Motherboard not powering up

Hi
i have an intel motherboard that supports a pentium d processor.
it does not power up using the convectional jumpers from a tower case .
it uses a specific lug which i assume will have inpits for the reset button, power button, hdd light, etc.

how do i go about switching the board on.

Will this set up keep my graphics card and processor cool enough? Will this fan be powerful enough to cool this computer setup, graphics card, and processor? I have the The Nvidia Quadro FX 3500 Graphics...


You're doing good Ben, except you didn't post what I need to know.

Intel Pentium D what?

I need the model number.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_D_microprocessors

Same for that Xeon,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#.22Conroe.22_.2865_nm.29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#.22Wolfdale.22_.2845_nm.29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Xeon_microprocessors#.22Yorkfield-6M.22_.2845_nm.29

Since the Intel Pentium D uses an LGA 775 processor socket, I just picked out a few Core examples for Xeon's, that do too.
I didn't link them all.

Also I notice that they start with a 1066MegaHertz Front Side Bus.
(1066MHz FSB)
Plus go up to a 1333MHz FSB.

The Intel Pentium D's listed use an 800MHz FSB.
(Unless you're talking about Extreme Editions. They use 1066MHz)

So do I guess your motherboard has an LGA 775 processor socket, and can support processors with Up To a 1066MHz, or 1333MHz FSB?

Just curious.

When I get the exact model number, I can show you precise Thermal Design Point; for each processor. (TDP)
(On Intel Support)

Then it can be determined if a processor fan for a Pentium D, can be used on that Intel Xeon you have.

Off hand looking at both links I gave, I would say yes.

The TDP range for the Intel Pentium D's, ranges from 90 to 130.
The maximum TDP I saw for an Intel Xeon, was 135.

As for the mini-fan on that Nvidia graphics card, if you feel it isn't enough; then suggest buy a better one.

Dc5100 processor upgrade


NO!

Two Netburst based Processor cores on the SAME chipset?

Get outta' here!

When did they come up with that?





OH, I'M JUS KIDDIN'!

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12145_na/12145_na.HTML

The HP Compaq dc5100 Desktop PC uses an Intel 915GV motherboard chipset.

Since we know that the Northbridge chip, of the motherboard chipset; handles the Faster capabilities of a computer;
i.e., Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics; let's look at the Intel 915GV chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4.2FPentium_D.2FPentium_EE_chipsets

No sir/ma'am.
The Intel 915GV motherboard chipset only handles Single Core processors;
Intel Pentium 4,
and,
Intel Celeron,
and,
Intel Celeron D.
(With a 533MegaHertz Front Side Bus, or an 800MHz FSB)

The Celeron D is NOT a dual core processor,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Celeron#Prescott-256

"The D suffix actually has no official designation, and does not indicate that these models are dual-core. It is used simply to distinguish this line of Celeron from the previous, lower performing Northwood and Willamette series, and also from the mobile series, the Celeron M (which also uses 3xx model numbers) Unlike the Pentium D, the Celeron D is Not a dual core processor."

Yeah, I know. I'm just a 'Ray of Sunshine'.

You know you can pick up a motherboard pretty cheap nowadays, that WILL support the lowly Pentium D, for not much money.

Problem is you will need to replace Ram Memory also.

By the time you get a motherboard chipset that supports dual core Processors (CPU), you are going to be using DDR2 Sdram ram memory, instead of the DDR Sdram ram memory you are using now.

OK, Motherboard, CPU, and Ram Memory.

Oh, the Power Supply. Won't do either.
240 Watt unit, or 300 Watt unit?

Sure.............OK.

Back in the day those Power Supply's were made, Power Supply manufacturer's were 'fudging' the actual maximum rated Wattage.

True Wattage was more like 60 to 70 percent of what was stated.
Why?
SOLD more Power Supply's.

240 Watts?
Simply divide by 10. = 24.
For 60 percent, take 60 times 24. = 144 Watts
70 percent? 168 Watts.

300 Watts?
60 percent is 180 Watts.
70 percent is 210 Watts.

I wouldn't try to run a Barbie doll with that low a Wattage, of Power Supply. (Barbie doll? What?)

Need at least a decent 350 Watt power supply, from today's manufacturers.
80 percent constant duty cycle, for most good units; or higher.

So...............
Max out the Intel Pentium 4 CPU.

4GB's of 533MHz DDR Sdram ram memory.
(PC4200, or PC4300. Depends on the manufacturer as to how they name it)

By the time you spend that much money, you may as well buy another Motherboard, Processor, Ram Memory, and Power Supply.

Yes, may as well buy a better computer.

I know. Quit trying to cheer you up.

Around here we have Craigslist, and Ebay, for two places.
Could pick up a better computer, for around the same money, as you would pay for all the upgrade parts above.

Which is better? Upgrade the Processor, or upgrade the Ram Memory/
For the better 'Bang for the Buck', upgrade the Ram Memory.

The CPU (Processor) has a built-in cache.
L1 cache, and L2 cache. (Newer CPU's have an L3 cache)

The Cache is a small memory area for the CPU.
It is the FIRST memory area the Processor (CPU) reads.
This is because it operates at the same frequency rate, as the CPU does.
(Frequency rate = 'Speed'. Operates at the same 'Speed')

Next inline is the Ram Memory.
Ram Memory -> typically, operates at half of the Processor's Front Side Bus. (FSB)

This is why upgrading Ram Memory is a good idea.

It isn't so much of getting Ram Memory, that operates at a higher frequency rate ('Speed'), as it is to have MORE ram memory.

Example;
PC3200 compared to PC4200.
4GB's of PC3200 is better than 2GB's of PC4200.

(DDR Sdram at 400MHz = PC3200)

Moving on............

Motherboard chipset:

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The motherboard chipset for your computer, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

{Motherboards that support the Intel Core i technology, (Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, etc), do NOT use this motherboard chipset technology. Neither do some of the AMD CPU's }

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

As stated previously, the Northbridge chip handles the Faster capabilities of a computer;
Processor (CPU), Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.

The AGP technology, and the PCI Express technology; ARE high-speed graphics.

Using a graphics card in a PCI slot, or using Integrated Graphics; is NOT high-speed graphics.

The slower capabilities of a computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.
1) PCI Bus / Integrated Graphics.

(Another term for Integrated Graphics, is OnBoard Graphics. A term that seems to have gotten lost.
It explains better; ON the motherBOARD )

2) IDE Bus
3) SATA Bus
4) USB Bus
5) Ethernet
6) Audio (Sound)

Point?
Look to see what the Northbridge chip is, as I have shown you; and you'll get a good idea of what Processor (CPU) support is.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

joecoolvette

Unfortunately, these are old processors and I don't see any available new. Newegg.com lists a couple available as refurbished. You may be better off getting a new computer with either a Intel I3 or current AMD processor.

I wish that I had better news for you.

When i start up my dimension 3100 dell desktop instead of a green light i get a flashing amber light. people say it is the power supply but the light wouldnt even come on if it was. can you please help me?


No, the light WOULD come on if it was a Power Supply problem.

1) If ALL of the LED lights on your computer were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

3) A typical Processor uses from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

Dell Dimension 3100 desktop computer?
An Intel Pentium 4.

Intel Pentium 4 model 640.
Can operate up to a frequency rate of 3.2GigaHertz. (3.2GHz)
Fits in a Socket 775 processor socket. (Also know as Socket T)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_2M_.2890.C2.A0nm.29

Can use up to 84 Watts.


You have enough power to light that LED light, but not enough power to turn the Processor on.

Cpu upgrade , please help


tech-gu818,

When looking to see what processors a computer will support, try to find out what motherboard chipset is on the motherboard, and the processor socket.

The motherboard chipset is the;
1) Northbridge chip
2) Southbridge chip

[Chip and Chipset are slang terms for Integrated Circuit, or IC.
A Processor is one type of Integrated Circuit]

The Northbridge chip is responsible for handling the Processor, Ram Memory, and high-speed graphics, such as AGP, or PCI-Express.

Integrated graphics, or a graphics card installed in a PCI slot, is handled by the Southbridge chip. The slower capabilities of a computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

This motherboard diagram may help further illustrate the above statements,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(You can also type,
1) Northbridge (computing)
2) Southbridge (computing)
in Wikipedia's search box to obtain more info )

How to find out what motherboard chipset the eMachines W3502 uses?
Three ways:

1) Go to the computer manufacturer's support website, and look under Specifications.
2) Download the free, tiny, program CPU-Z from CPUID.com
3) Download the free, tiny, program Belarc Advisor

Fortunately eMachines Support lists what the W3502 motherboard chipset is,

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=W%20Series&model=W3502

Chipset: ATI Radeon XPress 200

Now look for information on ATI's Radeon XPress 200 chipset.
For this we can go back to Wikipedia once more,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ati_radeon_xpress_200

Reading the top sentence in the first paragraph you will note,
".......Pentium 4, Pentium D, and Celeron processors, ......using either a Socket 478 processor socket, or an LGA 775 processor socket."

What isn't stated in the first sentence is that it will also support Intel Core2 processors. That is stated on the right side of the page, in the information box under the subheading - CPU Supported

I wouldn't think anything higher than an older E4400, or E4500 though.
The E4400, and the E4500 use an 800MHz Front Side Bus. So does the E5300 Dual Core.

The information box states that processors with Up To a 1066MHz FSB are supported.
I just don't know if there is a BIOS update needed, or if a BIOS update is available, in case it's needed.

Needed to change the voltage, and multiplier, so that a processor with a 1066MHz FSB can be used.

To summarize:

The ATI XPress 200 motherboard chipset, on your eMachines W3502, will support an Intel Dual Core E5300.

Advise:
Do Not forget to use anti-static precautions. Your body carries Static electricity. Static will fry out (Short circuit) computer hardware components.

A Processor is the most susceptible hardware component to static shock.

I would advise buying a cheap $6 ESD wrist strap, from some where like Radio Shack, or a similar store, and using it.
Clip the alligator clip to an unpainted surface of the metal frame, of the computer case. (Computer unplugged from power)

Barring this, make sure you touch the metal frame of the open computer case, before you reach inside. (Computer unplugged from power)
If you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return touch the metal frame again.

Make Sure the top of the Processor's case is clean, and the bottom of the Heatsink.
I use an old credit card to scrape both surfaces as clean as I can, then follow with Q-tips dipped in Isopropyl Alcohol.

Usually takes a few dipped Q-tips, as thermal paste is a gooey mess, and the alcohol takes time to break it down.

Isopropyl alcohol is also referred to as Rubbing Alcohol. 91 percent is best, but 70 percent will do. Nix on the 50 percent.

CAUTION!
Isopropyl alcohol is Extremely Flammable! Use in a well ventilated area, with no sparks or flames present.

Use fresh, new thermal paste, never try to reuse old thermal paste, or a thermal pad. Thermal paste properties break down over time, and the thermal paste becomes more of an Insulator, than a Conductor.

Thermal pads are only good for taking off, and flying at the cat.
They're Junk!
(Meooow! Hey watch it dude! You almost hit me with that!)

Thermal paste doesn't have to be Artic Silver 5. A good quality thermal paste, applied correctly, will get you down the road just fine. A 'Mom and Pop' computer repair shop, should have a one processor tube, for around $2.

You Should be okay with the same Heatsink/Fan combo, as the Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 puts out less heat than a Celeron D 352, or around the same amount.

Be sure the inside of the computer sparkles, as well as the Heatsink, processor fan, and the inside of the Power Supply. Use a can or two, of compressed air for computers.

(Celeron D's are not dual core processors. The Pentium D's are)

The motherboard chipset of the Dell Dimension 2300 Desktop PC, will not support a processor with an 800MHz Front Side Bus frequency rate.

Only Intel Pentium 4's that use a Socket 478, 1.75 Volts, and a maximum of a 400MHz FSB.

The Intel Pentium 4 HT 3.0GHz processor has an 800MHz FSB, (As you have already stated), and uses 1.475 to 1.55 Volts.

The motherboard chipset for that Dell Dimension 2300, is an Intel 845GL.

This list on Wikipedia, shows you parameters the Intel 845GL chipset supports,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets

Not a good outcome, sorry. Just stating the facts.
