has no
    luck let me know what options you have there

UPGRADING FROM PENTIUM 3 PROCESSOR TO PENTIUM 4 PROCESSOR


To upgrade from a Pentium 3 to a Pentium 4 processor, you would have to replace the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor has more pins on it than the Pentium 3 and would not sit in a Pentium 3 motherboard.

Motherboard upgrade for Dell GX150


If the motherboard you have installed accepts a socket 370 processor and you replaced the board, it would also have to be a socket 370 unless you were planning on upgrading the processor also. If you wanted to keep your existing computer case and other hardware, you might want to look for an inexpensive pentium 4 motherbard and processor to replace it instead of the pentium 3 you now have. If you get a new board that uses the same memory that you now have installed it would be a relatively inexpensive upgrade.

Processor upgrade


Hi ryonsdad,

I checked out the Latitude D610 laptop, and you'll be glad to know that you have the following processor upgrade options:

1.) Pentium M 780 Processor - 2.26 GHz, 2MB, 780, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (fastest upgrade)
2.) Pentium M 770 Processor - 2.13 GHz, 2MB, 770, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
3.) Pentium M 760 Processor - 2.0 GHz, 2MB, 760, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
4.) Pentium M 750 Processor - 1.86 GHz, 2MB, 750, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB
5.) Pentium M 740 Processor - 1.73 GHz, 2MB, 740, Pentium-M Dothan, 533FSB (slowest upgrade)

You can buy these processors from Dell Spareparts or otherwise from a 3rd party store.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

To upgrade from pentium 3 to P4 you have to change alot of the hardware.

You need a NEW P4 Socket mPGA 475 Motherboard.
