Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Processor up grade

I saw the page you referred me to but I didn't see my AA# in the section for the 550E thru 850mhz processors. You're sure my motherboard will support a 800mhz processor? Thanks for your help

    The only thing is that you may have to update the bios first

    You need to have the motherboard running with a cd or a floppy. you boot from cd/floppy with a media you recorded/burned using the bios update that you download from factory here.

    It is not a difficult operation, but if for any case it fails (eg.bad media ) then you risk to fry your MB.

    Bios update procedures may vary. follow the instructions.

Kitchenaid food processor KFP1642MS This model requires the bowl, lid and plunger to be installed before it works. With all items installed this processor has been intermittent and getting worse.

The solution is 90% going to be replace the lid, or replace the bowl or if you are very unlucky replace both. A proper KitchenAid service agent should have both parts on the shelf and will be able to try a new one of either to see where the fault lies. I think over the years I've replaced more lids than I have bowls.

How do I get to the processor on a Compaq EVo N1020v Laptop?

Here is a link to your manual. What you want is addressed on pages 5-28 and 5-29. It will refer you to at least 3 other sections in the manual for accessing the processor.

Blackout in Motherboard, what is the problem

1) Not trying to sound like 'Mr.Negative' here, but even a new Power Supply can be bad. Happens.


I see Electrolytic Capacitors all over that motherboard.
(Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors to be more specific)

Leads me to the following;

If you have tested the three main voltages coming out of the Power Supply, 3.3 Volts (DC), 5 Volts (DC), and 12 Volts (DC), and know the Power Supply is good, take a look at the capacitors on the motherboard.

Look at the one's immediately surrounding the Processor socket.
THESE are used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, for the Processor.

They are NOT the only ones, used in the motherboard voltage regulator circuit, and specifically referring to the one's for the Processor.

There are others not close to the Processor socket, that are also used. (For voltage regulation for the Processor)

What am I 'talking' about?
A Processor has to have a steady, 'clean', supply of Voltage.
It MUST also be kept in the voltage range for the Processor.
Cannot have too much, or too little voltage.

More on the motherboard voltage regulator circuit,

Upon reading the article it will detail how to find all of the capacitors, that deal with voltage regulation for the Processor. You have to follow the circuit traces on the motherboard.

Visual identification of bad Electrolytic Capacitors,

{NOTE* Sometimes the Electrolytic Paste inside the capacitor dries up, and the capacitor shows no outward visual signs of failure ]

Find some bad Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors?
Identifying manufacturer, and codes, for values,

One place I recommend to buy Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors,

[In the fields;

A) Manufacturer: Leave alone
B) Lead Style: Leave alone.
C) Capacitance: Click on the value you need.
D) Tolerance: Leave alone
E) Voltage Rating: Click on the value you need
F) Operating Temperature Range: Leave alone.
G) Termination Style: Radial

H) Dimensions: Leave alone. In the examples in the chart that will come up, you can find the Outer Diameter, and Length you need.

I) Product: Computer Grade Electrolytic Capacitors, but you may want to leave alone. All the capacitors that will be listed in the chart, ARE computer grade, at least.

Now click on -> Apply Filters <- stated under the fields to the Right.
Scroll the page down.

{ Remember these capacitors are rated in MicroFarads. -> uf, not PicoFarads, ->pf. Scroll it down }

Also, hope whoever had the motherboard before you, knew about Anti-Static Precautions. You have been following them, right?

Processor also has fresh, new thermal paste on it? Heatsink is seated tightly, and level on Processor?

The 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable is plugged in?

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My hp pavillion dv7-3079wm shuts off after startup

If you saw that kind of damage, the temperature rose to critical levels in the processor ic causing thermal runner way. Remove the old thermal grease with rubbing alcohol and a paper towel, clean the processor until spotless and the heatsink that mates with it, use high grade thermal grease for computers and a apply a thin coat to both pieces and assemble, make sure any dust or dirt is removed and not blocking vents, compressed air is great for this. If you are very lucky the chip has remained intact, processors are very robust.

Amd duron 850mhz

It's a good processor but old enough. The introduction date was Jan-2001 and the price at introduction $149. For todays programs is a bit old. Why do you want to go for a processor like that?

Can i upgrade my processsor from 850mhz to about 1.2ghz

It entirely on your motherboard. If you still have your manual, it will tell you what the fasted supported processor that will work.

If you open your case, you will be able to see the make and model of you motherboard. The manufacturer will be able to inform you of the fastest possible processor.

I hope this helps.

Up grade for processor

you can only upgrade cpu with the socket you have, which is 478/479, the best you can do the Intel 1.6Mhz M processor 725
if you want a faster CPU, you need to get a new motherboard.

Which frequency of processor for QDI motherboard BrillianX-1S with BIOS 4.51 PG

hey there.

If you are planning to upgrade the processor with the latest one then it is not possible without upgrading your motherboard.

Because as per all the bus and system configuration requirement with ur CPU you must give the recommended bus speed, bus lines, Address lines, Ram supportive slot, and RAM Frequency.

Your motherboard must suuport all those requirement if you are upgrading ur Processor.

You are right that ur motherboard can only work with PIII CPU.

Upgrade ur motherboard with atleast of 845,945G Chipset to support up to core2 Duo Processor in Intel. OR with A8V-VM and above in Asus Motherboard.

(Gimme your acknowledge by rating me)
