Question about Acer Aspire 2100 (91.AB675.D02) PC Desktop

1 Answer

CPU Upgrade Hello. I would like to know if I can upgrade my acer aspire 2100 desktop cpu. It is an amd k6-2 300mhz, And I would like to put in a amd k6-2 550mhz. Will the system board handle it? Is the board limited to a 66mhz bus speed? Also, where can I find out the board specs? Is this board a socket 7? And my Final question is How do I enter the bios? I can't seem to find the right key combination on startup. Thank You!

    Thank You For Your Help SirHanz. I have been to that web page before. I was hoping somebody has done this in the past. I see it lists those processors, But I took it as those were the cpu's that came as options in this package. I thought it looked like a socket 7. I tried to access the bios with the f2 key and it just keeps booting up to windows. I will keep trying though. Thank You Again For Your Time, You were Helpful!

OK as far as I know and can figure out, it will not support that processor. It has a max of 366mhz processor, you can find the system specs here http://www.acersupport.com/desktop/aspire/html/as21xx_specs.html

also it should be a socket 7, and you should just have to press F2, that is above your w-e-3 keys, while the system is starting up, before windows trys to load. Plus you should be able to find your board specs here

Want faster processor for acer x1300 it base unit


Here are the spec on your pc if the information you gave me is correct. You can only upgrade the cpu to the socket you have. I think you would be better off adding more RAM and a better video card that isn't onboard. Processor / Chipset

  • Number of Cores Dual-Core
  • 64-bit Computing Yes

I have an acer aspire ast180-340b, I upgraded the cpu from Sempron to AMD Athlon 64 x2 3800+ but the computer keep saying I need to clear cmos. How do I clear cmos on this computer ?


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya Van Pham.

I have published a guide that deals with this very topic, it is entitled How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
You also may want to see the following guide entitled, How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!

Basically you will need to remove the CMOS battery found on the mainboard for a few seconds and then reinsert it again.

Take care!

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

I am wanting to upgrade my processor from an AMD Athlon 64x2 2.0Ghz to an AM2 3.0ghz. I've upgraded the the ram to 3gb and the video card to a 8800 gts 320mb and I can upgrade the power supply to 550w if...


The 8800 GTS is a big card so make sure you have the room to install, It takes the space of two slots. Reviews say it runs hot so provide adequate ventilation. It's minimum power supply requirement is 400w. I don't know what you are planning to do with this card but, if your a gamer, you'll want to have at least 400w. Hope this helps.

My acer aspire M5100 getting into shudown mode


Check the temperature of the CPU in Bios. It is probably higher than the Safe temperature and it gets into shut down mode to protect itself.
Open it, detach the cooler from the CPU and clean it, detach the CPU from the socket, clean the paste from the top, put a new one, clean the socket and put everything back. It should work perfectly.
If you need further assistance, just leave a comment. Cheers

No problem want to upgrade


There are lots of possibilities Rob. Endless, I would say. Looking at your specs you could spend up to $400 or $500 depending on what you want.

RAM - $50 to max out @ 4GB
Graphics - $100 to $200 for a good PCI-Express card w/512MB
Sound - $50 to $100 for a good 7.1 card
CPU - $100 for a Pentium Dual Core 2.7GHz with 800MHz FSB

These prices are from www.tigerdirect.com which would be a good place to start.

One thing to consider is the price of a new computer compared with an upgrade. Sometimes you are better off just getting a new one. Again, it depends on what you want...and can afford.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.
