Question about Intel (RK80532PG0881M) Pentium 4, 3 GHz Processor

1 Answer

Upgrade ram and maybe processor!

I have a msi 915glm-v mother board micro atx
pentium 4 cpu 2.66 ghz from control panel, system info
think it is a intel i 915G(ddr1) found this on a website.

Wanted to upgrade from 512 ddr pc3200 400mhz ram to a gig, but thought that if it was painless I could upgrade the processor also.

I did not want to have to loose info or reload info on the computer. This is why I did not want to change the motherboard. In addittion did not want to drop lots of money into the pc. Wife doesn't want to replace my desktop, doesnt't want to spend the money. Her laptop works fine, but I like my large sound system and 19" monitor. The system will not play a cd and let me do several other things at the same time. Wired ethernet connection windows xp pro. Do not want to upgrade op system either, very happy with it.
Do you have to change things to upgrade processor, or is it painless?

Please respond to Danbudy@yahoo.com

Thanks, Dan.

Hey, da,

I would double the RAM first with the same kind, then watch both PC and wife :), what happens. If they both smile, go for the processor but don't jump too high on the MoBo. Check the range on the board for highest speed clock before you buy a processor.

You shouldn't have to reinstall your OS, but back up your important files just in case.

Good luck Dan.

If new processor supports your old motherboard then you will upgrade system with your old motherboard.

If its not supported to new mother board then you have to buy new motherboard to upgrade your system.

Thanks.

UpGrade


you could only upgrade the processor and RAM in this condition i.e.

you can only change your an upgraded p-III processor like 1.0 GHz, 1.1 GHz or 1.3GHz and
upgrade the RAM by changing to 256 in each slot.

that is all what u can do with ur pc

From what you posted, your processor uses socket 478. You could pop it into any of these micro atx boards

Pentium 4 comptability with SD Ram


If you know what mother board you have you could check what RAM it can use.

All RAM is installed in the same way, but different types of RAM are keyed differently. That basically means that one type of RAM (for example SD RAM) will simply not fit into another type of RAM slot (for example a DDR RAM slot).

To install ram on a PC
Please note - do NOT touch the connector side of the RAM, handle it only by holding the side or top edge
1. check that you have the right type of RAM. do this by lining up the RAM above the RAM slot and making sure that the RAM is the same length as the RAM slot AND ALSO that the RAM's key (the little hole or notch in the RAM) lines up with the key in the RAM slot. Note there might be more than one key
2. open both clips of the RAM slot by pushing them down and out from the center of the RAM slot
3. gently insert the RAM into the RAM slot
4. check again that the RAM and the RAM slot's key's line up, if they do, firmly press down on the RAM on both corners until both clips automatically click shut on the RAM

That's it! :-)

Processor upgrade


Need to look at the motherboard specs along with the processor "Socket". It will usually be a 754 or 939 depending on what your motherboard says. I wouldn't try too fast and set yourself up for disappointment. I would upgrade the RAM before the processor.
