I need to find a replacement motherboard for a Dell Dimension XPS M233S; it contains a 430vx chipset; where do I start? I tried Interloper.com but they didn't have any boards that were specificlaly for a...


This is an era 1997 system and really is an antique. If you are trying to save it to get your info off a disk drive, just install the disk on a new system.

If you are restoring old computers for a hobby, then try to buy a M233S from Craigslist or ebay. although I had no luck there. Dell has used an ATX-style motherboard, so the processor and its huge heatsink are right next to the cooling fan and not near the path of the expansion slots.

I assume you have seen this info:

Hi, I have problem with my ACER P4, when the power botton is pressed, it starts and the power dies after 5 seconds


maybe 2 reasons
  1. virus attack
  2. hardware failure
virus attack - best bet use rescue disk from nt virus company like kaspersky rescue disk, bitdefender rescue disk n etc hardware failure - maybe cause by heat...check your coller system like cpu fan
it's worth to try :)

I need the restore cd for dell dimension 4600


if your restore partition is still intact, try holding down Crtl+F11 on startup.

This will access the hidden restore partiton.

Alas, if you just replaced the hard drive or reformatted it. You will need the restore disk or the version of windows that is on the COA sticker with the valid windows key.

Transfer data from Dinension hard drive to XPS hard drive


If you have no experience with this, it might be easier to just copy the data from your Dimension to a external usb harddisk and then to the XPS. But i will try to explain it.

I've looked a bit around: your XPS hard drive is a SATA drive, while your the drive in your Dimension is probably a PATA-drive (just connection types. Look at the hard drives and compare them with this image to see which types they are.)
As far as I know the XPS 530 has a Foxconn G33M-S motherboard, which contains one ATA (PATA) connector. So you should be able to just connect the hard drive from your Dimension into the XPS.
To make it work properly, you should set the drive from the Dimension to slave. This can be done by setting the jumpers next to the cable connector. The jumper setting depends on your hard drive model. Usually the possible settings are shown on the hard drive.
If you feel uncomfortable with this whole thing, you could ask someone, who has some experience and who you trust to do it for you, or just use an external usb hard disk

Make sure the computers are off and disconnected from the power outlet, when you open the case...
Dell offers a user manual for your Dimension and XPS. Maybe it's of some help by removing and placing the various parts...
Please tell me how it worked out.
As you probably understand, I can't take any responsibiity for damage to your system...
If you have any problems, just post them here!
